Moms...If I can convince of one thing, please let it be don't be a martyr. It seems to be our first instinct to take on everything under the sun, while at the same time refusing help. We're superheroes right? Well, we can still be superheroes when we're taking care of ourselves. Every busy mom needs some me time...and, most importantly, some relaxation time. We're going a mile a minute most of our waking hours and I promise it will pay off if you hand the kiddos off for an hour or two to focus on yourself!
On that note, I've rounded up some relaxation tips that should help even the most tightly wound mamas chill out a bit...
1. Take a nice warm bath...It's so simple, yet so good. Banish the family from your oasis, light some candles and just, you guessed it, RELAX! You'll ease your tired muscles while easing your overworked mind at the same time. I try to do this at least once a week. I can't promise that your loves ones will abide by the no fly zone, but we can dare to dream right?

2. Get a massage...I had no idea how much regular massages would change my life. I feel better physically AND mentally.

3. Try out a new to you spa service...I recently had the chance to experience BREATHE Easy's Dry Salt Therapy. Essentially, you are taken into a room that almost looks like a beach. Beautiful pink Himalayn salt covers the floor. You sink you toes into it and lie back and relax while inhaling air that is permeated with healing salt. Salt therapy is great for those with conditions like allergies, eczema or even someone that feels like they're coming down with a cold. Health benefits aside, you don't have to twist this girl's arm to relax in a quiet room for half an hour. Haha!
