For the love of… YOU!

February 2, 2017

Written by Happy Housewife Tiffany

The Valentine’s Day candy has been on display in the store since January 2 and alas February is here and the day is not far off. I’m sure everyone is thinking about what to do your dh, what cards to get for the children – but what about you? Momma needs some loving too! Unfortunately, unless you make yourself a priority, you’re not going to get it.

Yes, I said it! You need to make yourself a priority. You look and feel like crap because you run around taking care of everyone else except yourself. Sound familar? I know, because I’ve done it also. But not this year. Think about it, if you don’t love and take care of yourself, how can you give more of yourself to your family. You SAY you’re going to get yourself up and dressed with makeup daily and yet everyday – your husband comes home, after a hard day’s work, to you in sweats…again. You try to play it off as if you’ve been cooking and cleaning all day, but we know thats untrue. Every day this month -get up and put some decent clothes on and put on some lipstick – lipgloss at the very least! Then at night – take the makeup OFF. Stop going to bed in your makeup, its bad for your skin and bad for your pillowcase. Drink water, lots of it, every single day. You have no energy and you don’t know why, its because you’re probably dehydrated. Lets start doing things because we love ourselves and we know that we’re better wives, better moms, better women when we take care of US

Need some help figuring out what to do, here are some suggestions:

  • Drink at least 6 glasses of water a day
  • Take a vitamins daily
  • Get completely dressed daily
  • Put on makeup every day (at the very least lipgloss)
  • Walk or exercise at least 15 minutes everyday
  • Moisturize face and body daily
  • Create one new outfit
  • Go to bed a half hour earlier
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • Wear sunscreen
  • Do something new with your hair
  • Clean out your closet, drawers or maybe both

Happy Housewives, do you love you? Enough to take the time to do some or maybe all of these suggestions? Do it for yourself, Do it for your family- Just DO IT!
