Since I’ve become a mom, I’ve realized how easy it is to forget about doing the simple things for yourself. The urge to make sure that my son has everything he needs is definitely my top priority, but I also want to make sure that I’m making myself a top priority as well… even if it’s not much. These past few weeks, I’ve made sure to do 3 simple things every single day that I truly enjoy… and girl when I say simple that’s exactly what I mean.
The first thing I do after I use the bathroom, brush my teeth, and wash my face is make sure I go the extra step by doing my skin care routine… now I know you’re probably saying to yourself “girl why wouldn’t you do that every single day anyway?” & listen I hear you… but when you become a new mom, washing your face with just a warm towel is what you get lol or at least in my case. In the first few weeks of being home with the baby, my skin care routine was one of the last things on my mind & honestly I hated that for myself. So once I was able to get into a groove… cleanser, toner, moisturizer, eye cream & a detox face mask 1-2 times a week have been on the top of my list. I honestly feel better & just a little more awake and ready for the day after I’ve done my skincare, and like I said… now that I’m in a groove, there’s no turning back!
The next thing I do is make the bed. Ever since I was younger, I’ve always associated making the bed to the type of day I would have. One time in middle school (or maybe it was high school, I can’t remember) but anyway one time I didn’t make my bed before school & I felt like everything that could possibly go wrong… went wrong and from that day forward I told myself there was no way I could leave home without making my bed! So now with me being a SAHM, I feel like in order for me to get the day started properly, I have to make the bed… even if I’m just going from the bedroom to the living room lol.
And the last thing I do every morning is something that I have to do even if the other two weren’t able to make the cut… girl I’m definitely going to have a cup of coffee! Besides the fact that I simply enjoy the taste & that I enjoy posting a video of me making my coffee every day… girl it’s really magic in a cup! I went 9 maybe 10 whole months without a drop of coffee in system so honestly I’m just making up for lost time. But no seriously, I mean it could just be a mind thing… or drinking coffee while having a newborn is just essential to life! Either way, I’m going to have a cup of coffee and then I’m going to attempt to do all the things that I need to do & that’s that!
See…. I told you they were all simple things. But their all important things to me & I’m allowed to make them a big deal! So while I’m over here navigating & adjusting to my new life as a mom just know, that my face is cleansed, toned, & moisturized… my bed is made & I’ve had at least one cup of coffee!
