This Mother's Day, I made a strong effort to take extra good care of myself. My holistic, healing, self-care routine is extra important to me as a Mother of a very active toddler. My holistic, healing, self-care has always been important to me, but seeing now that Motherhood is a full-time job and a lot of work, it is of the utmost importance to me to stay well and feel good. This is why I make sure to stay well hydrated, rested, nourished, and enjoy as much healing laughter and calming relaxation as I can. I've been a meditator for 20 years and it has literally saved my life in many ways. I'm a passionate believer in being caffeine-free for many reasons and the most important reason is I do not believe in any stimulants. When I feel tired, I get extra rest or I take a nice soothing hot soak in the bathtub. I also enjoy soothing healing organic essential oils, like sandalwood and sweet orange, to help me feel rejuvenated and relaxed. It's true what is said that a healthy Mama is a happy Mama.
All children need their parents to be healthy, happy, comfortable, and well and it's our personal responsibility to make sure we stay well. I always make sure to be silent and still and listen to my Inner Voice, my Intuition, that guides and protect me 24/7, and I always listen quietly during my meditation. I'm also a holistic herbalist and I am a firm believer in treating my body like a temple. I thankfully attribute my vibrant youthfulness to a very healthy sane lifestyle and I'm very thankful for the wise choices I make everyday, including not putting anything synthetic and toxic in or on my body. My beautiful adorable son depends on me for love and care and he needs his Mama to be healthy and happy. I also need to be a healthy example to follow so that when he's older, he will see his Mama as a healthy, strong, happy woman and he will understand the invaluable importance of holistic, healing, self-care.
