Moms must practice self-care

It is important for mothers to take time for self-care.

With Mother’s Day on Sunday, it is important for moms to also remember their health and well-being.

When it comes to self-care for moms, it doesn’t have to be anything extravagant. Instead, it’s about making time for yourself and finding ways to relax.

Some ideas include taking a bath, meditating, reading a book or working on a project.

Dr. Adam Borland, a psychologist for the Cleveland Clinic, said don’t feel guilty. Everyone deserves a break.

“When moms prioritize their own emotional and physical well-being, they’re going to be a better version of themselves,” said Borland. “They’re going to feel better physically and emotionally, which is then going to make them a better mom, a better spouse, a better friend, a better family member.”
Self-care also means going in for regular check-ups with your doctor and not delaying any tests you may need.
