10-Minute Acts of Self-Love for Busy Mums

A few months ago I was challenged to think about things I could do for myself so I felt loved, nurtured and like my old self again. I was in the middle of renovating my house, studying, starting a business, looking after my family and I was giving it my all. I barely had time to even think about how I was feeling, what I looked like or what others even thought. Maybe some of you could feel like you are in the same boat. So here are 10-Minute acts of self-love for busy Mums.

Slowly I reintroduced a few simple acts of self-love to boost me emotionally and a few physically. I decided that 10-minutes was all that I could probably muster with two children under my feet. At first, I was unsure if I could even tackle some of the tasks I had set myself. I wrote a list of 30 things I could do to love myself and below are my top ten and in no particular order.

I hope that a few of these spark some ideas for you to create a little 10-minute window for you to give yourself a little love when you are alone looking after your kids.
