The Best Self-Care Routine for Busy Moms

For someone who has always worked from an office, these last six months of working from home have been a rollercoaster of emotions, and I don’t even have kids. I have some guilt over feeling lucky in this scenario because I can’t imagine the added layer of stress that comes with being responsible for another human right now. Finding the fine line between me time, work time, and kid time sounds like the perfect recipe for getting even the strongest person to crack, but not for my co-worker Judith Jones. “Towards the end of last year, I suffered major burn out, and realized then and there just how important it is to spend time on myself in order to be a better mom, wife, and all-round nicer and happier human being,” she explains. “Even if it’s just 10 minutes, a little self-care time can change my whole outlook for the day.”

It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that Judith has been prioritizing self-care, and that always starts with her hair. “I’m focused on quality products that will save time, and I’ve found that the Dyson hair tools are the best investments if you want to look and feel confident with minimal heat damage and styling time,” she tells me. After all, Dyson is the expert in designing tools that put hair health and functionality first. So it makes sense that Judith is especially drawn to the Dyson Corrale™ straightener, that uses flexing plates that shape to gather hair for more control, which means less heat and damage. Plus, it’s cordless and gives her a lot of flexibility. “I love listening to a work call and doing my hair at the same time,” she says. If you’re as curious as I am about what a typical day actually looks like for Judith—and when she sneaks in these moments to give her hair some love—she takes us through it below.
