I am a mom of three very active boys – two of which are twins. I love my life and being a mom is one of the most fulfilling things I have done. My heart is filled with so many happy memories and great wonderful moments of joy that makes being a mom so… well, wonderful! But, let’s face it, it’s a full time job – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – no holidays, no holiday pay and realistically, it really is a 365 day a year job. It can be exhausting and sometimes I feel like I’m not appreciated, the job in itself – while rewarding can take a major toll on any one person and this mom here does it day in and day out. It is so important for moms (anyone for that matter – but this is about moms… lol) to take some time out for ourselves, take care of us and honestly, many of us mommies don’t find the time or just feel guilty for wanting to have a little “me time”. But, we NEED to take the time out for ourselves, to rejuvenate and really just take care of YOU.
I always put my family first and while it’s important… it’s also essential to take the time for ME. Let me clarify a bit… I’m not just talking about treating yourself. That new handbag is definitely a good incentive, but really – I’m talking about really taking care of you, and your well being. After running around like a nut (if you have a busy household as I do – you’ll agree), life can sometimes suck us into a vortex of never ending chores and it takes a toll on your body and mind. Being a mom for anyone is hard work, even for seasoned pros but that doesn’t mean we should neglect the fact that our bodies need to be cared for. Come on now, cooking three meals a day, snacks, cleaning the house, walking and caring for the family pets, being there for the kids when they are sick or sore, being there for the hubby after a rough day at work or being a nurse and up all night tending the ill, it takes a lot out of us… and this is only the stuff I had room to mention.
#Becausemoments happen every day in our lives – no matter the profession and no matter who you are. Some days I wish I could just soak up some sun and lounge around on the sand or beach, but putting loved ones needs in front of our own can be a challenge. Taking the time to care for ourselves is important and essential to life’s balance and our overall well-being. I love my family and love being a mom, but if I don’t take the time to really take time for myself and remember complete body care, I would just be crazy. Don’t get me wrong – I love my husband and my kids, they are MY WHOLE WORLD… but I need some total body care for those “because moments”.
So what do I mean by Total Body Care and how can I get some?
Total Body Care is where we pause during the daily grind to check-in and tune up. Massage Envy is a great place that is dedicated to helping their members and guests to achieve Total Body Care. They believe total body care is an integral part of everyone’s wellness journey – because treating your body well shouldn’t be a luxury. As a leader in providing accessible massage and skin care services, Massage Envy is there to help you manage this thing we call living.
With the holidays here, because moments happen every single day… whether it’s running late to work (or school) or burning Thanksgiving Dinner (or in my case – planning a holiday luncheon spread for an army), life can be touch. Our bodies work hard for us and Massage Envy is here to help take care of you through every ache, pain and stress we experience.
These four people in my life are my everything, so taking care of them requires my body to be in tip top shape from head to toe. While being the mom and wife in the family can be hard work and really take a beating on my body – I know that Massage Envy is here to help take care of me through every ache, pain and stress. When you have those #becausemoments, stop in and take a look at all that Massage Envy has to offer to help your body and well-being.
Taking care of ourselves is important for our body, soul and mind no matter what your because moment is. We need to know when our body just needs a little pause from the daily grind for a tune up. What about you… what are your #becausemoments?

“This post was sponsored by RoC® Skincare as part of a Blog Blast for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.”With the new year just a short while away (my gosh where has the year gone), I’m always taking steps in my life to vow for difference and change. This year, I’m vowing to make 2016 about Aging Beautifully! Let’s face it, I know I’m not getting any younger and the fountain of youth, well – as much as we would love to believe it is real – I haven’t seen it with my own two eyes. Myth? Legend? I’m really not sure, but I know I must take action and take care of my skin myself. This year I’m taking the RoC® RETINOL Resolution.Did you know that Retinol is the #1 dermatologist-recommended cosmetic and anti-aging ingredient that can improve the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles? Retinol is an essential part of the skin care regimen to help collagen-depleted skin. I’ll be turning 36 in a few months and while I have pretty good skin, I’m always looking at products that I know can help me age beautifully and help prevent wrinkles. Healthy skin is important to me, VERY important and as the holidays approach, I want to look and feel great, confident and beautiful.
RoC® RETINOL reduces the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles while working in balance with teh skin’s natural renewal system to improve skin tone and skin firmness. RoC® RETINOL products are packaged in a special aluminum tube that protects the RETINOL from light and air to keep it stable, giving you the best results, now and in the future. I learned that if Retinol is not packaged properly, it can degrade… so RoC® has thought of everything. The RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream contains an exclusive combination of pure retinol and an essential mineral complex that is clinically shown to visibly reduce even deep wrinkles. When the cream is applied, the upper layers of your skin appear firmed, leading to a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
“RoC® RETINOL is up to 2x stronger than imitators *Based on vitro retinol activity in RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream”
So now that I have given you all the information to arm you on your skin care journey, starting now – how’s about making a resolution to turn heads this holiday season by using clinically proven RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. RoC® Skin care is inviting all Women (men come take the pledge too) to get a head start on 2016 and to take the #RocRetinolResolution, encouraging them to make a pledge for visibly smooth wrinkles in just 4 weeks.
