Introducing My FREE 12 Day Self Care Challenge!

12 Days Self Care Challenge

You guys! I’m so excited to announce that I’m kicking off my FIRST EVER(!) daily challenge!

What’s it all about, you say? Self care! And it couldn’t come at a better time — the lead up to Christmas. 

“A challenge before Christmas? Another thing to add to our to-do list?”

This is a different kind of challenge, I promise.

The holidays are an extremely overwhelming time for Moms. There are Christmas concerts and recitals, parties, gift exchanges, and many — MANY — trips to the mall. Many of us feel overwhelmed, exhausted and frustrated. The ‘to-do’ lists grow longer and longer. We’re up late hours into the night wrapping presents and cleaning the house. We’re skipping meals, sacrificing our sleep, and self care is the LAST thing on our minds.

Sign up here!

That’s why I’ve created the 12 Days of Self Care Challenge. I’m challenging you to take some time for you, Mama, every single dang day up until Christmas day. It’s SO important to take that time to breathe and refresh. This will allow us take a more ‘mindful’ approach to the holiday and focus on the little moments as opposed to what’s outstanding on our ‘to-do’ lists.

Each day for the next 12 days, you’ll receive an e-mail from me outlining the day’s self care ‘task’. I’m asking you to take 10-15 minutes of your day to focus on yourself. I’ll be doing it right along with you. And, I’d invite you to post on Instagram using the hashtag #LM12DaysofSelfCare so we can all support one another.

Remember — take a deep breath, and focus on the moments. Our kids are only little once, and if we can take some time for ourselves, we will be better able to handle whatever life throws our way this holiday season.

Self Care Tips for the “Type A” Mom

self care type a mom

I’m so sorry for my lack of updates. One word: midterms. (TMI: I’m actually writing this post via my iPhone in the bathtub – multitasking for the win!). I’ve been significantly less stressed out this year compared to first year, and I’m not sure that’s a good thing. I attribute it mostly to my spending as little time at the law school as possible to avoid the realization that other Type A law students such as myself are currently experiencing the mental breakdowns I’m inevitably slated for after I get my midterm marks back and realize my nonchalant attitude is getting me nowhere. (Well, it may be saving a few years of my life, but aren’t grades more important, anyway? I kid. Sort of. Unless you ask a law student, who will invariably answer “yes” to that question because we’re all crazy overachievers).
