Mother's Day Indulgences Just for Mamas
I'll admit it: I secretly wait for Mother's Day each year. Like other mothers, I love being a mom and wouldn't change my job for the world. OK, so I may reconsider this when my 15-year-old son is in the middle of a terrible teen outburst but only for a split second.
Seriously, though, being a mother is one of the toughest gigs around. We moms work 24 hours on call without pay. We tactfully answer questions at a rapid-fire pace. We aid in the creation of dioramas and book reports, and we must go from 0 to 60 at a moment's notice. If we're lucky, we may get an unsolicited hug or wet kiss on the cheek for all our hard work. So that's why I had to create this post- Mother's Day Indulgences Just for Mamas.
Bottom line when Mother's Day rolls around, we ought to indulge ourselves “ hey, we deserve it!” and with a minimum amount of coercion, hopefully our kids will be happy to come along for the ride. So for all you mamas out there who have been in the trenches for many years and for those of you starting out I'm sharing Mother's Day Indulgences Just for Mamas

And once you've gifted yourself what about trying to learn a new skill?
Take a YOGA, BODY AWARENESS, QI GONG CLASSES
Find a core-strength yoga class, which is a fusion of traditional vinyasa, which connects the mind and body through the breath during yoga postures and aerobic movements that are designed to strengthen muscle tone. The body awareness classes teach movements to energize and stretch the body and release toxins as well as breathing and relaxation exercises. Qi Gong, considered the Mother of Tai Chi, is an internal meditative practice.
Yoga is beneficial to moms because it focuses on strengthening one's core, getting the mid-section back in shape while creating a feeling of balance. Body awareness classes help moms get to know their body through understanding proper form and its innate ability to heal itself. Qi Gong's intentional movements and breathing techniques help with mom's overall well-being.
In one hour, you can strengthen your immune system, naturally define your physique and experience a mini vacation that transcends you into a more peaceful life.
At this class, moms can learn fundamental techniques to aid them in exploring their creativity beyond helping their kids with book reports or coloring with crayons, through their own hand-built pottery and sculpture. An art class is a wonderful outlet, an intimate environment with plenty of one-on-one attention (and no kids). If clay is not your thing, indulge in stained glass and mosaic class, techniques collage and altered books and painting from perception.
Bottom line…Treat yourself
When all else fails get a bottle of champage, chill it and pour yourself a FLUTE!
Bottom line is this: Taking time for one's self is just as important as a healthy meal and exercise and every mom should squeeze in one of these treats!
