I put myself first a lot. I do not view it as selfish and feel it’s imperative to a healthy family. I make “self care” a daily priority in all different ways.

How do you mother yourself?
I put myself first a lot. I do not view it as selfish and feel it’s imperative to a healthy family.
I make “self care” a daily priority in all different ways.
I go to acupuncture weekly, I schedule walks with friends, I make time for girls’ nights and I pamper myself with manicures, pedicures and massages when possible.
How and why do you take CBD?
I recently have loved enjoying some Motherbar Moment Mints. I like to take them when I’m folding the laundry or before I get in my infrared sauna blanket to relax and disconnect.
I feel the calming, grounding effect is subtle enough where I don’t “feel off,” but enough to just take that edge off after a hectic day.
