When it comes to taking some time out for ourselves, a lot of us are hesitant to do so. However, it really is important to give your mind and body some time to relax.
If you are wondering what the best methods of relaxation for busy mums. Below is a list of tips and ideas for relaxing and unwinding, give these a try, and I promise that you’ll feel calmer and more in control.
Start your day with yoga:

Get yourself a relaxing bubble bath:
Fill the tub with water, add some bubble bath or a few drops of lavender oil – lavender helps the body to relax and unwind. You could also dot some candles or flameless candles about, to help set the mood and make the room feel more relaxing.
Use nap time to rest and refuel:
Take some time out to take out in the hours to the day to take a few mini naps. Aim to take at least 15-minutes out at nap time to sit down with a cup of warm tea and play along a few online games such poker or bingo games. Even a few minutes of alone time should make you feel calmer and more relaxed.
Spend time with your Child:
Take a break from parenting and spend some real time with your child. Abandon yourself completely to the play with them without a deadline or time line or goal.
