Are you a mom that always feels exhausted even you just woke up? You feel overwhelmed with the kids, your job, and taking care of the house regularly. Being a mother is a rewarding job ever, but as exhausting as can be. No doubt that our kids are adorable and our bundle of joy, but they are also full of energy. They’re the main reason why we are tired all the time.
Moms usually underestimate the benefits of having a vacation. What I’m saying is taking up a VACATION WITHOUT YOUR KIDS. Don’t you agree that you’re having a peaceful holiday with the kids? Yes, it’s fun indeed, but it’s so much tiring for us. It’s more tiring to go out with kids than staying at home, right. So are you not convinced yet? Here are some reasons to have momcation:
1. It prevents burnout
Being a mom is like working two full-time jobs. You don’t have time to take care of yourself, literally. Go to a beach, to the nearest coffee shop, to a spa, get your nails done, etc. Do not feel guilty about making time alone. You deserve it! Because it will keep you away from burning out, depression, anxiety, and chronic stress.
2. Finding and regenerate yourself
Do not feel shame to buy and do the things you want for yourself. Being alone is an advantage to regenerate yourself and find the real you again. Honestly, when we had the kids, it feels like we didn’t do the things that we are doing before. Whether we love to travel, shopping, mountain climbing, everything we want gets set aside.
Now it is the perfect time to go alone and do the things that you love. Being a mom isn’t bad at all, always remember that you deserve to be happy, too.
3. A new outlook on motherhood
Have you felt like everything is messed up even on the little things? Do you feel so overwhelmed by what’s happening that surrounds you? Most of the time, we lost our perspective on the essential things, and we focused on the little things. You need to take off everything on your shoulders for you to able to give more. That’s why having a rest is essential as your health.
You’ll get to realize that those things that don’t matter are not the things you worry about before. So if your feeling that you need some time alone, grab that! I promise you; you won’t regret it. You should never feel shame about getting time for yourself that you can be the best mom to your family. You’ll get back refreshed and renewed.
