There you are looking in the mirror. You see tired eyes, hair in a ponytail, and your most comfy sweatsuit staring back at you. Your first thought is, wow I could use some help.
Then you think to yourself, it’s not that bad I have two beautiful children and they fill me with so much joy so I guess I look pretty good considering. Considering what, do you have to give up on feeling sexy if you are a mom? The answer is NO!
Moms tend to put their needs and desires behind everyone else’s. They have a pretty packed schedule that looks something like this. They feed the kids, dress the kids, do the laundry, cook dinner, pick the kids up, do the dishes, and get the kids ready for bed.
When is there time to take care of yourself? At the end of the day you may just be happy you made it to bed instead of just falling asleep on the couch. You think to yourself that if it was date night you may put on a pretty outfit and feel a little sexier.
Besides, you’re a mom; you aren’t supposed to feel sexy. Stop right there. Sexiness is a state of mind. It comes from within. You should feel sexy all the time!
The number one rule for feeling sexy is to believe you are sexy. Sexiness is when you can embrace the woman in you. It is when you love the wonderful gifts your body has to offer.
You may want to change certain things about your body, but remember it is uniquely yours. Being grateful for legs to walk or a great smile is part of being sexy.
Second rule for feeling sexy is to exercise. You may say you hate exercising but there are not many people out there that don’t feel better after they exercise. Exercise releases natural endorphins in your brain. A natural sexy drug, if you will.
Any kind of exercise counts. It can be a brisk walk or a hard run. You chose what makes you feel good, just move!
Third rule for feeling sexy is to eat healthy foods. Eating well means eating foods that nourish the body. They will help you feel alive and have more energy. Your skin and your mood will benefit as well.
Eating lots of greens and protein will help with any bloating. Food is our life line, make sure it is giving you the energy you need for the day.
Forth rule for feeling sexy is to pamper yourself. Schedule some extra time to get your nails done. Get a pedicure or a massage. Let someone fuss over you. It is time to honor yourself and all you do.
If these things don’t appeal to you then you can do something that allows you to have alone time. Reading a good book at a park or listening to some new great music is a way to pamper yourself as well. Just schedule the time and make it all yours!
Fifth rule for feeling sexy is to wear fun undergarments. Wearing undergarments under your normal clothing will put a little spring in your step or at least a little more of a smile on your face.
The garments can be as simple as a matching bra and underwear set or it can be as elaborate as a revealing teddy. You make the call on what feels comfortable. The key is to do this on a normal day of the week, not just date night. Get in touch with your feminine side, you will love it!
Finally the last rule for feeling sexy that will be discussed is giving yourself downtime. You need to rejuvenate. Take a bath and soak with some candles and then get to bed early. Feeling rested is one of the major keys of feeling sexy. Be sure to get plenty of sleep. In case you have a new baby, take a nap when the baby is napping, the laundry can wait!
