Do you find yourself dwelling on all the bits of you that you don’t like? Well, stop it! Instead, start concentrating on the bits you love. Struggling? Ask your friends what they think your best qualities are, and listen to them!
From nailing a project at work to getting your kids to eat broccoli, take the time to acknowledge your achievements and celebrate them. You could even give yourself a gold star. Hey, if it’s good enough for the kids, it’s good enough for you!
Often, as a mum, the last person you tend to spend money on is you. Well, newsflash, you deserve treats too! And it doesn’t have to be a big splurge. Simply upgrading something you use every day can make you feel that little bit more special. For example, the new Venus Platinum razor is the first Venus razor with a solid metal handle, so you can treat yourself to a high-quality, smooth and flexible shave every day (or however often you can be bothered – that’s up to you too!).
It’s important to make time for yourself, whether that’s getting to that Zumba class or taking time for a long soak in the bath. Do your best to schedule in some “me time” most days, and you’ll really notice the difference.
It’s your life, your body, your skin. Do it your way. Wear what you want, listen to what you want, watch what you want. Don’t listen to the #haters!
Don’t ever feel guilty about taking care of yourself. You deserve it!
