Practicing self care is crucial for every working mom, stay at home mom, wife, women, or human being! We have to make time for ourselves in order to take care of others.

hi friends welcome if you're Neal and if you're already a subscriber thanks for coming back if this is your first time watching me hello welcome to my channel my name is Gia I'm a working mom we tried to balance it all and I would love for you to join my YouTube family by clicking the subscribe button down below as well as a little bell next to it and for those already subscribed welcome back so I've been wanting to make this video for a while now you guys cuz I always get comments from time to time that ask me how I find time for myself or how do you recharge yourself and and how do you really take care of yourself when you have so many things going on and I really do have so many things going on just just to list a few I do work full-time outside of the home I have a six year old and a three year old and a husband and I manage our home and I have an online course I'm an online entrepreneur I'm a youtuber who tries to upload as much as she can so it's like my girls are in activities from gymnastics to swimming and you know it's a lot we do i do semi homeschooling with them so it's a lot that i have to a lot of balls in the air that i try to juggle but i have to tell you this it's the most important ball that i have that has to stay up in the air is my mental and physical health okay because if i am not healthy i cannot do all of the things that i was put on this earth to do okay and and you can say it until you're blue in the face but until you actually see it and know that it it's a necessity you'll you'll never know i mean everybody always says you have to take care of yourself before you can take care of others and i know that for a fact okay for a fact so when i feel myself getting run down and just feeling depleted of my energy because i give so much energy to my family to my career to my online endeavors to you know just everything that i want to do i know that i have to recharge myself and the number one way that i do that is by this I don't find the time I make the time I make it a necessity just like it's a necessity for you to shower and brush your teeth every day it has to be a necessity for you to take care of yourself and charge your own battery now for me personally I like to recharge my battery by just being alone and having quiet time I put on my headphones I'll run a nice extra hot steaming hot bath and I will just listen to some music that gets me just relaxed and in this vibe for me it's a little bit of neo-soul and 90s R&B that will just take me to a place that just completely changes my attitude completely fills my battery up and just makes me feel good I mean I can have the worst day and have a splitting headache but if I put some music on that I really like that I could just sing to and just sit in a bath my headache will go away and I absolutely to like take on the world again now I'm not saying a bath is for you may be for you and sometimes for me I'd like to watch reality television because it just removes me from my reality and I see that I'm actually pretty normal compared to the people that are on reality TV so it makes me feel good about myself sometimes I like to do that too but you have to find whatever that is for you like maybe it's jogging or walking or exercising or knitting or crafting or whatever it is you have to make the time to do it okay so many of us moms we are judging each other or putting each other down will you work out you you're a working mom or your stay-at-home mom or you have it easier like that is just nonsense nobody has it easy it's there's nothing easy about raising children to be capable healthy mentally stable adults there's nothing easy about that and it takes a lot of energy and a lot of time and so nobody has it easy and so we have to encourage each other we have to uplift each other we have to support one another okay and so you do that by making sure that you're your own personal battery is recharged so I just wanted to share that message to anybody that feels like you're drowning and you're overwhelmed or maybe you're a new mother you know it takes time to find a schedule but let me tell you something those dishes in the sink will be there tomorrow okay those those clothes that need to be folded will be there tomorrow but put your mental and physical health first before anything else because that's the only way that you can really survived this this thing called life you know for me I like to have my prayer time I like to do it first thing in the morning before I even you know after I cut off my alarm that's the first thing I do is just do a prayerful meditation because I feel like that sets me up for the day and in the evening I like to have my relaxing bath and quiet time to myself and that's okay okay so I want you to know it's okay for you to take care of yourself first and as a matter of fact it's a necessity so leave a comment down below and let me know how do you reach hard your energy your battery how do you keep yourself going and keep yourself energized for you and your family I would love to know leave a comment down below I love for us to support each other thank you guys so much for watching if you

guys so much for watching and I'll see you in the next video bye


  1. Great video! Sometimes I feel guilty when I take a moment for myself, knowing how many things are on the never ending list of things to do. This video reinforces how necessary it is. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Thank you, Jia!! Specifically, the reminder for us women and mothers to stop tearing each other down and start building each other up!!! There is not a more true statement roght now. Love your videos even though my son is grown and on his own, there is always something to take away – we are never too old to learn new things!!!

