Simple Self Care for Mothers

It's very easy to get lost in motherhood. You gain a child but lose yourself within the changing emotions during the postpartum period and the increased demands and expectations of motherhood. Back to You in 5 helps mothers remember who they are by reconnecting with themselves through self care. 

Back to You in 5 offers simple, effective resources to mothers as they embark on their self care journey;  provides women with encouragement and support as they adjust to their roles as mothers and create the life they see for themselves; and helps mothers manage the overwhelm, frustration, irritability, exhaustion, identity crisis, and resentment that is experienced along the motherhood journey. 

From the creator - “I want women to feel empowered through motherhood. I truly believe we become great mothers by being true to ourselves and by feeling whole as women. That is what self care is to me - wholeness.” -Brittany Elliott 

Self care is the practice of protecting your well-being and happiness.

about Brittany Elliott

Self Care Coach, Podcaster, Speaker

I help mothers reconnect with themselves through self care, because I know what it's like to get stuck in a cycle of overwhelm, exhaustion, resentment and frustration...and I know HOW to get out of that cycle.

In April 2020, I'd realized I'd lost connection with myself. My daughter was 2 years old, I'd been married almost a year and we were in the process of buying a home. Like many others, the pandemic had turned my home into a work place. I spent many days working at my dining room table in my pajamas. I was lost.

I don't remember the date, but I do remember how I felt the day I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I looked older, a bit tired and completely unrecognizable to myself. I couldn't remember the last time I'd looked in the mirror. Was it during my honeymoon the year before? I hadn't taken a picture of myself in months and my phone's photo album was filled with thousands of pictures of my daughter. It was more than an identity crisis. I was experiencing a shattered sense of self.

Those few moments looking at my reflection showed me that while I'd been working hard as a mother, wife and employee, I'd lost my connection to myself. I decided to change that and make the time, even if it were a small amount, to regain my sense of self. I committed to 5 minutes of self care each day.

That commitment changed my life. It can change yours too! Self care is more about the decisions we make than the activities we do. The more you set boundaries, move yourself up on the priority list, and make time for yourself, the more you'll start feeling vibrant, calm, encouraged and gratified.

Back to You in 5 has 3 core pillars: Reflect. Reconnect. Renew.

Reflect on your growth and what you have accomplished along the motherhood journey.

Reconnect with yourself by returning to the passions and interests that make you who you are as a woman.

Renew your confidence, establish better habits, set new goals, and thrive throughout your journey. 

Consistent self-care decreases anxiety and stress, increases confidence and improves the relationship you have with yourself. 

I appreciate you!

Motherhood is a journey, not a destination.
