Au Pair Services at Evolve Day Spa
Most moms feel guilty about taking time out from the overwhelming, full-time duty of having to take care of those precious, little bodies. You probably know the feeling of insanely loving your little one, but at the same time, secretly longing for a break. At Evolve, we believe that moms are so important, but their own well-being is often neglected.
So what is “ME time”? Having a bath? Reading a magazine about the Kardashian’s latest scandal whilst gulping down your coffee? No matter how many candles, bubbles or coffee, the children are still making mess that needs to be cleaned after your bath. This is NOT what we consider “ME time”. The bathroom is not a lavish five-star retreat! Most moms have just 17 minutes of “ME time” a day! Don’t get us wrong, we are so grateful to be part of the journey, however, let’s get real, moms’ life can be monotonous, and often don’t get a well-deserved pamper day where they get to rest and recharge.
At Evolve, we would like to change that and give you back that precious “ME time” you deserve. Here are a few good reasons to press pause and give yourself precious mommy “ME time”:
It improves your mood
It helps you express gratitude
It helps you focus
It gives you perspective
It builds confidence
You can’t help others until you help yourself
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Eventually your kids will grow up
You deserve it
Sanity is not overrated
Still don’t think you need alone time?
Research shows that alone time is essential for emotional, spiritual, mental and physical health. Furthermore, the consequences of not having alone time can lead to depression, anxiety, burnout, extreme stress, sleep disturbances, backaches, headaches and weight gain. On top of all of this, it can lead to greater parenting distress and poorer parenting practices!
“ME time”, is not selfish, taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of everyone else.
For all the reasons mentioned above, we will be providing au pair services on Monday and Tuesday mornings to all mommies who use our services during these times. We so strongly believe that mommies need their “ME time”, that we will be providing this service absolutely free. Marlise Pieterse has been au pairing for the last 15 years and is absolutely amazing with kids. The first au pair day will be on Monday the 22nd of October and our kids’ theme for the next few weeks will be the Ocean. Space is limited, so remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment!
So next time your husband, partner or friend ask you what they can do for you? It’s a no brainer. Get a gift voucher to Evolve Day Spa and let your little one’s have fun whilst you relax. Looking forward to giving you that well deserved “ME time”.
