Take time for yourself with these self-care essentials every buys mom needs! These essentials fit in to your busy life and help you feel better.


About a year ago I was chatting with a friend about the topic of self-care. My friend is working on a counseling degree and the idea of self-care was a topic she was exploring in her studies that had extended to her personal life.

What is self-care? Self-care is taking time to take care of your self. As a very busy mom, you spend most of your day taking care of other people and it is exhausting! Now, it’s time to take some time, even just 5 minutes, and spend some time on you.

But figuring out how to get that time in can be difficult. So here are 5 products that can help any woman take care of herself as part of a normal daily routine.
