In this new year, we want to be more transparent with our heart for moms. We're a mom-led team, experiencing the balance between work and motherhood daily. It takes a village to raise a child, and we want to join yours. We're on your team. For years, we've highlighted that we're a mom brand, but this year, we want to share exactly what that means.

To help start the new year well together, we want to share a Mom Self-Care Checklist with you!

As a mom, it's easy to put your needs on the back burner while attending to the demands of family, work, and daily life. However, the arrival of a new year brings an opportunity for renewal and self-care. Start the year off right by prioritizing yourself with this New Year's Mom Self-Care Checklist. Let's explore simple yet impactful ways to nurture your well-being, set goals, reflect on the past, and make time for self-care throughout the year.

  1. Write goals for the new year:

Take a moment to reflect on the year ahead. Set realistic and achievable goals for yourself, whether they are personal, professional, or family-related. Writing them down will help you stay focused and motivated throughout the year.

  1. Start a new book or journal:

Indulge in some literary escape or personal reflection by starting a new book or journal. Carving out time for reading or writing can be a therapeutic and rejuvenating practice that brings moments of calm amidst the busyness of life.

  1. Plan and schedule appointments:

Take charge of your health by planning and scheduling essential appointments. From routine check-ups to dental visits, make sure to prioritize your well-being for the year ahead.

  1. Delete old files from the computer:

Clear digital clutter by organizing and deleting old files from your computer. This will free up space, improve efficiency, and give you a fresh start for tackling new projects.

  1. Reflect on the previous & new year:

Set aside time to reflect on the experiences, lessons, and achievements of the previous year. Allow yourself to acknowledge growth and areas for improvement. Embrace the opportunity to envision the possibilities of the new year.

  1. Create a morning routine:

Design a morning routine that sets a positive tone for your day. Incorporate activities that nourish your mind, body, and spirit, such as meditation, exercise, or enjoying a quiet cup of coffee. Starting each day with intention will enhance your overall well-being and mindset.

  1. Plan days throughout the year to take social media breaks:

Strive for balance and prioritize mental well-being by scheduling days throughout the year to take social media breaks. Disconnecting from the digital world can provide a much-needed respite and allow you to be present in the moment.

  1. Burn your favorite candle:

Indulge in a simple yet soothing act of self-care by lighting your favorite scented candle. The soft glow and comforting aroma will create a relaxing ambiance, promoting a sense of tranquility and calm.

  1. Create an evening routine:

Craft an evening routine that encourages relaxation and quality sleep. Disconnect from electronic devices, engage in a calming activity like reading or taking a warm bath, and ensure you get the rest your body needs for the following day.

  1. Start a new fitness routine:

Prioritize your physical well-being by incorporating a new fitness routine into your schedule. Whether it's a daily walk, yoga sessions, or joining a fitness class, find an exercise regimen that suits your preferences and helps you stay active and healthy.

  1. Call a loved one/friend:

Nurture your relationships by setting aside time to connect with loved ones and friends. A simple phone call can be a meaningful way to strengthen bonds and find support in the joys and challenges of motherhood.

  1. Clean out your closet:

Declutter and refresh your wardrobe by cleaning out your closet. Donate or discard items that no longer serve you and make space for clothing that makes you feel confident and stylish.

  1. Make time for you:

Carve out dedicated "me time" throughout the year. Whether it's indulging in a hobby, practicing self-care rituals, or simply enjoying a moment of solitude, prioritize time for yourself. Remember, you deserve it!
