People go out of their way every Mother’s Day to buy flowers, cakes and prepare dates for their very own mom. This day is truly the perfect time to show appreciation for the most important woman in your life. On the other hand, what do you do if you are the mother? Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to not do the usual; on this day the best way to celebrate is to take full advantage of the occasion.
SLEEP IN AND STAY IN BED
Depending on how old your kids are and who’s around to fill in for you, reward yourself by sleeping in at least today. As a mother, you’re most likely obligated to wake up before everyone else in the house. and in many cases, even before the sun itself. So, just this once, get some extra sleep, stay in bed a little longer, and enjoy some much-needed rest.
HAVE YOUR BREAKFAST SERVED
You can ask your children or husband to serve you breakfast in the bed. If you’re lucky, they may even do it as a surprise. If not, tell them to fend for themselves as you go to a nearby cafe and spend the morning peacefully sipping on your beverage of choice. The idea is to get some alone time and not have to worry about your daily chores.
Wear Whatever You Want
Whether you’re spending your day staying in or going out, wear whatever makes you feel happy. If you’re craving for comfort, snuggle into your pajamas, cuddle under a blanket while reading a book or watching your favorite movie. Or, if you so feel, wear the nicest clothes you own (the ones you never cut the tags off) and go out with a friend. While doing something that will get you out of your routine can sometimes be intimidating, remember to let yourself enjoy the day.
The spa is the ultimate relaxation trip for any mother. This Mother's Day, before the day ends, reward yourself with a few hours at the spa. If you don’t feel like going out of your house, but crave a massage, you can call in for a session at home. Not only are you helping your body relax, but the fragrant scent of the massage oils will also calm your mind.
HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS
Lastly, don't put pressure on yourself and others with high expectations this Mother’s Day, you will be easily disappointed. The ideal would be to have no expectations, especially from others. The most disappointing part of any Mother’s Day is expecting something but realizing a completely different turn of events took place instead. Yes, this is your day. Yes, you are the queen. Sadly, it doesn’t mean that on this day everything will be perfect, but you will be completely free to do as you please whenever you please. Perfect days don’t always materialize, which is why this next piece of advice is really vital.
MAKE THE TIME AND SPACE FOR YOURSELF
The best way to celebrate your own Mother’s Day, so that it turns out the way you want, is to plan it out yourself. It might seem unnatural, but it honestly makes sense, you should make time for yourself. After all, Mother's Day is is about celebrating and appreciating all Mothers, including yourself! Give yourself some love and appreciation. Don't be so hard on yourself, Mother's Day is the perfect time to look back on all the good, hard work you're doing every day as a parent.
