Health Tip: Moms, Make Time for Yourself

(HealthDay News) -- Keeping yourself healthier has benefits that extend to the entire family.

The American Council on Exercise recommends:

  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet, drink plenty of water and find time to exercise regularly.
  • Take some time for yourself each day.
  • Schedule regular date nights to reconnect with your partner. Make time to visit with friends and enjoy time outside of being a mom.
  • Make sure you laugh every day!
  • Treat yourself to a massage to help release hormones that boost mood.
  • Keep a daily journal that includes things you are thankful for.