  3. This was great, sweet Jia. I feel the same – and if mama ain't doing ok, no one will be, right? I love to soak in a hot bath, watch my fave YouTubers (you're one of them!), and scrapbook. My kids and hubby also like to veg out, so we all honour each other's personal time… that is one thing that I love about our family dynamics. Love your vids, mama – please keep 'em coming, as long as you are enjoying it. Lots of hugs xxxooo Vicky

  4. Because I need to keep up with laundry, I turn it into "me" time. I fold early in the morning while everyone else is sleeping, and I can watch videos, listen to music or books, or just be in silence. I now look forward to the "chore".

  5. Hi there! Iโ€™m new here. I just came across your channel and Iโ€™m glad it did. I love that you are a a black YouTuber and black mother who wants to uplift other mothers as I want the same and try to do the same everyday! I too, and on this YouTube journey making vids on homeschooling so I love that you are semi homeschooling! I recharge my battery and start my day with meditation. It calms me, keeps me going and letโ€™s me know that I am indeed in control.

  6. My favorite ways to recharge, solo target trips in the evening, watching YouTube, cleaning (it makes me feel in control when everything feels out of control), cuddling with my 3 dogs, pinning dream homes on Pinterest, and the occasional foot massage.

  7. love what you said about reality television making you feel normal ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ its so true!! you're such an inspiration this topic is really hitting home to me right now

  8. Hallo Gia,
    To recharge my battery i try to take a nap or i listen to nature sounds on YouTube while i lay on my bed and relax. I love your Videos and your family you are great!
    Greetings from Germany, bye…

  9. Loved it ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ’œ thanks for sharing!
    I made it a point to recharge and head to the gym even for 30 minutes (baby steps) to take care of my health๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

  10. Jia, this video was just for me. I can't tell you how many time I make myself feel guilty about me time that I talk myself out of it. And my husband is constantly telling me I need to go do stuff and take breaks. I always tell him he doesn't understand bc it's so easy for him to get up and go with out a worry. But you and him are right. It should be just as easy for me. I need to focus on me sometimes. Thank you.

  11. I try to steal a few minutes here and there to watch a youtube video. I stay at home all day with my girls. I also love when bedtime comes and I can just turn on Netflix and watch something that I want to watch. Sometimes the chores are a break from the kids. I'd rather wash the dishes and let my husband hold the baby and take care of the kids. I feel recharged from getting a break from the kids and the dishes get a little cleaner when I'm scrubbing them.

  12. I have 2 boys (2yo & 6mo) and Iโ€™m realizing that caring for myself is very important. Iโ€™ve started a strength training program, meal planning, using a planner to keep things organized, and making sure the boys are in bed at a decent hour so I can have time alone. I relax by watching movies and hot showers.

  13. Hi Jia, I completely agree with you. We need to take care of ourselves. We often put our needs on the back burner. I recharge myself by working out three times a week and taking a bubble bath every Sunday Evening to relax before the new week.

  14. I have been feeling so drained lately and this was such a great reminder to take time for myself to recharge. I loved what my devotional said this past weekend too – stop digging broken cisterns. If itโ€™s not bettering you, let it go. Time is too precious especially as a mama!

  15. I'm a working mom and wife we have 8 children ages 16, 14, 14, 11, 11, 7, 5 and 5…. ๐Ÿ™‚ life never stops but I love to take the time to get my nails done I love a good meal movie night a great book and sometimes I just throw a blanket in the grass lay on my back and just watch the sky, silly, but relaxing

  16. This is so helpful. I battle with taking care of myself even though I know it's really important. Thanks so much for sharing and I love your channel. You are such an inspiration so please keep doing what you do!

  17. Hi Jia! I enjoyed your video. I take care of myself by listening to my fav music (Personal Jam Sessions), catching up on my favorite TV shows, writing poetry/stories/journaling and lastly, praying.
