Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Whether you’re a mom brainstorming relaxing Mother’s Day activities for yourself, or someone looking for fun ways to celebrate and treat Mom this year, we’ve got five ways to celebrate the healthiest Mother’s Day ever!
Indulge in a Guilt-Free Breakfast
Starting any day off right includes a nutritious, nourishing breakfast. Not only does a healthy breakfast really jump start your day, but it also keeps you going strong until the next meal, which is especially important for those busy moms out there. Make the most of your Mother’s Day breakfast by getting plenty of protein, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables in this morning’s breakfast - you’ll want to be fueled up for all the fun activities to come!

Get Some Exercise
We all know the benefits of exercise - it helps manage and maintain a healthy weight, prevents disease, reduces stress and it feels great! So let’s lace up those trainers or bust out the yoga mat and get a little bit of weekend exercise. Mother’s Day is your day to make time for the things you enjoy (and maybe don’t get to do as often as you like - if you struggle to find time for exercise, check out Marissa Parry’s tips here), including exercise! Whether it's a jog around your favorite park, a scenic hike, a fun new fitness class or a simple yoga flow, use this time to connect with your body - or your mind (try these five-minute meditations) and move!
Learn Something New
Take time today to learn something new! It could be something you’ve been wanting to learn for quite some time, or something completely spur of the moment. Learning new things not only changes your brain chemistry, but it also increases learning speed and may even help to ward off dementia. Try a pottery class, a tennis lesson, an art class - whatever sparks your fancy! You can even bring the kids and your significant other along for some family bonding time.
Hit the Spa
What better day than Mother’s Day to enjoy a trip to the spa? Enjoy a body massage, foot reflexology or facial to help you relax and unwind on your special day. You can even DIY your own spa at home! Soak your cares away in a bubble bath with these DIY lavender bath salts, or try an at-home facial with this skin-repairing two-ingredient honey mask or this simple one-ingredient spa mask.
Enjoy Some “Me” Time
Most importantly, today is about you, Mom, and all that you do for those around you. So make sure to really enjoy some “you” time doing what you love today, and allow yourself to reflect and recharge before you get back to the hustle and bustle being Mom! ❤️
