Parenting is one of the best jobs in the world! Watching your little one grow & develop is one of the greatest joys in life. Of course, parenting comes with its own set of challenges and hardships. One of the challenges of being a parent is that it is a 24 hour per day job with no sick days! Not getting enough “me-time” is definitely something that many moms complain about. That’s why Luvs realizes the importance of giving moms enough time to get away and unwind! Today, I will be discussing 5 ways that I like to decompress after a long, busy day!

5 Ways That Busy Moms Can Unwind


In fact, Luvs has always been committed to providing diapers that are effective for busy, overworked parents. With the new Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™, baby can enjoy a softer & more absorbent feel than ever before*. With the large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and money-back guarantee, Luvs diapers are packed with features at an affordable price.
Speaking of overworked parents, did you know that nearly 2 in 3 moms have never taken a day completely for themselves? Furthermore, 81% of moms would prefer an entire day off from housework than dinner with their celebrity crush!** Isn’t that incredible? Moms work really hard from morning until night (and sometimes overnight, too) and they deserve more “me” time regularly! What do moms value most? Some things that moms really appreciate nowadays include sleeping past sunrise, watching television shows (not cartoons), and having an uninterrupted phone conversation! Check out this infographic to see why sometimes, mom needs a “time-out”!
For me, I have found several ways to decompress after a busy – and sometimes stressful – day of parenting. Here are my top choices:
1. Take a bath: With little kids in the house, even a bath or shower can sometimes be interrupted. So a quiet, peaceful bath alone is definitely one of the ways I like to unwind after a long day. The addition of some lavender-scented bath bombs boosts the relaxation factor!
2. Go for a walk: There’s something both rejuvenating and relaxing about being out in the open air. Being able to feel the breeze, smell the flowers and hear the birds is such a fabulous way to feel grounded when the everyday routine is stressful.
3. Watch TV: Sometimes, nothing is more relaxing than lounging in front of the television to catch up on a favorite reality TV series or to get lost in a gripping movie. Adding some yummy snacks and drinks to this equation makes this one of my favorite go-to relaxation solutions.

4. Meet with friends: When I need to get out of the house, meeting one of my best friends for a lunch or dinner date is so much fun! Even a quick cup of coffee can be fabulous. We can catch up on what’s going on in our lives and share some laughs.

5. Pamper oneself: Occasionally, I’ll handle a stressful day by pampering myself at home. I’ll create an at-home spa experience with candles, music & tasty snacks.
