    The role of a mom and wife is not just those titles alone. We wear many hats and play major roles in our children and spouse's lives. We get tired, but we still take care of our families and home. I don't know about you all, but I take self care very seriously and I make it a priority too. Self care doesn't necessarily mean getting a massage or doing your nails. It is more of a mental and well being situation. Below, I have listed 4 self care tips for the busy mom and wife... Enjoy!!!!

Self Care Tip #1- Mediate/Journal

    I am an advocate for meditating and journaling. There is something so soothing about sitting in silence and getting in tuned with your mind and soul. Throughout the day, we are constantly thinking about everything and we are constantly on the move... We have to set a time and a quiet place to just unwind and release. My quiet time and place is either early mornings or late nights on my patio and I just sit in peace and just journal. In my journal, I write down all of my thoughts and feelings, I jot down my dreams and goals. I love writing and it just brings me joy and I feel a weight is lifted off my shoulders after I pour my heart out.

Self Care Tip #2- Bath/Hot Shower

    I know some people might have either a bath tub or stand up shower, either way, It is very calming to take a hot bubble bath or a hot shower. For me, it releases stress and the muscle aches that are caused by it. For a bubble bath or shower, I recommend using either lavender or Eucalyptus scented bath soaps those scents are great stress relievers. Body sugar scrubs are also great too. They can help with dry skin and makes your skin feel super smooth. When you are clean and refreshed, your mind also feels refreshed. 


Self Care Tip #3- Stay in Bed!!!!

This tip has to be one of my favorites. There are some days where I just stay in bed and do absolutely NOTHING. Your body will tell you when to take that break. Do not feel bad, your kids and hubby will be A ok!!! lol. I know us boss moms are not getting a full 8 hour sleep even though we want to it's just not realistic at times. Sis, when you feel exhausted or mentally/physically drained close that bedroom door and lay on that bed. You won't regret it. 


Self Care Tip #4- Read or Listen to your Favorite Book

    Writing and reading has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy it to the fullest. I like reading books that are motivational and inspiring. I believe in feeding my mind positive and motivational things. I know we are super busy, so I set at least 30 minutes a day to read a book. If not 30 minutes, I make time to at least read one chapter a day. Right now I am currently reading "Buy Yourself The F*cking Lilies" and it is inspiring. I will link the book below if you want to read it.

I hope these 4 tips help you with your self care journey!!!!

Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

Wednesday, September 1, 2021

    


    It is September 1st. Can you believe it? The year is almost over. I have been on Instagram and this year alone, I have seen so many people invest in themselves. I have seen so many people either quit their jobs or leave from full-time to part-time to work on their businesses. It is truly inspiring to see. After seeing all of that, It made me wonder about what I am doing and my dreams. I am so happy and content with what I am planning on doing. One thing I do know is that although this is where I want to be because I know the outcome will be amazing, It is very uncomfortable because I am sacrificing things. However, I am comfortable with being uncomfortable.


    Sometimes, we have to place ourselves in an uncomfortable situation just to be successful later on. Being uncomfortable doesn't necessarily mean that it will hurt you, it's just that you may have to do some things that may require you to feel uneasy. Such as, going to sleep late, waking up super early, doing countless research on what it is you are working on and the list goes on. On my podcast, Elizabeth Jacas Blogs Podcast, I speak about being Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable it's a great listen and I drop some amazing gems. This link is on anchor fm, If you have Spotify, this would be the link to the podcast, Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

    As always, thank you for your continued support. I have many other projects up my sleeve and I have something for you guys really soon. Let's crush September and meet all of our goals.
