This scene from Bad Moms is hilarious. However, you’d be surprised how many moms I’ve talked to who actually agree with it! Being mom is a full-time job – and one that comes with limited PTO. Taking time away from family and kids is sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself.
Here are five signs this could be the case for you.
1. You often hear yourself saying (outloud or to yourself) “I just need a break.”
Girlfriend – Listen to what you are telling yourself. If you think you need a break: you do! Things don’t have to be at catastrophic levels to warrant a retreat or mom-cation. Even low amounts of stress on a regular basis can keep you from being your best.
2. You’ve started to resent certain things (or people).
Are there some days where you feel that if you have to answer one more question, respond to one more email, fix one more meal, or fold one more load of laundry you will absolutely lose it? You’re not alone. Adulting is hard work! Psychologists have proved that time outside of your normal routine to connect with other women helps wonders!
3. You’ve stopped doing things you love.
Have you found yourself bowing out of chances to hang with friends? Ditching the morning workout you normally can’t live without? Hitting the snooze button instead of getting up for your beloved morning “me time?” When you’re in need of some time away, even the things you love doing can lose their luster.
4. You have lost motivation for pursuing your goals.
You were on-fire a few months ago: Reading self-improvement books. Listening to podcasts. Checking goals off left and right. But now, you seem to have forgotten why you started them in the first place. You can get your motivation back with some intentionally planned time away.
5. You just want some time away.
Have you heard friends talk about time they’ve taken away and want this for yourself? Are you craving the opportunity to take care of “just yourself and yourself alone?” You deserve it! You don’t need to have any other reasons to need time away other than wanting more for yourself.
Did you find yourself in any of the scenarios above? If you’re a driven, dynamic, hard-working mom, chances are you’re up there somewhere.
That’s okay. Many of us feel this way from time-to-time. Regular time away from your regular routine to take care of yourself, relieve tension, and return home ready to take on the world again is so beneficial. So, give yourself the permission to take some time away…and then schedule it!
And…Here’s What You Can Do About It!
I’ve decided to start offering retreats because I’ve heard loud and clear the need for busy moms to take time away. A girls’ weekend of drinking wine, sleeping ’til 10, and laying by the pool for hours is great, but in order to come back home ready to take on the world, you need something more.
This is exactly the reason I’ve put together a weekend retreat to provide you with the time, space, tools, and inspiration to do less and be more in your everyday life.
With the backdrop of the beautiful town of Crested Butte and fresh mountain air along with peaceful, luxurious accommodations, I’ll lead you through an intentionally planned weekend where you will:
↠Hit the pause button on life’s demands and commitments with time carved out especially for you
↠Nourish your body with healthy food and learn tips for optimizing your nutrition even amidst the busiest of schedules
↠Feel invigorated through fitness adventures – hiking, stand-up paddle boarding (no experience required), yoga, and plenty of time outdoors
↠Connect with other women for laughter and support in making these new commitments to ourselves
↠Enjoy an opportunity to give back to others through a special art-inspired project
