You’re an amazing mom and you deserve a break. Here are 5 ideas for the perfect mom break.
Being a mom is a 24-hour job – with no statutory minimum leave. As much as we enjoy the youngsters, at some point, everyone needs a little break. We have collected the five most beautiful ideas!
Even as a mom, it is important to treat yourself to some me-time in between – just take care of yourself for a few minutes or hours.
There will definitely be someone to take care of your child for the time. This can be your partner, grandparents, friends or just a babysitter.
So that you can completely clear your head, you should set a few basic rules:
Of course, we also have a few ideas on how you could use your free time:
5 AMAZING IDEAS FOR THE PERFECT MOM BREAK
1. A spa day
You don’t have to go alone to a wellness hotel on the other side of the world for three days to enjoy a spa day.
Many hotels offer a day pass with which you can use the entire wellness area.
Here you can simply switch off for a few hours and leave everyday mama behind.
2. Girls break
When was the last time you spent an afternoon with your girlfriends – without children? That was probably a long time ago.
Engage a babysitter for the kids and then it starts. Just do everything you want:
Have breakfast, go shopping, the cinema or maybe a relaxing massage appointment. That’s going to be great!
3. Explore your own city
You don’t have to drive far to see something new. Use the free time to explore your surroundings:
Browse the small shop around the corner, which you always rush past, try a new café instead of going back to the old one or just stroll through your neighborhood – you will discover completely new things.
4. Power properly again
Exercise in the fresh air releases happiness hormones and with a child there is often not much time for long workouts.
So, get out there and do a round of cycling, jogging or hiking.
Alternatively, you can of course use the mom time-out to finally go to the gym again, attend the yoga class or go swimming.
5. A dinner together
If your partner doesn’t have to take care of your child, give yourself a break. You quarter the offspring elsewhere and then you cook in peace – in pairs.
No baby porridge on the side, no mushy noodles because the child has whined and no swallowing because the child is already on a journey of discovery.
Sounds tempting, doesn’t it ?!
