After seven kids, I’ve pretty much mastered the art of multitasking. On most days, I’d like to think I have it all together, but one thing I’ve learned more recently is the importance of self-care. I was always able to do quite a bit and not require much more than a couple of hours of sleep. While working full-time from work at home now, I have proven to myself over and over again that I function so much better when I take a little time for myself.

I’m just like most moms, so I don’t have much time on hands. After having seven kids, I’ve finally found what works for me. It doesn’t require a big day at the spa and I don’t even have to actually leave the house, all I need is a little peace and a few of my favorite beauty products. Scroll down to read the three ways I find time for me including with AVEENO® products at Walmart.

1. Learn to say no. Busy moms are programmed to say yes and figure out a way to just get it done. Saying no has opened my eyes to only allow the things that are important and bring me joy into my life, and that has giving me back some much-needed time for not only for myself, but more importantly my family.

2. Maximize your time and use products that make it easy to do so. For me to feel and look pulled together, I need to have three things done: my nails have to either have a mani or at least be neat and trimmed, my hair has to be down with a brush run through it, and my skin has to look refreshed. For those things, I depend on products like fast dry nail polishes and AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner (both formulas are effective at removing impurities and renewing hair to its most balanced state with each wash and they’re safe for color treated hair) and AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® 60 SECOND IN-SHOWER FACIAL (a non-cosmogenic formula that I buy at Walmart and a  total game changer).

  1. Wake up earlier. I wasn’t a big believer in waking up before the kids until I had Lauren. Believe it or not, I found that now I actually have more time to myself. I put my makeup on and have breakfast without any interruptions. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, even catch up on some reading or TV shows too.

  1. I am definitely an early riser for this reason. I’m naturally a night owl, but that’s become more difficult as a parent. So now, I have had to switch to rising early. lol

  2. Most moms I know become early risers just to get some time to themselves. It’s a must when you’re a parent I think. You need some time for you!

  3. Amazing how much “saying no” empowers your self-care. Waking up earlier for sure helps so much getting things done, and you’re actually more productive in the early morning hours.
    Thanks for sharing these new sulfate-free shampoos.

  4. Aww, you are totally right about #1! I know so many people (mamas and not) who just CAN’T. SAY. NO. to anyone or anything. I’ve learned that saying “no” to things I’m not passionate about a) frees me up to say “yes” to the things I AM passionate about (e.g. momming), and b) gives someone else the opportunity to discover their passion in that project that I know just isn’t the best fit for me 🙂
