5 Ways to Relax Before Bed

Everyone, moms especially, deserve a chance to relax before falling down in bed after a busy and exhausting day!  Whether one kid or five kids, it seems like there is never enough time.  That being said, taking care of yourself is so important!  How can we be happy moms when we are constantly stressed and overwhelmed.  So below are five ideas that take little time and money to help you relax and unwind.

  1. Take a bath – this is my favorite way to relax! Add some lavender bath salts and light a candle and it’ll melt my worries away. I will be introducing my homemade lavender bath salts very soon so please look for an announcement on that!  If you can think of any other varieties you would be interested in please contact me!Farmhouse Relaxing bath

  2. Read a book – I didn’t read as much when my daughter was young but have recently started enjoying it again. I love reading happy romance novels. I am such a sucker for fairy tale endings!  I typically have quite a few books next to me on the couch.  I go between fiction books and topics I have researched.Farmhouse Relaxing reading

  3. Drink a glass of wine – my favorite is pink moscato. I don’t drink it very often so when I do it feels like a special occasion.  You can get very tasty bottles of wine for less than $10.  Pick them up while on sale and save them for a day when you really need to unwind.Farmhouse Relaxing wine

  4. Meditate – this is something that I would like to explore more. It is so hard to quiet my mind. It is always racing with a millions thoughts – I am a mom after all! Even two minutes of sitting in complete silence would probably help to relax me.Farmhouse Relaxing meditate

  5. Get a quick massage – if you have a significant other this is really easy. Take turns or offer to do some chore for your significant other for just a little massage. I love to get my head rubbed. It almost relaxes me just as much as a back rub.Farmhouse Relaxing Massage

Sometimes I like to combine different ways of relaxing, like drinking a glass of wine while reading or taking a bath while reading, but whatever is easiest for you is what I want you to do.  Try to implement two of these ideas this week and see how it makes you feel.

Relaxing: Weekend Vibes

Do you think of the weekend as a to do list without even a second to breathe or do you treat it like a chance to recharge your batteries? Relaxing is so important!


Getting stuff done is important of course, we all have grown up responsibilities, but at the same time many of us need to slow down. I urge you to find something you enjoy this weekend and spend a few minutes doing it. If it’s not too hot, I may relax in my hammock for a bit or maybe take a hot relaxing bath. Who knows? But I will definitely take some time off so I am ready for the coming week!


I would also love to hear how you, as a busy mom relaxes.  I am always looking for more easy ways to add relaxation to my busy days!

My Little Piece of Heaven


This is my happy place in my back yard. Especially when the sun starts to set and the air cools. I can see our whole big backyard lit up with fireflies and stare up into the sky.


Mamas, I hope you have a place like this in your backyard to relax. When I bought a house earlier this year this is what I wanted to add to our space. Even if I only get to lay there for 5 minutes before my daughter jumps in with me, it’s still 5 minutes to clear my mind before moving on to the next thing.


Take the time to find that one thing that helps you relax and recharge your batteries. And then add it to your calendar for this week.
