We asked Mum and content creator, Stavey Westlow, about her best self-care tips:

Self-Care #1  Sit and Read

For self-care, I love to sit down and read a book! I’m not talking about an audiobook or reading electronically. I mean picking up a physical book and reading. This allows me to take a moment to sit down which means I get to take a short break from momming all day!
It gives me the opportunity to expand my mind. I love books that teach me a new skill or way of life. Self-help books are my go-to!
By keeping my mind active, I feel it helps me improve my memory. As I’m learning I’m taking note of the things I want to remember to use in my life.

It reduces stress! Diving into any sort of book allows our minds to not be stressed about cooking and cleaning and working!

Self-Care #2 Nail Care is Self-Care

I love getting my nails done every three weeks as it allows me to go into the nail salon, have a friendly chat with my nail girl, get some pretty nails done, AND get a small hand massage at the end, too! Winning!
It’s not JUST about the aesthetics of it, it’s more so I know getting my nails done is something that is specifically for me, I don’t have to worry about another human being at that moment (Hey, dad! You’re watching the kid!) I get to take a seat on the chair, pick a color, and just allow myself to have “grown-up” time. But of course, nails are darn pretty!!
