I think most of us can safely say that mothers typically put everyone, and everything, before themselves. But I’ve always pondered how can you care for someone else, if you don’t tend to your own needs occasionally? I say this first hand, that this is something I struggle with daily since my earliest years of motherhood. Self care! I know if I don’t make a little time for myself, I start to lose my drive, and just get burned out.
With all the time my family has been spending at home, I have been doing whatever I can to carve out that little bit of “me” time. Whether its a 30 minute online yoga class or a hot bath, I’ll try to reduce my stress and immediately feel more motivated, making me more productive with my work and family. Then I can tackle any day.
Take Time to Take Care of Yourself
Let’s talk about taking the time to take care of yourself. The time is there, you just need to be diligent, and brave enough to parcel it off for yourself. Even now, with everyone packed into our New York apartment, 24/7, home schooling and trying to work, I’ve actually starting adding my “me” time to our daily calendars.
Needless to say, motherhood is an amazing journey. Watching my kids grow, urging them to be better and do better – all of it. It’s a magnificent thing to be a part of. It’s also very tiring. That’s right, rewarding and tough. Dove is well aware of the hurdles we all endure, which is why they want to encourage moms everywhere to take a beat and chill, even if it’s just for a few minutes. Do something a little indulgent. Sure, it’s tough given current circumstances, but that’s why I think its even more important than ever.
A Little Something for You from BJ’s
Dove has a little something for us moms this Mother’s Day. When you buy three participating Dove products from BJ’s Wholesale, you Dove will recieve 3 pack of Q-tips, valued at $9.99, for free. They come in so handy for minor makeup fixes, manicures, art projects, cleaning in between tiny surfaces, I use them for everything! The point is Q-tips are the duct tape of beauty, so this is an awesome offer.
BJ’s will also take the stress out of shopping with in-club pickup or delivery. Using the BJ’s app (or on BJs.com!), you can shop your local club inventory, find great offers, and place your order. It lets you do everything faster and more efficiently. That’s a bonus, to accompany the great savings you get from shopping at BJ’s compared to other retailers.
Some of my favorite self care rituals revolve around spa-like bath treatments, even the simple task of washing my hair feels like a spa session these days. BJ’s offers a massive selection of Dove products, so you can have plenty on hand when it’s your time to lock yourself in the bathroom for a soak and some relaxation. Here are some of my favorite Dove products, available at BJ’s:
Dove Nourishing Rituals Coconut & Hydration Shampoo, 40 oz.
Dove Nourishing Rituals Coconut & Hydration Conditioner, 40 oz.
