Let’s take a timeout, no, not the kids… you! When is the last time you pampered yourself, felt amazing in your skin, or even had a hot shower with peace? If it took you longer than a few seconds to answer these questions, it’s been too long. As mothers, we are always putting our kids first, and our kids will only benefit from our relentless pursuit of being perfect for them. But… there is a ‘but’ in this case, we lose ourselves a little. We no longer make the time to feel and look amazing like we used to. We wake up, look in the mirror and see bags under our eyes from lack of sleep, crow’s feet creeping in, and our hair is one fun bun away from being a bird’s nest, literally.
We all know there is countless literature that states “when mom is happy, the family is happy” and the topic of “how to make time for yourself” is routinely covered in today’s media. However, with all this research, data and conversation why do we still struggle? Not anymore! Time to start feeling and looking our best for the better of our families. Let’s look at all the ways you can find time for yourself without feeling guilty.
Fast food, what? Hold on, ladies. We’re not suggesting that you make a quick trip to the McDonald’s drive-thru – meal prepping is the new fast food!
Prepping meals in advance clears up about an hour during the busiest time of your day and will relieve you of the dreaded question “What’s for dinner, mom.”
That might be a bit of a stretch but when you clean your house, don’t go overboard. We can get caught up in trying to make sure that everything is flawless but, they don’t need to be. Clean a little each day instead of an all-day overhaul.
Another sentence we all dread. That’s why fostering independence in your child is so critical. Denis Waitley, one of America’s most respected authors, keynote lecturers and productivity consultants on high-performance human achievement once said, “The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.”
Teaching your child independent play frees up time in your day for a sanity check and some relaxation. Ask for help, and don’t feel guilty. Getting a babysitter or nanny isn’t a sin; in fact, asking other family members to watch the kids is an excellent way for them to build strong relationships with one another.
Now that we have cleared up some time, how should we spend it? Well, for starters looking and feeling our best go hand in hand. Let’s start with a trip to a spa, Beautique Med Spa in Woodbridge offers all of the traditional spa treatments like a manicure, pedicure, facial, and so much more.
We all know how great we feel after a really, good workout. So, why not workout your skin?
Facials are one way to look great, they help rejuvenate your skin, liven up your complexion and takes years off your appearance, leaving you looking younger, brighter, and refreshed. Whether your skin needs a moisturizing facial or an all-over boost, at Beautique Med Spa in Woodbridge, your needs are met, and your skin is adequately assessed.
Want your youth to last forever; you’re not alone. Botox has been on the rise, and it is an extremely safe procedure. The treatments themselves last for months and are very cost effective. Get rid of those crow’s feet and frown/worry lines all while enjoying some much needed ‘me’ time, out of the house. Beautique Med Spa in Woodbridge specializes in making you feel beautiful, and there is little downtime with Botox treatments, so your day to day activities won’t be interrupted.
Do you enjoy doing your makeup, or never leave the house without your ‘face’ on? If so, I bet eyebrows take up a bunch of your time; which we already know you have so little of. Microblading is the answer. Imagine waking up with your brows completed and perfect, every morning. It’s like Christmas morning, every morning. The procedure is fully customizable to suit your face shape, hair color, and skin tone. It’s honestly amazing and so worth it!
Feeling like your skin needs an allover pick me up, or maybe you just need to bring some life back into it? No problem, microdermabrasion or chemical peels are the treatment for you. They help to get rid of acne scarring, sun damage, large pores, fine lines, wrinkles, dull or uneven skin tone, and it’s a general preventative anti-aging treatment. There are several chemical peel options available to suit your needs and skin concerns. Beautique Med Spa in Woodbridge will assess your skin and prepare some options to choose from. Results include improved texture, and makeup appears smoother on the skin, vibrant skin that glows and enhanced collagen growth and added confidence from looking and feeling your best.
If you’re not ready to dive into the full antiaging regime just yet, getting your nails done is just as relaxing. Manicures and pedicures are both relaxing and add a touch of color to your everyday look. We see our hands all day, every day, so why not glam them up? A fresh coat of nail polish on perfectly shaped nails is just what you need.
Great. With so many options to help you feel and look your best, Beautique Med Spa in Woodbridge is the place you’ll want to book your free consultation and enjoy a few hours of pampering. Not only will you feel better, but your whole family will also be happier and see the difference in you. Stay sane by making yourself a priority.
