Self care is so important for everyone. As a work from home mom, I always feel like I’m on the go and super busy.
I do homeschool my oldest and I’m busy running after a toddler all day. Self care to me is almost as necessary as water.
Too often, busy moms don’t take the time for themselves. I’m guilty of that too!
Are you taking the time to practice good self care? Well, even if you aren’t, you don’t need to feel badly about it.
Sometimes, we all need self care reminders.
Listen, we ALL forget about self care at one point or another. When I became a mother, it’s like that word flew out of the window.
I’m the type of person that needs reminders. I have a productive planner system that’s my best friend.
I’m not going to pretend I have it all together because I don’t! I need help along the way and that help comes to me from my bujo planner system.
So, I went ahead and created two free self care worksheets that you can print out. You can place them in your planner and make as many copies as you’d like.
These free printables are meant for your personal use only. Sometimes having self care reminders down on paper can help you actually take better care of yourself.
I always feel like I have so much thrown on my plate and I’m juggling too many things at once. What really helps me is having an organizational planner system that I can depend on.

I love having amazing and beautiful printables in my planner, printed and ready to go. Planning takes away my anxiety and helps me feel like a prepared and capable person.
When I created these worksheets, I always create a product that I would want in my own planner. Anything created by me is made with care, since I do put a few hours into anything I am creating.
But, that’s what we do when we love what we do, am I right? Don’t push self care to the side, mommas.
Moms need self care too.
Taking care of little humans can be downright exhausting. Do you feel like you’re always doing something for your child?
Can you remember the last time you took a day to relax and unwind? Yeah, me either.
That’s why these worksheets will come in handy. What I did was print out a couple of copies.
Since I use a bujo planner system, I tape in any extra pages I want to add to my week or month. I put one of those pages in at least once a week for a month.
At least filling it out once a week can really remind myself that I need to take the time to care for myself. When you’re a busy mom, you tend to put yourself last.
As important as it is to take care of our littles, our bodies need rest. Seriously, today I was just on the go all day.
Between homeschooling, working, and trying to keep both of my kids happy, I felt completely overwhelmed. I had to take a twenty minute nap.
It may not seem a lot to some people but it was A LOT to me. Even twenty minutes to sleep can help you out.
Self care shouldn’t be pushed to the side.
What is self care to you? It can literally be anything as long as it’s something you love and enjoy doing for yourself.
When my daughter wasn’t homeschooled, self care to me was grabbing a Starbucks after drop off and my morning breakfast. Self care was coming back home and binge watching Netflix before I got back to work.
Self care to you could be something completely different. But the goal is still the same.
The goal is to become more relaxed and unwind after a super long week. Self care is meant to help you feel put together and at peace with yourself.
So, what does self care mean to you? It could be a little different than most.
For example, some days I feel like I have a huge weight on my shoulders while working from home. A form of self care for me could just be to put the laptop away.
It could mean just to be present in the moment. Self care MEANS being present in the moment.
Recently, I took some time to pay more attention and be present at home. I was so surprised to find out that the whole week felt like self care to me.
Why? Because it had been a while since I took a day off work for mental health reasons.
Unpopular opinion: Today I CHOOSE to put myself first.
I’m sorry to say that a mom putting herself first is a super unpopular opinion. But, you need to think of it this way:
How can you happily take care of your child if you aren’t happy yourself? You see, it does nobody any good to have a stressed out unhappy mom every single day.
It’s not right and it’s just not fair. So, today choose yourself first despite what others may think or say.
Count any win, big or small, as a win. When I successfully upload a blog post during the day when my kids are up, I consider that a WIN.
When I create a series of printables and get to release my creative energy, I consider that a win.
Even a twenty minute nap feels like a WIN lately to me. What do you consider a win?
Take a moment to say this aloud, “Today I CHOOSE to put myself first.” Doesn’t that feel good saying it out loud?
You deserve to take the time to paint your own nails while listening to your favorite song. It’s time to binge watch your favorite show with no interruptions.
