  • Self Care Ideas for Moms

    Self Care Ideas for Moms | Practical Tips for adding Self Care to your busy life | Everywhere with Ella

    Self Care Ideas for Moms

    As mothers, we are often so busy taking care of our children that we forget to take care of ourselves. Life becomes a never ending cycle of diaper changes, preparing meals, bed time routines and everything that comes in between. It’s so easy to lose yourself in the process and completely burn out! That is why it is so important for moms to add self care into their daily routines. There are so many simple ways you can add self care into your life. Here are my favorite Self Care Ideas for Moms:

    Early Morning Coffee

    Believe it or not, mornings have become one of my favorite times of the day because of this simple self care technique! Waking up a little early for coffee in the morning makes such a huge difference for me. I like to set my alarm for at least 30 minutes before Ella wakes up so I can relax and enjoy my morning coffee. It is so nice to start off my day with some quiet time and it really helps to set a positive tone for the rest of the day.

    Make Mom Friends

    No one understands your crazy, beautiful mess of a life quite like another mom does so making mom friends is so important. Not only is it so awesome for your little one to have friends their age, but it’s so beneficial for mama as well. Having mom friends makes simple things like going to the playground or hanging out at home way more fun. There are so many different ways to meet other moms and all of us would love to meet a new friend.


    Exercising is an excellent self care practice to add into your life. I work out every day and it has become a routine that I really enjoy. Exercising has done so much for me both physically and mentally. Many gyms offer child care which makes going to the gym fun for your little one as well. If you aren’t able to make it to the gym, there are so many work out routines you can do from home. Follow me on Pinterest for all of favorite work out routines!

    Make Time for Your Hobbies

    One of the first things we give up when we become mothers are our hobbies. Making time for hobbies is amazing for self care because you are allowing yourself to do something you enjoy. If you like to cook, then make time to try a new recipe. If you like to paint, then make time to paint! If you don’t have a hobby, that’s totally fine it’s never too late to try something new! Just make time to do something that makes you happy.

    Look Your Best Everyday

    Before I became a mom I would do my make up and get ready every morning. I wouldn’t leave the house unless I looked my best. I didn’t do this to impress others, I did it for myself! It’s so easy to get busy and decide to just stay in lazy clothes all day. This became a bad habit for me. A great way to get out of a bad habit is to replace it with a positive one. I’ve made my habit “wake up and make up.” That doesn’t mean you have to go full glam, a little concealer, mascara and lip gloss go a long way for your self confidence. When you look your best, you feel your best!

    Find Things You Both Enjoy

    As mothers we spend a majority, if not all of our time with our children. A great way to add self care into your busy mom life is to find things both you and your littles one can enjoy together. There are so many activities you can do with your kids that are fun for you as well. Instead of just going to the playground all the time, switch it up and check out a local museum! Try a mommy and me yoga class. Take your little ones to the zoo or a concert. It’s exciting to try new things and see new places.. there are so many options that can make your daily routine more fun.

    Relax Before Bedtime

    Take an hour for yourself after the little ones go to bed. I made a rule very early on that when I am having my me time there is no laundry or chores allowed! My favorite thing to do in the evening is to relax and catch up on the newest episode of my favorite show, and if I’m feeling crazy sometimes I’ll even have a glass of wine!

    Practicing self care as a mom is a necessity. Not only does it benefit you, but it also benefits your children. There are so many different ways your can incorporate self care into your busy life. These are a few ideas that have worked really well in my life and I hope they can inspire you as well.

Chip and Dale and their friends will come directly to your table for a meet and greet while you enjoy your meal.

    Boston Red Sox Fenway Park Tour

    Boston Red Sox Fenway Park Tour

    Fenway Park is one of the most popular destinations for families visiting Boston. Growing up in Massachusetts, I spent a lot of time at Fenway Park and made some of my most cherished childhood memories there. Ever since I became a mom, I have been dying to take Ella on her first trip to Fenway. She was still a little young for a Red Sox game during our trip to Boston so I decided to take her on a Fenway Park tour instead! Here’s everything you need to know about taking your little ones on a Fenway Park Tour:

    Yawkey Way | Fenway Park Tour | Everywhere with Ella

    One of the best ways to experience Fenway Park with kids is by taking them on a Fenway Park tour. Tours are a great option for kids because they give your little ones the feel of Fenway without having to endure a 4 hour baseball game. Ella was one when we went on our tour and it was the perfect way for her to experience the ballpark for the first time. Fenway Park tours are offered year round and range from 15 minutes to 60 minutes in length. Ella and I went on the popular 60 minute Public Tour.

    Our tour began down on the field where a professional photographer took our family photo. I was really excited about this because family photos are my favorite way capture special memories. All moms know that it can be super difficult to get a photo that includes everyone so it was awesome to have a professional photographer available. One of the things I love the most about the photo they took was it was dated. It is really neat to be able to look back on this photo and know exactly when it was taken.

    After having our family photo taken we moved up the stairs where we met with our tour guide. Each tour is led by an experienced tour guide who shares the incredible history of Fenway Park! Did you know Fenway Park is Major League Baseball’s oldest active ball park? Fenway Park is over 100 years old and is actually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.. that means Fenway isn’t going anywhere! It is pretty crazy to think that the ballpark my great grandpa visited years ago will be the exact same ballpark my future great grandchildren visit!

    As the tour guide shares the history of “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark” they take you on a walking tour of Fenway’s famous locations. Some of the most popular locations featured in the Fenway Park tour are Yawkey Way, Pesky’s Pole, the infamous “Red seat” and of course the Green Monster! It is so much fun for kids to explore the ballpark as they learn all about the history that has been made there. Ella loved being able to sit in the old wooden Fenway Park seats. It was so cute watching her look in awe at the ballpark that I love so much! One of our favorite parts of the tour was when we were able to stand on top of the Green Monster. Talk about the perfect view of Fenway Park!

    Fenway Park is such a fun and exciting place for all members of the family to enjoy! Whether you are a die hard baseball fan or simply visiting the Boston area, I highly recommend adding a Fenway Park Tour to your itinerary. Thanks for reading!
