Why is it so easy to do something for our kids, but so difficult to do something for ourselves? I recently chatted with a long time BFF about making the switch to clean beauty and she said "I already choose clean products for my kids, I don't know why I haven't for myself!?" I think sometimes it can feel selfish to invest in ourselves as moms. Taking time to go to the gym, making ourselves a healthy meal, taking a mental health day, investing in safer + cleaner products for ourselves...it all feels selfish. But the truth of it is, it's the least selfish thing you can do. Your children NEED you. If you do the research the stats are alarming and consequences are quite literally, deadly.
