Do you ever get time for yourself? When you are a busy mum, you seem to always be on the go. This means you probably don’t get the required time you need for yourself. Throughout your life, you often forget to consistently give yourself self-care. Well, in this article there are various books that will help you creatively find the time for self-care.
With 150 quick and easy self-care activities that’ll fit into even the most chaotic schedule, Self-Care for Moms shows readers how to incorporate self-care into their busy routines in practical, yet meaningful, ways.
In this book, you’ll find 150 realistic self-care activities that you can try right away. To help busy moms like you maximize any moment you can find for yourself, each activity is designed to fit easily within a set short time frame. For example:
- 5 minutes: Call a friend; Listen to a favorite song; Light a candle
- 15 minutes: Soak your feet; Read a chapter in a book; Enjoy a leisurely cup of tea
- 30 minutes: Give yourself a facial; Plan for a vacation; Go for a walk
- 1 hour: Meet a friend for lunch; Go for a manicure; Attend a workout class
You’ll also find ideas for activities that span larger amounts of time for inspiration and motivation to take some much-needed and well-earned extra time for yourself. There’s even a few aspirational activities, such as trips or projects, that last a day-or more-with a realistic plan for how to organize and coordinate your schedule to accommodate the occasional-but very important-extended time to focus on yourself.
Start taking time for you-it’s easier than you think and besides, you deserve it!

Before, I was not caring for myself and took care of my family as my number one priority. The Self Care Solution helped me realize that taking care of myself should be number one because how can I care for others if I am in bad shape?
Chronic pain disproportionally affects women, and the percentage of women who try to carry on with everyday life without addressing their own health issues is staggering. This is especially true for busy moms who put their children’s care above their own. Women also disproportionally suffer from disbelief and mis-diagnosis in regards to their chronic pain – including for post-pardum issues. Educating women about chronic pain and their options for living a more pain-free life is vital in addressing the gender gap, and ensuring moms stay healthy and happy for as long as possible.
