It’s a truth universally acknowledged that most moms live crazy-busy lives. With kids and work and housework to juggle, plus often a partner in the mix, plus, you know, remembering to eat… there’s little to no time for yourself. Thankfully, 2019 seems to be the year when the world is finally admitting that self-care matters. And what better way to incorporate some “me” time than with a few quick and easy self-care items moms love?
There are plenty of simple self-care ideas moms can implement, but when you’re beyond busy, any ambitions of booking an appointment in a float tank pretty much go right out the window. If you daydream about some uninterrupted quiet time or just eight hours of sleep — or a way to simultaneously make dinner and do something that makes you feel good about yourself — good news! We’ve rounded up the best quick fixes even the busiest moms can work into their routine.
An eye gel patch to de-puff your eyes while in the school pickup line? Check. An anti-aging roller you can use while helping the kids with homework? Check.
