Being a mom is a demanding job. Thanks to the new trend of momcation, moms get to travel with her close friends without hubby and the children.
Here are 5 reasons you may need a momcation:
It’s good for your health: The cornerstones of a healthy life are good nutrition, rest and exercise. Going away on your own (or with a group of other moms) means you can reclaim your health: whether that means cooking healthy meals at your holiday house, eating at a restaurant without interruptions, getting a full night’s sleep, or taking time to exercise.
It allows you to reconnect with friends: Having children means less time to bond with your girlfriends. A trip away together is an ideal chance to reconnect with your old friends, have long catch-ups that may be years overdue, and remind yourself that you’re not alone in any parenting struggles.
You can find yourself again: As moms, your child always gets priority, and you rarely have time to do what makes you happy. “Me time” is crucial for your mental health: it refreshes your mind and spirit, helps you to rebalance your outlook on life and gives you more inspiration to pursue your talents and hobbies. Going away to another location is the perfect way to “enforce” this connection with yourself again, where you don’t have to think about others – something you may not have had the luxury of doing for years.
