It’s no secret that moms are the glue that hold most families together. I also don’t know anyone who would be surprised to hear that moms don’t always take the best care of themselves. Almost every mom I know winds up being the last one on the list. Everyone else in the family gets reminded to take the best care of themselves, but there’s never enough hours in the day. With these free printable self care journals for moms, you’ll be able to keep track and have reminders to take care of yourself. You matter too Momma.
Self Care Journal for Moms
This 10 page soul care journal will help you to focus on overall tracking of habits to help you be mindful of taking time to repeat your chosen affirmations, meditate, exercise, read, and write. Print the pages off and keep them next to your bed, where you like to enjoy your morning coffee, or end your day. Wherever you’ll have the best chance at having a few quiet moments to yourself to be able to focus on reflect.
This overall tracking page will help you be mindful of what activities you’re doing for yourself for the week. Do what works best for you. If you only want to track things during the week, that ok. Start out just making some time for yourself on the weekends if that’s easier. What’s important is that you’re making time for yourself and showing yourself and your children that you matter and taking time to care for yourself is important.
You can use this meditation and prayer page however it best fits in with your beliefs. What’s important is that you’re taking some quiet time for yourself and focus on you and your goals, hopes, and dreams.
Affirmations can be a powerful tool to help change your mindset and help you to think more positively. You might even have affirmations that you repeat with your children on a daily basis. Spend some time finding affirmations that resonate with you. (Need some inspiration? I’ve got a whole board on Pinterest dedicated to affirmations.)
Gratitude Journal for Moms
This printable gratitude journal is full of pages to include in your self care journal for moms. Print these pages off and add them with the other pages above to work on throughout the week.
You’ll find this journal is broken down by time of day. When you’re starting out, aim for spending time in the morning or evening completing the journal pages. As you make this more of a habit, you can add in the other page. These morning pages will help you think about the things you need to do and focus on for the day.
The evening pages are a bit different because they help you to reflect on your day as opposed to the morning pages helping you focus and plan your day.
You’ll also find several coloring pages to print and include in your self care journal. Spend some time mindlessly coloring these pages while you unwind after a long day or help you calm down before you start a crazy day.
