self-care ideas

As a working mum, it’s not all sunshine, painting, lollipops and slow coffee dates with girlfriends. In fact, if I’m honest it’s more like tears, fatigue-induced brain fog and the odd tantrum thrown in to keep us on our toes. As we start to roll into a long weekend here are 3 fun and easy weekend self-care ideas for mums.

Self-Care is those things we do that restore our energy, put the spring back in our step and help us feel happier and more optimistic (even when the kids are being…kids).

Not only does a little daily dose of self-care help you feel better about yourself but it is also proven to help with anxiety, feelings of loneliness and depression which as a mum I know there are times when getting out of these deep funks feels like a herculean effort.

With the extra days over the weekend, carve out some YOU time. Time for self-care, time for feet up, time to recharge your “Mum” batteries.

3 Fun and Easy Weekend Self-Care Ideas For Mums

Get dressed up.

Take a luxurious shower and shave your legs.

Take time putting on the body lotions and perfume. Put the lippy on, the big jewellery reserved for only special occasions, heck even strut around in your favourite high heels or boots.

The idea is you are dressing for you. Not to please your partner or someone else but YOU.

Crank up the tunes.

Have you heard the term dance like no one is watching? Well, sister whether you’re an ex back up dancer for Jo-Lo or you have two left feet. Crank up your favourite tune and dance around the house like no one is watching – This has to be the ultimate mood shifter.

Set goals and dream

I believe that we are all only truly happy and feeling alive when we are pursuing a goal or dream.

For some, this will feel uncomfortable and scary and that’s ok. We have all felt that however, I promise you that the water inside the pool of possibility is…calm and exciting.

So take some time daily to write down a goal you have. Close your eyes and step into the energy of your goal. Imagine that it’s already been done. Then…

Write down all you saw and felt then reverse engineer. Which means what steps do you know you must take to get you closer to achieving your goal. Don’t overthink this, simply free write.

Next, look at what you have written down and ask yourself this key question “What is the one thing I can do today that will help me reach my goal?”. Action that step, take that leap and the next right step will open itself up to you.


If you are feeling stuck in fear of failure and self-sabotaging feelings of not being “good enough” here are four ways we would love to support you.

YOU Deserve to Be Seen, Be Heard & Inspire Others

Let me ask you: did you once have big dreams, but as time has passed and your family has grown your dreams have taken a back seat or worse snuffed out?

You feel like you’ve lost part of the “spark” that makes you…YOU?

You can’t imagine spending another 5 years spinning your wheels, working hard, people-pleasing and helping others achieve their dreams whilst yours are left to collect dust. You Desire Something More!

You desire to live a life YOU love where you are seen, heard appreciated and fulfilled!

If this is you then sister I’m so excited that we have met.

You are in the right place to get access to all the tools you need to help you naturally overcome any challenges or obstacles life throws your way. Here is where you will uncover what it takes to be seen in your relationships, heard and appreciated; becoming an inspiration of greatness to others around you (your kiddos and friends). 

YOU will take back your vitality, balance and peace. Rise into the life you have pinned on your vision board. Not to mention finally wake up filled with passion and rejuvenated after a brilliant nights sleep, revved up and ready for anything!
