Why Is Self-Care So Hard for Moms?

July 6, 2020

#047: As moms, we have a lot on our plate. The thought of prioritizing self-care, let alone going to the bathroom in peace, is laughable at times. We cannot thrive when we can’t take care of ourselves. We can’t teach our kids how to honor their own needs when we don’t know how to make space for our own. 

That’s why in today’s episode, we’re going to talk about why self-care is so hard for moms. In preparation for recording this episode, I posted on Instagram and in our Mamas Talk Money Facebook group asking moms why self-care is hard for them, and I want to share with you their responses, as well as give you 3 strategies that I think will help you get better at prioritizing your own self-care.
