WHY YOUR MENTAL MAINTENANCE NEEDS NURTURING AS MUCH AS YOUR KIDS
Have you ever had one of those days when everything seems to be driving you crazy?
Maybe you dream of being curled up on a couch under a blanket, reading a book that’s been on your list forever. All you can hear is the crackling of the nearby fire. It’s quiet. Peaceful.
What’s stopping you from taking off for a few days on a solo retreat? No, it’s not a ‘snortable’ question.
I’ve taken my share of solo retreats away from my family over the years. I will tell you that not only does my family survive without me, it brings us closer.
Happy Mom, Happy Family Life
Don’t get me wrong, I love my family. But they need time away from me as much as I need time away from them.
We always seem to put ourselves last on the priority list, don’t we? But I’ve learned, when I’m feeling at my wit’s end, it’s time to escape by myself for a while. It’s time for a solo retreat.
Someone once said to me that in order to raise happy kids, they have to have a happy mother.
As for money, I get creative. I’m actually really frugal, but sometimes I find a spa retreat is worth the splurge. A facial. A massage. Sleep. Oh yes, pure bliss.
When it comes to the time challenge, I make the time.
As mothers, we see taking time for ourselves as selfish. One that riddles us with guilt. Do I feel that guilt as I pack my bag? Sure. Every single time.
Escaping for a few days is worth more to me than a therapy sessio. It's worth the commitment to my own peace and happiness.
