5 Amazing & Cheap “Me Time” Activities for Moms

 As a mom, it can feel near impossible to schedule time for yourself. Not to mention the fact that you probably feel guilty every time you do manage to snatch a few moments peace. 

However, me-time is crucial for your overall physical and mental wellbeing, allowing you to relax and recharge your batteries away from your daily commitments. 

Not sure what to do for your me-time?

Keep reading to discover five amazing me-time activities that you will love and that will not break the bank.

  1. Indulge in a massage

Who does not love a relaxing and tension-busting massage? With the ability to improve circulation, stimulate your lymphatic system, reduce the amount of stress hormones your body produces and improve your overall skin tone, you do not have to pay a fortune for a professional masseuse to enjoy a good massage. 

Instead, ask your partner or a close friend to step in and lend a helping hand. You can find a whole host of YouTube videos that demonstrate massage techniques. Plus, for even more relaxation, head to CBD Guru to find premium, yet inexpensive, CBD massage oil. 

  1. Paint your nails

Again, there is no need to book in for a costly manicure (although feel free to do so if you can afford it). Simply, lock yourself away in your bedroom or bathroom and take 20 minutes to give yourself a full manicure and pedicure complete with exfoliation, massage and choice of polish. 

Make this experience even more Zen by playing some tranquil music and lighting some aromatherapy candles. If you close your eyes, you will be transported back to your last spa break.

  1. Read a book

Whether you prefer to read a novel or just flick through a magazine, the key to this me-time activity is in making sure that you are completely alone and without interruptions. Choose to sit in your backyard, on the sofa or wherever you think you can get some peace and quiet. 

If you are worried about being disturbed, ask your partner to take the kids out for an hour. You deserve the break!

  1. Plant some flowers 

Being a mom can be super stressful, so it can be a good idea to find a me-time activity that is great for relieving tension and making you feel more calm. Gardening is the ideal pastime for this. 

Whether you fancy creating your own mini herb garden, you choose to plant some spring bulbs or even if you fancy flexing your muscles and doing some landscaping, the simple act of being in the fresh air surrounded by nature will instantly make you feel less stressed.

  1. Have a nap

It might seem incredibly decadent to have a nap in the middle of the day, especially as you probably have a million and one things on your to-do list, but if you are feeling tired or worn out, a nap might just be the pick-me-up that you need. 

Even just 10 minutes of daytime shuteye can work wonders for your mood and overall wellbeing.

4 Destinations that Both Kids and Adults Will Love After Covid

 With most vacations being off the cards for the greater part of last year, you may now be starting to look for the best places to take your kids once travel restrictions ease globally. 2020 was a tough year for both kids and adults, and with most people now ready for a break, here are some of the top destinations to treat yourself to a vacation to. 

  1. Hawaii

Whether you are planning to travel as a family or looking for a guilt-free trip away from the kids, Hawaii is a great option for everyone, no less because it is close to mainland USA and is currently open to people who can show a negative COVID-19 test. Then, if you cannot wait until restrictions ease across the world to travel, Hawaii is a great destination where you can soak up the sun, learn to surf, and explore exciting places of natural beauty, such as dormant volcanoes. To enjoy a vacation that you have previously only dreamed about, you should book accommodation at Waikiki beach resorts for the ultimate Hawaiian experience.

  1. Finland

Finland has always been a popular option with families across the world due to the country’s connection to the Moomins and Santa Claus, and this is not likely to change after COVID. 2021 is also the perfect time to travel to Finland as a family since many of the celebrations for the Moomin’s 75th anniversary, which took place in 2020, are still in effect, such as special exhibitions across Helsinki and beyond. Not only this, but Scandinavia has maintained constant COVID rates throughout the pandemic, and so traveling here should be fairly safe when borders re-open. 

  1. Florida

If you want to enjoy a vacation closer to home in 2021, Florida has been a children’s paradise since the opening of Disney World. However, Florida offers amazing activities for both children and their parents, with there even being adult-themed activities in Disney Springs, with late night clubs and bars opening every evening. You should also consider exploring the natural environment while you are away, such as going on a dolphin-watching boat trip or spotting alligators in the Everglades. 

  1. The Maldives

Although you might associate the Maldives with honeymoons, this is not the case, and there are many child-friendly activities that your family can enjoy while you are away. While you can recline on one of the Maldives’ many beaches and perfect your tan, you can book a place for your kids at one of the many kid’s clubs along the coast, ensuring that both the adults and children in your party can have the vacation that they have dreamed about. 

Compromising on the family vacation that you have planned when you have kids can be frustrating. However, as this guide has shown, there are many destinations where you can enjoy the best of both worlds and ensure that both you and your kids are able to create memories that you will all treasure forever.
