Sneaking in a little pampering and me time is often difficult as a busy Mom. Its easy to skip taking care of yourself to take care of everyone and everything else- but you need some time to yourself too! I know when I carve out even a 20 or 30 minute block for some me time I’m a better happier Mom.
One really easy and relaxing way to sneak in a little pampering is to create a spa like experience in your own shower.
You’ve got to shower anyway right? Why not make that shower a pampering spa like experience? You can leave the bathroom clean, refreshed and relaxed with a few simple strategies.
Carve out the time.
Finding the time is my biggest issue for finding me time, but I’ve learned that a little creativity and planning can usually buy me a half hour.
Find something that will occupy your kids and get them settled into the activity. Just be sure the activity is one that they can do independently and won’t end up standing outside the bathroom door trying to talk to you while you shower.
My kids enjoy pattern blocks or other building materials, or I find a drawing lesson on youtube that they can watch and practice while I shower. When its been a really hard day, I simply turn on a cartoon and call rest time for everyone while I sneak off!
Set the mood.
A simple shower can turn into a relaxing one when you set the mood. Bring in a portable speaker and crank up your favorite playlist. The added benefit to music, is that it drowns out the sounds of your children trying to talk through the bathroom door. Light a few candles and put your favorite essential oils in a diffuser to finish setting the me time mood.
Invest in great products.
Elevate your shower with great smelling and skin pampering body products like Neutrogena Rainbath. With 5 refreshing scents, I always have the right scent for my current mood. I’m currently obsessed with the Pearn & Green Tea Renewing Shower and bath Gel.
I’m always guilty of forgetting to buy shaving cream, but now I don’t need it. Neutrogena Rainbath isn’t just a body wash; it works great as a shaving gel too!
When the day calls for a soak in the bathtub, you can also use Neutrogena Rainbath as bubble bath!
Be sure to head to Walgreens or Walgreens.com to pick up your favorite Neutrogena Rainbath scents for your spa like shower time! You can chose from Refreshing Original, Renewing Pear & Green Tea, Rejuvenation Pomegranate, Replenishing Ocean Mist, or Restoring Fresh Plum- or just grab one of each!
Take extra time for extra pampering.
Spend a few extra minutes painting your toenails or pampering your face with a mask to extend your me time moment.
Mom, you deserve to carve out a little me time for yourself! Use these easy tips to turn your daily shower into a pampering, refreshing me time moment!