What’s sitting there on your Amazon Prime wishlist? Exactly, it’s time to order.
These are why Target runs exist! Treat yourself and pamper yourself.
There’s nothing wrong with that.
Don’t you deserve some time to yourself?
Some days, these questions run around in my head. Life can be tough but don’t forget to go easy on yourself.
We’re busy moms. We lead busy lives.
We’re raising tiny humans to be wonderful people. This takes time, this takes energy.
And to answer the question, yes you do deserve some time to yourself. Something as simple as putting on your headphones and listening to your favorite audio book.
A couple of months ago, I published my first book, It takes a Break. I wrote this book for moms who need that break.
That break to figure out who they are. I wrote this book for the moms that need that precious time to themselves.
This self help book is meant for moms who need that extra motivation right now. And this self help tool is exactly just that.
Self care isn’t just “some little thing” that’s not important.
Mental health matters. I know I need to have a positive mindset to be a good mother and a good person in general.
Self care helps me get there. Getting up early to do my makeup and make my favorite tea just sets my mood right for the entire day.
You can also pick out your outfit the night before and pick out your favorite shades of makeup. I have this favorite lipstick that I love to use.
Find accessories to wear that you love and do something you love everyday! I love watering my flowers, playing with my children, planning, and taking long walks.
Not just that, my website gives me motivation to keep going! This is where I get to write out the ideas that are going around in my mind.
Here is where I get to design, create, and most importantly have my own “me” time. Where does your “me” time go to?
Whatever it may be, you need a positive mindset to make it work. Being positive can help you during those tough times when you just are plain old tired.
I’ve been there before and I know what it feels like! That’s why self care is so important.
Self care isn’t just some little thing that’s not important. No, it’s a way of life.
It’s a way to take care of your life and make sure you are happy. Don’t neglect yourself.
As promised to my subscribers, I’m dedicating this month to self care and self love. These two free printables are my way of saying thank you for your continued reading and support.
My next few posts coming up will be all related to self care and self love. Next, I want to release a free sticker kit for self love and many little self care stickers.
Afterwards, I hope to focus the last two posts of the month on self love. Here’s where I will release more free worksheets, sticker kits, and printables you can use for your personal use in your planner.
Make sure you’re subscribed for all these goodies coming up. And feel free to send me an e-mail of what you would like to see from me in the future.
Once my self care month is over, I really want to take the time to dedicate a month to creating new marriage posts. I have found that it’s easier for me to write all that I can on one subject, a month at a time.
I hope it’s something you’ve enjoyed seeing lately.
Don’t forget to love yourself.
God has shown me time and time again that no matter where life may take us, we are so important to him. He loves us so much and shows it every single day.
I have to be grateful to God because of all the good I see in my life daily. You should too.
If you’re a woman of faith and want to join a community of Christian women who support each other, feel free to join us.
We’re a small group on facebook called Christian women faith group. Here is where you can share any prayer requests, any problems, and have a supportive community to help you feel better.
Hopefully, you can help this group grow and we can support each other in our faith and the journey God has us on. Having sisters in Christ on this journey can help you.
Take the time to rest and take care of yourself, mama. I know things can get overwhelming sometimes and you may feel as though you aren’t getting any breaks to yourself.
Praying is self care.
Praying is a great way to relieve all that self doubt and anxiety going through you. If you’d like, you can take a moment to pray with me.
I know that I’m tired and overwhelmed. It’s not easy trying to be the best mom and person I can be.
I’m coming to you for some help and guidance, Lord. Please help me rest my weary spirit with you.
Lord, I love you and I want to take the time to ask for you to help ME feel better about myself. I want to feel like I’m valuable and worth something.
And I know that you can help me get there Lord. All I need is you to help me feel that love I know I need.
Please guide me and protect me throughout my day Lord. Help me realize I need to put myself first in order to be able to help others.
Thank you for all that you’ve done Lord. I come to you with a grateful and open heart, ready to receive all of the blessings you give me.
Amen and amen.
Until next time,
