5 Achievable New Year’s Resolutions for Moms

Moms are truly the most incredible humans on this planet. They are selfless warriors that are so much more than juice boxes and great hugs. They put their kids, and a lot of other people, before themselves every single day. In a world full of errands and to-do lists, here’s one for all the moms! 

Self-Care

Moms are the caretakers of the entire family but they can often forget to take care of themselves. This year, make it a priority to put yourself first. Stressed? Book a massage. Worried about that bump on your foot? Take the time to schedule an appointment. Even if it means canceling an event to have a night of rest and recovery, it's okay, do it. Moms can't be expected to take care of everyone else on an empty tank. 

Accept the Chaos

I know, it’s so easy to say and so difficult to do. There is extra pressure for women to be able to do it all. Work, keep the home, care for the kids, be the social orchestrator for your entire family and do it all while keeping every hair in line. This year, don’t be afraid to accept the chaos. Literally, everyone, single or married, the parent or not, has experienced a messy house or accidentally missed an appointment. Cut yourself some slack – it happens. Reschedule the appointment and tidy up a bit later. Life will go on. 

Shameless Relaxation

“Can I go to a sleepover?” Just a few of the greatest words a parent can hear. It means one entire evening just for the adults. You can stay up late, watch your favorite shows, hog the snacks, and do it all kid-free. Don’t let sleepovers be the only time you take a break for yourself. If your kids are old enough, talk to them about boundaries and explain that even mom has limits. For the little ones, don’t hesitate to ask a family member to take them for a night. Aunts and uncles love time with the kiddos and mom can relax unapologetically. You can sleep in, take a relaxing bath, give yourself a mani-pedi, and fully recharge the battery. 

Laugh and Let Go

A final resolution for all moms this year, laugh and let go. We are harder on ourselves and notice more imperfections than anyone else. We have to give ourselves permission to be imperfect and know that that’s enough. Just as we tell the kids, shake it off, give it another try, and pay no attention to it. Laugh it off and let it go. 

There is plenty of room on the resolution list for eating better and exercising, but don’t forget to show yourself some grace. Cheers to 2022!
