Self Care Resources for Busy Moms
At this point, we know that self care isn’t just taking a shower or getting an extra twenty minutes of sleep in the morning.
Self care needs to be a deliberate choice you make for yourself. For some, self care might be getting their nails done. For someone else, self care is booking a solo weekend retreat at their favorite vacation spot.
We know that for busy moms, self care comes in all shapes and sizes, so we’ve rounded up more than fifteen resources to inspire you on your own self care journey!

Understand How Your Home Influences You
Home Functionality Coaching with Kristina Browning
Did you know that one of the most wonderful things you can do for yourself is to live in a space that encourages the version of yourself that you want to become?
Research shows that the creative process in us all is basically the same: generating ideas, evaluating them and executing them, with many creative sparks over time.
One of the best gifts you can give yourself is pinpointing the activity that you crave or love, and then go about setting up a space in your home to support that.
Your house is more than a bed and bathroom count, it’s the framework for your life and being thoughtful about how it functions is a great act of self-care so that every day is just that much more fulfilling.

Take Control of Your Finances
Money coaching from Colleen Salchow
Learning how to confidently fund future goals is an empowering and healthy habit. Clients learn how to create unique monthly budgets that are designed as a map for their money.
Life is unpredictable, and when individuals know where their money is they are better prepared to handle unexpected expenses. Studies have shown that budgeting reduces stress and anxiety, and therefore learning how to track everyday purchases is a form of self care.

Neurofeedback from Beaverton Neurofeedback
Did you know that Highly sensitive people (HSPs) are thought to make up roughly 15% to 20% of the population?
By practicing mindfulness and meditation, HSPs can process and recover from what they take in. Try to do a “body scan” by lying down, then paying attention to your energy from the feet up.
A highly sensitive nervous system can benefit from neurofeedback training, which measures a person’s brain waves and provides them with a feedback signal to help the brain function more efficiently. With neurofeedback training, HSPs can feel calm and regulated in response to overwhelming stimuli.
