Mothers often take pride in their ability to care for others. Keep babies warm and comfortable, apply lotion to their delicate skin, wipe their tears (among other things). It can be difficult to prioritize self-care, and being a mom can be draining at times. If you have ever been on an airplane, the flight attendant will advise you to “put your oxygen mask on first before helping others with theirs!” They should also mention that this advice could help you survive motherhood! Whether it’s time alone or time with friends, taking a break to recharge is essential.
