“The airlines tell us to ‘put your oxygen mask on first before assisting others’ because we are no good to anyone if we have passed out,” says Dr. Lombardo. “Same goes if you are overwhelmed with stress. Taking time for yourself will help you be happier, have less stress, be healthier and be a much better mother!”

Ask yourself what you loved to do pre-baby: dance, hike, draw, bake, scrapbook, sing. Schedule some regular time on the calendar to engage in activities that help you remember who you are and what make you come alive, says Renee Trudeau, life coach and author of The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal: How to Reclaim, Rejuvenate and Re-Balance Your Life. “Not only will you feel more relaxed, patient and generous towards others after participating in these self-care activities, you’ll realize your guilt is unjustified!”

Missy Cheatham, a mom of three from Colleyville, TX, makes sure to squeeze in some workout time for herself. “I enjoy running, and I sometimes have to do it at night after the kids are asleep, or my husband and I have to take turns so that one of us can work out and one of us can watch the kiddos. I have to work out. It makes me feel better about myself and gives me a great outlet for stress, both of which make me a much better mom to my kids.”

No matter what activity you choose, just be sure that it’s something you enjoy–running to Target to pick up diapers doesn’t count.
