In the Philippines, Mother's day is celebrated every second Sunday of May. For this year it will be on May 13 ❤
Mother's day is a celebration to honor the fabulous women who brought forth God's children into this world, the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
These fab women have a mile-long to-do list, and by default, they often put themselves at the bottom of the list. Sometimes, they don't even make the list at all. Most moms feel this damned-if-I-do, damned-if-I don't pressure relating to their decision to work or stay home, and almost all mothers, regardless of work status, struggle with feelings of guilt when they take time away from their children to practice self-care AKA self- love.
Dear Moms, the moment you become a mother and commit to caring for your child, set an intention for yourself: I will honor and respect myself by regularly taking care of my needs. This will make me happier and better able to care for my family. As moms, we have an enormous opportunity to set a great example for our children on how to be kind to ourselves, and in turn, how to be kind to others. As the saying goes, we can't pour from an empty cup. Easier said than done, right?
But mga nanay (moms), it's time to put self-love on your to-do list! You can't neglect self-care. And finding time to exercise is one of them as it will benefit not only you, but your kids and your family as well.
Here are 8 reasons why you need to make it a priority and fit exercise into your schedule.
✔ will make you feel stronger and more confident
✔ helps you de-stress
✔ will lift your mood and help you combat depression and anxiety
✔ will reshape your body and help your clothes fit better
✔ will give you the energy boosts you need to make it through your busy day
✔ makes you a good example to your kids
✔ allows you to eat more food 😍
✔ because YOU need to take of YOU (yourself) so that you can take care of those you love
And because I want every mom to be fit, fab, healthy, happy and sane, Curves Magnolia and Made It Through Mum will be throwing a giveaway! This is to show our love and care to mothers who tirelessly love and care for their children/family.
