Motherhood is beautiful. But you need to recharge your batteries on a daily basis.
For that, you need to remember that there’s no one except you, who can do that for you.
I have a few things in my morning ritual, daily, and to-do list which helps.
I have realized life is not a sprint.It’s a marathon. The only one with grit, determination, and passion can win.
So here are my to-do lists which help me keep sane
Wake up with a smile and kiss both my baby and hubby.
Five minutes cuddling Rai.
The perfect cup of green tea and breakfast, before we go for school drop.
Come back, make the bed, water the plants, while coffee is brewing(yes I need my morning cup of coffee too).
Start writing my morning pages by longhand, while drinking coffee. Do the last edits and publish my blog post for the day.
Off to the hospital for my professional duties.

The 10 things I do daily to keep me happy and energetic
Read a book.Books are my favorite way to relax and unwind. I love reading.
Mysteries, courtroom dramas, and detective stories are my comfort reads.Reading a Bengali murder mystery, curled up in the rocking chair with a cup of iced tea makes me very happy.
Read at least 3 blogs.
Reading other blogs helps me learn new things. What people are exploring, their experiences and challenges, all are learning grounds for a new blogger like me.
Exercise. This is the single most important thing I must do daily to keep everything running. When I exercise I feel good about taking care of my body. My mind is happy as it’s full of endorphins. I feel fitter and more energetic. It’s great for my self-esteem as I stick to my goals.
Talk to my mom. Moms know best about everything. So sharing my worries and plans with my mom always helps.
Get in touch with a friend. Friends are our true treasures. That’s why I always take care to cherish those who are great friends.
Cook something healthy. Very important.Even in the busiest days, I try to cook something healthy.
Say I love you to those who need to hear. Self-love and self-care are most important. Until we make it a point to make this a priority it’s not going to happen.I have realized I am not doing my best in anything until I do my best for myself.
What are your ways to show self-love?
