Who says “Spring Break” is just for kids? Give yourself a ‘Mom Break!’


I used to love Spring Break when I was younger. It meant no school for a whole week! We could sleep in or go to the beach, do whatever our little hearts desired. Then I got older, and it meant going out to parties with my friends. Hitting up the beach and the bars.

Now I’m a mom and going back to school right now. The university I’m at canceled Spring Break for pandemic reasons, so I will be having midterms instead. Boo.

But I was thinking to myself that it doesn’t matter whether or not I got a designated week off. Sure, when I was younger, it was fun, but now, I’ve got responsibilities. I’ve got my daughter and my husband and school. I realized, though, that if I am tired or overwhelmed, I can take a break anytime.


It might take a little time to organize your schedule, but it will be worth it. Take a break for yourself. For your mental/emotional health. Give yourself the gift of a ‘Mom Break.’

The laundry and dishes will always be waiting for you, but you come first. If you are not taken care of, then what? You deserve it. Taking a little time for yourself is not selfish; it is being proactive. You want to be your best self for you and your family.

I’m not saying you have to go on a week-long vacation (although that sounds nice).
