Treat Your Self! Exeter, PA pregnant or new moms…this is why self-care is so important to your well-being!

Getting pampered…we all know it feels good, but did you know it's also important for your overall well-being?

Last week I had the chance to sit down with Olivia from Luxe Cosmetic Studio in Exeter Pa and discuss self-care and just why it is so important.

We got to talk about why not only it makes us feel beautiful but the importance of it on our mental and physical well-being.

As moms we tend to always put our family and children first. But when we do that, we are not only hurting ourselves, but also… we can’t be as happy and present for our family. You know the saying you can’t fill someone else's cup when yours is empty. 

And this was something that Olivia mentioned she just went through “I was just going through the motions, and I forgot to be a woman” and “as women we tend to sacrifice ourselves”. Are you guilty of this? I know I am.

It is so important for women, and especially mothers to incorporate self-care into your routine. This can lead to positive effects on your overall health and well-being, as well as your self-esteem.

In fact, women that pamper themselves experience fewer negative emotions and less depression, a study from Carnegie Mellon University revealed.

So, make sure you are getting out of the house to really take time for you! And mom’s “an uninterrupted shower is not a pamper” Olivia mentioned (I think most of us are guilty of thinking this at one point).

Also taking that time for yourself to relax will increase your happiness, enhance your mood and help you be more mindful. This way you are able to show up for your family with more kindness and love. Olivia mentions “I talk to women all day long and the biggest thing we can do is give ourselves a break”.

By taking a break you will also decrease your stress levels which could help with keeping down your blood pressure. And this is something that is especially recommended for pregnant women. Keeping stress levels down can also ward off heart disease and cancer.

Lastly but super important, pampering yourself will enhance your self-esteem. When you feel amazing you are unstoppable! Olivia states “that's why we are here, we're here to make women feel beautiful and powerful. And that’s why we choose this industry because we saw a need to help women feel better about themselves."
