10 Self-Loving Activities for Single, Busy Moms
1. Treat Yourself to a Gift
Is there something you have always wanted and never got around to buying for whatever reason? Maybe it's a Tiffany's bracelet or a Louis Vuitton handbag? Maybe you have always wanted to redecorate your home or room or buy your dream car? You don't need a special occasion to treat yourself. Busy moms deserve some love and a great self-loving activity can be shopping for yourself. No matter how big or small the gift, just be sure that it is something memorable, fabulous and splurge worthy.
2. Plan a Trip
Nothing rejuvenates the mind, body and spirit and says "I love me" like the perfect getaway. Opt for a wellness retreat to a new and exotic place like the Pacific Islands or the Caribbean for a weekend and just unwind. Self-love is all about focusing on you and tuning into your spirit. You are guaranteed, to return to work and home refreshed and re-energized and ready to take on the world.
3. Take Yourself to Dinner
Another great self-loving activity for busy moms is a night out on the town with yourself. This could prove to be a very peaceful experience. Pick your favorite restaurant or a restaurant that you have always wanted to try and order everything on the menu that your palette desires. Don't forget wine too!
4. Schedule a Spa Day
Nothing feels better than when you just lay back and let someone else do all the pampering. This is all about you now, so forget about the hubby and the kids and the job and allow your body to relax. Scheduling a spa session is the best fixer-upper and body and mind pleaser for every single gal.
5. Plan A Girls Night
A single woman will need this more than anything - her tribe at her side. Being around positive women who love, care for and support you is a must in every balanced mom's life. Spending time together with them should always be on the to-do list. So make the night activities special by popping bottles with your girls after work for Happy Hour.
6. Spend Time with Your Kids
Yes, you may be on mommy duty 24-7, but sometimes we are so busy posting on social media, working the 9-5 and the side hustle, cooking and cleaning that sometimes quality time with the kids can take the back burner. Schedule some time where it is just you and them and no distractions. Read a book together, watch a program on TV, visit the children's museum or just stroll through the park. After all for single moms our kids are our only constant.
7. Read a Self-Help Book
Knowledge is power. It is the key to unlocking the mind. Read a powerful book or two on self-love and personal development and learn about ways to better yourself as a person and as a woman. Two must-reads are Nice Girl Syndrome and Think and Grow Rich for Women. Also try journaling and exploring with this self-care book called Start Where You Are
8. Wear Single Slogan Apparel
So this one is for laughs and fun. If you are bold enough to walk around letting the world know you are single then this is the best way to do it. Let your fashion speak your truth loud and proud! There is no shame in being single so own it!
9. Go Speed Dating
