Real Life Self Care from Mom of Five with Mimi Marie
As a mom of five, you would have figured that Mimi already has soooo much on her plate. Self-care almost seems impossible, but she is able to do so anyway. She is relax, happy, and thriving. What’s her secret?
Achieving the Peace Mindset
When Marie hit rock bottom, she knew something had to change. And the first thing that she did to move forward? She let go.
It’s important to realize that as moms, we are not meant to manage all the things that are weighing us down. We need to let some of our burdens (like physical stuff, relationships, unnecessary tasks, work/study, etc) go and prioritize our needs at the moment.
I see so many moms put themselves second before their loved ones. But that is actually one of the biggest motherhood mistakes! What kind of love, or care can we give everyone else when we’re not coming from a happy, healthy, and self-accepting place? It’s important that we are at peace with ourselves so we can give a more fulfilling kind of love to everyone else (and to avoid blowing up on our kids!)
In this episode, Mimi and I share some practical self-care tips for super busy moms who want to live a more peaceful and abundant life.

“Be mindful of your situation. You will realize that you’re doing more than enough.” -Mimi Marie
Self-care is not just a massage, or pedicure and all that. It can also be sitting down and just being mindful of the present moment. It is not easy, and it may take a while, but having that peaceful mindset makes a lot of difference.
