Mothers have a full-time job managing their family. Nowadays both parents do indeed work, but most of the tasks related to raising children remain with the mother. Whether she works or not, a survey has shown that a holiday is good from time to time.
During holidays, mothers do not have to think about doing the washing, the cleaning, the shopping, making sure that the children meet the agreements or about the kids preparing their sandwiches for school.
Being a mother is the most beautiful job in the world, of course, but it is also the most difficult one. And because it is such a difficult job indeed, it is good to occasionally take a rest. Once you are back from vacation you are a better mother because you are more patient, rested and more grateful for your life with your family.
Taking a break from family life is not only good for the mother, but also for the rest of the family. They, too, find out how much you do for them in this way and are more grateful for it. In addition, they become a little more independent and once you are back you would see them come help more often.
Not everyone has the opportunity, the time or the means to go on vacation, but any time you get to be free to do things for yourself will be very good for you and your family. That is why you will find some suggestions on the following pages to ease the stress a little.
Going on holiday is perhaps the best way to completely withdraw from family life. Even though you think you do not have time to go on vacation you actually do indeed if you plan it well.
Of course, you cannot just go on holiday on an impulse, you do have to plan things ahead for a couple of months, start organizing your planner and that of those who stay at home. In addition, make sure that you leave aside a little money every month so that you do not have to worry about how you’re going to pay things while on vacation.
Of course, you do not have to spend a month in a 4-star resort, keep it a little more low maintenance at the beginning. A four-day city trip with your best friend could be a great start, for example.
You are never completely ready as a mother and you always have something to do. Take one day off per month just for yourself, forget everything that has to do with family life and relax.
Read a good book, follow a course or visit a nice city in your neighborhood, there is nothing better than being a tourist in your own country.
Your family would fully understand this, you do everything for them and eventually, they find it more than pleasant to see you sparkle after your day off.
Schedule a morning a week to think about yourself, visit a yoga class, enjoy some quality time at a beauty salon, start a reading group with friends or have a nice cup of coffee with a good friend. The housework does not have to be done immediately and it is essential for your psycho-physical health to rest a bit. So what is stopping you from not thinking about yourself?
We hope that we have convinced you and that you are already checking out a nice hotel on booking.com, registering for a yoga class or that you are online ordering the latest book from your favorite writer.
Enjoy your well-deserved free time and vacation! ✈️
