Being a single mom means you are out there for your family. Your days are often filled with strength, love, and resilience. However, it can also be incredibly challenging. You may find it hard to have “me time,” leaving you with little self-care.
You might keep wondering if you need to slow down a bit to see how you feel. Or take enough time for yourself. Amid the daily hustle and bustle, it’s good and important to prioritize your health, right? Of course!
We get you and understand how you feel. While it might be difficult to have a whole day to yourself, organize your thoughts, or just know where to start, possessing a self-care journal isn’t such a bad idea.
Dear Self: How Do You Feel?
Opening up to a space can be so relieving and de-stressing quite alright. But not just that, it’ll help in revealing how you feel. When was the last time you sat down and truly took stock of your emotions? As a single mom, life’s demands can keep you constantly on the move, leaving little room for self-reflection.
You can do that here- reflect. We’re going to give you the chance to pause, breathe, and connect with your inner self. Because understanding your feelings is the first step in the journey of self-care.
As you put pen to paper, you may uncover a mix of emotions, so write it all out; your worries, fears, and joy.
Slots in the Journal
Now that we’ve embarked on this self-discovery and emotional expression, it’s time to explore other practical sides of your self-care journal. Within these pages, you’ll find designated slots, carefully designed to help you prioritize your well-being as a single mom. To name a few slots:
1. Daily Self-Check
Start each day with a moment of reflection. Write down how you’re feeling, any worries or joys that are on your mind, and a small affirmation to set the tone for the day. These daily check-ins will help you stay in touch with your emotions and intentions.
2. Goal Setting
Your self-care journey begins with setting clear, achievable goals. Use this section to outline what you want to accomplish, both in terms of personal growth and nurturing your well-being. Remember, even small goals can lead to significant changes over time.
3. Self-Care Activities
Here, you have space to plan and track your self-care activities. Whether it’s scheduling a yoga session, a quiet evening with a book, or a chat with a friend, this section will help you ensure you make time for yourself.
In the pages of your self-care journal, you’ll also see places where you can write out healthy habits. Why habits? Because they are the building blocks of your daily life, and by cultivating positive ones, you can significantly enhance your well-being as a single mom.
Now, let’s sprinkle some words of encouragement throughout your journal to uplift your spirits on this journey:
“It will be okay.”
“One strong mama.”
“I can do difficult things.”
“I can do this.”
Good luck! We’re rooting for you!
