It may have become second nature to ignore your own needs, but remember: you skip on your self-care at your peril. (more…)

Make ‘Me Time’ A Reality.

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

At Empowering Mums, we actively encourage our mums to take control of their lives and to take care of themselves. Here are some great tips to ensuring ‘me time’ becomes a reality in your life.

Value Yourself: Value Your Time
If you constantly find yourself taking care of the needs of others but never your own, ask yourself how much you value your time. If you never find time to satisfy your own needs, how can you truly value your own life? It is essential you take time out to relax, revitalise yourself and enjoy life!

Take Care Of You

If you continue to neglect your own needs, you will become exhausted and resentful, leaving you and your family in an unhappy state. Taking care of yourself will enable you to become a more energetic and enthusiastic mum – a great gift for your children! (more…)
