Self-care: The Key to Feeling Like Yourself Again
Self-care is such a hot topic and there is no better time to make it a priority than when you're expecting. Making time to take care of yourself will make you better able to take care of someone else and is a great habit to cultivate, that you can take from bump to beyond.
But while it is important for all mothers, it can be especially challenging to maintain a self-care routine during pregnancy and after giving birth. It can be hard to commit to “me” time, slow down and unwind but ultimately, it’s about making yourself and your well-being a priority. At Matrescence, we believe that self-care is essential for a healthy and happy motherhood journey. Our products are designed to make self-care easy, enjoyable, and consistent for expectant and new mothers.
There are many different ways to practice self-care, but we believe that there are four core pillars of self-care for mothers: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
Physical self-care is all about taking care of your body. This includes eating a nutritious diet, implementing a daily skincare routine, getting regular exercise, and getting enough sleep. Emotional self-care is about managing your emotions in a healthy way. This includes things like staying connected with supportive people, journaling, and practicing meditation or mindfulness. Mental self-care is about caring for your mind. This includes things like learning new things, setting aside time for relaxation, and challenging yourself mentally on a regular basis. Spiritual self-care is about connecting with something larger than yourself. This can include practicing gratitude, spending time in nature, or participating in a religious or spiritual practice.
No matter what type of self-care you choose to practice, the most important thing is that you make it a priority in your life. Self-care is not selfish – it’s essential for a happy and healthy motherhood journey.
We believe that every mother deserves to prioritize her own self-care. We hope you’ll join us on this journey!
