We’re half way through Spring break. Having all three boys at home is keeping me busier than ever and some days I feel like I’m just putting out fires and falling in a heap as soon as Robbie gets home. If I don’t pay attention, the opportunity for mindful connection with the boys is easily lost in the busyness.
It’s important to take a break and come back to myself so that I am recharged for them.
Before children, we traveled to recharge. Got out of the city and into a hotel pool in Vegas or a spa in Palm Springs. I’d get a massage, read a good book on a deck chair with a margarita. Now we’re on the east coast, I’d love nothing more than to book a little beach cottage in the Hamptons or a cozy cabin in the Berkshires. But when you have three boys of wrecking-ball age, there’s not a person alive that will take your kids for a day, let alone a weekend.
So lately I don’t have a whole day to go to a spa, but once the boys are in bed I do have an hour. Our bathroom is my little getaway. I dim the lights, light a candle, take a shower, exfoliate, moisturize. The ritual makes me a less stressed mother and a happier wife.
Follain’s natural, toxin-free skincare products are perfect for creating a spa experience at home.
These are the products I’m loving this month:
