The Best Evening Self Care Routine for Busy Moms and Women on the Go

woman holding petals - self care

While we can all agree that an ideal self-care routine might look like pouring ourselves a glass of wine after a long day, putting on a plush bathrobe and charcoal face mask and binge-watching a favorite tv show while our partners put the kids to bed, we can also all agree that incorporating a routine like that into our schedules is pretty far-fetched.

Creating a quick and effective self-care routine doesn’t have to be an involved process. For most of us, we’re busy and on the go much of the time, and even the mere thought of partaking in a complex self-care routine can sound like too much work at the end of a busy day. But fear not! You can still make time for a simple yet beneficial self-care routine that– if practiced consistently– will bring you some much needed inner (and outer) peace and overall calm to an involved and active life.

Just imagine if a friend came to us saying, “I’m sad,” and our response was to “just get over it, already!”. It may seem ridiculous, but this is the way we universally treat ourselves when we feel sad for long periods of time.

Let’s just get it out of the way: It’s safe to say that we all appreciate self-care and understand the benefits of incorporating caring practices and routines into our schedules to better ourselves, to recharge us, and to live overall happier, more balanced lives.

Sometimes, though, we really don’t have time to leave the office to go for a walk, or to take some peaceful time in your room for a thirty minute meditate while a fussy toddler bangs on the door, or the teenager who doesn’t yet have a driver’s license needs to go to yet another activity, or your significant other is asking “What’s for dinner?”.
