Moms are natural nurturers, but often feel guilty about putting themselves first. Yet mothers who practice self-care are happier, healthier, and better able to care for others.
Try integrating these easy tips into your daily routine for just one week and see for yourself!
1. Slow down. Be mindful. Do one thing at a time. Remember to build rest breaks into your day.
2. Do what brings you joy! Whether it’s a cup of Earl Grey in the morning, a secret stash of chocolate, walking barefoot outside, or a pedicure for sparkly toes.
3. Tend to your mental and physical health. Find 15 minutes a day to exercise. Pray or meditate. Make regular chiropractor or massage appointments.
4. Stay connected. You may not be a social butterfly, but it’s important to not let yourself become isolated. Share the struggles and joys of motherhood with a mommy group. Make play dates. Join a book club or have a Mom’s Night Out.
5. Count your blessings. Parenting is hard, so focusing on those small, precious moments helps. Keep a gratitude journal to uplift you on tough days.
We at Zagorska Oasis Spa wish all the moms out there a Happy Mother’s Day, and to show our appreciation, we are donating 5% of all Mother’s Day package sales to Magdalene Home.

This Fresh Strawberry Cake is perfect for St. Valentine's Day!

Baby, it's cold outside! Cozy up with a glass of hot mulled wine.My first taste...I was working in corporate headquarters for a Fortune 500 company in Pennsylvania.

“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.” ― David MarnetI got up early and began baking, even before my almost-15 year old son was awake. The sun was still low in the sky, streaming into my kitchen to rest on just-rolled dough.Some say pie-making is becoming a lost art. It [...]

I want to share one of my favorite treats that just makes life a little bit better: Turmeric Milk.

There have been thousands [...]
I have loved Autumn since childhood. I was one of those weird kids that enjoyed going back to school every September, so much so that I could never sleep the night before the first day of school out of joyful anticipation, so maybe that was why I got excited when the air became chilly and [...]
