If you are an organised Mum then you may already have things planned to do over the Summer. But have you thought about yourself?
Keeping the smalls occupied and fed, possibly working and keeping the house clean can be a real emotional drain. I think it is important to make sure you have plenty of healthy snacks for yourself.
Also why not treat yourself to a bunch of flowers to brighten the place up and keep you in a good mood.
Mum’s Summer Bucketlist (and dad’s too)
For your own mental health I think it is important to plan things for you. Give yourself something to look forward to. I intend to plan something for each week as a treat.
If you do have an opportunity for someone else to look after the children whilst you have a treat then do remember to checkout money saving websites for good local deals. Not only are you saving money but you are supporting local businesses too. Or ask about on Facebook if there is someone local who you could support.
Things you can do at home or pay to go out and have done:
Deep conditioning hair treatment
Things you can do at home
Exercise – this can be as little or as much as you like. You could even do it with the children.
Movie and chocolate
Hot chocolate with marshmallows
Read a book
A nice meal – splash out and treat yourself, or grab a takeaway meaning no washing up too
Leaving the house
Trip to the theatre
Go shopping – shoes, clothes, handbags
Socialise with friends (or your partner)
Do you have any other ideas? Will you be making a Mum’s summer bucketlist for the holidays?
