I confess, I am one of those moms. You know the type: schedules everything, forgets to wash her hair for a week, keeps running around making sure everything is done and takes care of everyone but herself. Despite the fact that I tell all my friends, take care of you first, I just don’t do it. It started to feel like I only knew how to be a mom or an entrepreneur, and completely forgot what it feels like just to be a woman. Taking care of me would have probably helped remedy that, but I just didn’t listen…until I had to.
Over the past year, my body started giving me signs that things were changing. Signs that I ignored. I was too consumed with everything except my body. I was experiencing high stress, a loss of a family member and eventually, was diagnosed with a thyroid issue that left me fatigued most of the time. After talking to my friends, I realized, I wasn’t alone. Women can have it all, but we need to remember ways to reconnect with our selves, not just the boss, the mom, the scheduler. I decided it was time that I pay attention to what I needed and came up with a few easy ways to connect with me, the woman, once more, and I get to share them with you.
Spa Day- A few hours of massage, facial and relaxing in one of my favorite spas makes me feel like a QUEEN! How much more feminine can you get?
Aromatherapy- Shop for your favorite candles and surround yourself with it in a quiet room for a few minutes. I love the scent of jasmine- it’s feminine, sensual and so relaxing!
Date yourself- This is an easy one, and something we should all do at least once. Take yourself out for dinner and a movie. No arguing over where you want to go, just pick your favorite spot, a movie you want to see and enjoy!
Sleep- Once a month, I tell my husband to pretend I am not home, and just let me sleep in. I usually only sleep in for an hour, but oh man, is it glorious.
Romantic Getaway- My husband has been planning a romantic vacation for us. Well, staycation…and more like a daycation, because, well, LIFE! But regardless, he knew I needed to relax and it was time to connect.
With Vagisil, I don’t have to worry about all the crazy changes in my life affecting me, especially when I am trying to reconnect with myself and my husband. Vagisil ProHydrate is a vaginal moisturizer used to relieve dryness anytime or in advance of intimacy. It feels like my own moisture and it is clinically & gynecologist tested, with no added perfumes, dyes, preservatives, or estrogen, it works with your body’s natural lubrication to let you feel like yourself again!
