This New Year I’m talking all about Self-Care as a mum and how important it is to take that time for us. Every week I’ll be bringing you a new guest blog post with some top tips and hopefully throughout the next few months we’ll have put together an amazing list of different ideas for self-care.

This week is Cassie Mather-Reid.

Tell us a bit about yourself - who you are, what you do and a bit about your family:

I’m a mummy of beautiful identical twin girls. My husband works away a lot so we are often an all girl household. I changed my career at the end of 2017 and I now teach Yoga full time. I’m self employed trying to build my business and balance my home life. Some days better than others.

What do you do for self-care as a mum and how do you make time for self-care?

I try and get my nails and toes done every month Ian and that’s about it. My hair is every few months if I can fit it in or when it’s desperate. Having an active job I should look after my body and health more but the mummy guilt weighs heavy and I end up last on the list. I do however try and have some sort of body maintenance like Kore therapy or more recently iced tried cupping, every couple of months.

What are your three top tips for self-care for mums?

  1. Try and make time for you

  2. Self care can be reading a book with a hot cup of something 

  3. It doesn’t have to always be a big gesture

Are there any products/businesses/podcasts ect that you would recommend for self-care?

  1. I love visiting Balanced serenity for body maintenance

  2. Beauty by Chloe for my nails and lashes when I can

  3. Tropic are a staple for me
