Smell the Flowers I mean actually smell the flow- ers! Not just slow things down like the old expression implies. Do you have a favorite fragrance that makes you feel calm? My number one way to smell the flowers is by using essential oils. They are creat- ed from plants and have wonderful healing properties as well. I like to put a few drops in my diffuser and use the fragrance to help me relax, as a pick me up when I’m tired and can’t nap, or even to clean the air of germs and toxins. Lavender is a great oil to help you get a better night’s rest. My daily self-care practice in- volves a little of all of these things and it really doesn’t take me long at all, but I sure feel it when I miss a day. Having a self-care routine I enjoy has helped me stay centered as a mom and it has also helped improve my adult relationships. I’m a calmer mama for sure and I hope some of these things will help you be a calmer mama too!  Josie Myers helps moms find a place of peace by teaching them how to truly enjoy their lives through self-care and support without judgment.
