    Thanks for all the information. Very helpful – even for just stay at home moms which is really a Busy Work At Home Mom I guess as well. Will be passing this information on. Thanks.

      Thanks, Beth! Stay-at-home moms are definitely busy and need to take time to re-charge, as well. 🙂

    This is all such good information. Self-care is so important. I love the idea of making your spaces look how you want them to. I’m working on making a lovely work space for myself now.

    Great tips Tonya.
    I especially love the one about getting out of the house. The fresh air alone is a game changer for me.

      It’s so hard, now that we’re in the middle of a Minnesota winter. But even if I don’t have any outings planned for the day, running out to the mailbox and breathing in the crisp air feels amazing.

    Great post! Taking time for self-care and focusing on the positive things in my life ate so important! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this!

    Thanks for sharing some great ideas

    Self-Care is important for everyone and your message applies across the board-we cannot take care of others until we have taken care of ourselves.

    • Reply TONYA January 14, 2020 at 1:00 pm

      Yes, exactly. 🙂

    Great ideas! I just started getting my groceries delivered- game changer!!

    • Reply TONYA January 14, 2020 at 1:00 pm

      Isn’t it great?! Grocery delivery saves sooo much time.

    Getting out of the house & meal planning really helps me. I will try some of your other ideas

  • Reply Malia January 14, 2020 at 12:47 pm

    I think the boundaries part is what I struggled with the most. Sticking to working hours and not working when I’m “off the clock” is what I am going to focus on!

    • Reply TONYA January 14, 2020 at 12:59 pm

      It’s a huge struggle here, too!

    Great tips for all working moms. Self-care is essential for keeping us at our best.

    I love #8 Love your space. I am going to create a space I love out of my paper-piled desk. That such a different energy from digging it out from under. Thanks.

    Very important concept, thanks for the post! I’m just focused on the first one for now but it’s working well for me so far.

    • Reply TONYA January 15, 2020 at 11:41 am

      That’s the most important one! I’m glad it’s working for you.

  • Reply Tricia Snow January 14, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    This is great info! Keeping my mindset straight is the most important for me!

  • Reply Shirley January 14, 2020 at 10:49 pm

    Great tip! I can use them as a grandma watching my grandkids. Getting out of the house is what I need to work on. After having the little ones all day I seem to just want to take residence on the couch after they leave. lol I do agree that mind set is very important.

    • Reply TONYA January 15, 2020 at 11:40 am

      I don’t blame you! It’s exhausting, even if the kids leave at the end of the day.

  • Reply Melissa Jones January 14, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    Great tips! I know most of us can use more self-care!

  • Reply Christina Furnival January 14, 2020 at 11:28 pm

    Great tips. It can be so hard to be a full time mom and a work from home mom!

  • Reply Robin Frields January 15, 2020 at 8:39 am

    I’ve always been a huge advocate for self-care. I always thought it made me selfish, but I need to get rid of that guilt because it is healthy!

    • Reply TONYA January 15, 2020 at 11:37 am

      It’s so hard to not feel guilty for doing things that make us healthy/happy, but I think there’s a big difference between being selfish and taking care of ourselves. 🙂

  • Reply Trisha January 15, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    This is such a great reminder for anyone who works from home. My biggest challenge is allocating time for each thing and NOT letting it run over.

    • Reply TONYA January 15, 2020 at 3:07 pm

      It’s SO hard to stop when you really get into whatever it is you’re working on. I struggle with this a lot!

  • Reply Tara January 15, 2020 at 5:06 pm

    I love this! I work from home while raising my kids and it can be tough to set boundaries. This is a great reminder why those boundaries are so important!

  • Reply Jane January 15, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Great reminder not only for work at home moms. I’m a big proponent for self-care and finding time to take care of yourself is paramount.

  • Reply Charlene January 16, 2020 at 12:16 pm

    Self-care can be so hard to invest in but it’s so important. Something I need to focus on more often.

  • Reply Stacey Billingsley January 16, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    Great ideas! I’m a teacher, and I have a family. With extra-curriculars and everything else, it’s hard to find a balance. Sometimes I just have to stop whatever work tasks I’m doing and call it day, although I don’t always have that opportunity if I have to be somewhere. I like the way you suggested to care for ourselves even when we can’t stop what we’re doing. I may go make a hot chocolate right now!

    • Reply TONYA January 17, 2020 at 10:59 am

      I like that idea!

  • Reply Robin @ Reinventing Robin January 17, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    Wonderful advice! I really hadn’t thought of doing some self-care while working- we just got a leg massager, so I will certainly take advantage of that! Thanks!

  • Reply Michele January 18, 2020 at 8:18 pm

    I really need to work on all of the above! I’m guilty of all of the wrong things to do. Great share.

  • Reply T.M. Brown January 19, 2020 at 8:44 pm

    Ah – self-care….not my strong point. LOL. Great list of things to keep in mind!!!!

  • Reply Brianna January 19, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    Thank you for these tips! I work at home, and luckily my mom watches my kids so I can get it done. I think it is important to balance family and work and to take care of yourself along the way. Thank you for this post

  • Reply Cindy January 19, 2020 at 11:40 pm

    These are great suggestions. Self care is so important. We can’t care for anyone else if we feel empty or overwhelmed.

  • Reply Lisa January 22, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    great list! I agree with getting out of the house.
