As a first time mom self care is one of the most important things I have discovered to help me from being so overwhelmed and helps keep our household intact.  Today I am highlighting 5 tips to take care of yourself as a mom.

Tip 1 – drink water 

Staying hydrated has so many health benefits Added bonus – it stops me from mindlessly snacking.


Taking care of my  hair is very important.  I have been using the AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner in the shower.  I love the way it makes my hair smell and how it leaves my hair feeling soft. AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner sulfate-free formulas help to rebalance hair’s optimal moisture to leave it feeling shiny, healthier looking, and more full of life.

Another shower must have product has been the AVEENO® POSITIVELY SMOOTH® Shave Gel.  My razor glides easily as I shave my legs.

With being a new mom I really try to enjoy every moment I spend in the shower.  It’s one of the few times I have to myself.

I have also been using AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® 60 SECOND IN-SHOWER FACIAL. The product has a thick consistency and leaves my skin feeling velvety smooth. It has become part of my daily morning and night time routine.  As a mom I have to use my time wisely, and this in-shower facial is the best thing.

Tip 3 – Exercise 

Prior to having our son I was an avid crossfitter.  Things have changed quite a bit and I find myself not having much time anymore. I make sure to either go on long walks in the evenings with the baby or the dogs. I also make an effort to exercise at least 2-3 times a week.  I feel so much better the more I move.

Tip 4 – Remember to Eat

Maintaining a healthy diet has been key to staying on top of things.  I always make sure I have all 3 meals which can be hard at times.

Tip 5 – Decompress at the end of the day 

I try to take at least 30 minutes to myself in the evenings. I use this time to either reflect on my day or just read.

AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner can be purchased in the hair care aisle at Walmart. AVEENO® POSITIVELY SMOOTH® Shave Gel can be purchased in the Personal care aisle at Walmart.
