Fathers work and earn for the family, but do you think the work mothers do is appreciated. It is just not a fact but simply the truth that mothers are the most hardworking in the world. They work for 24 hours a day for the whole year. Studies show that a mother should go on vacation with other mothers, basically without their family.
Everybody knows the concept of a vacation, but very few of us know the concept of ‘mom-cations’. A man in the house might come from work and rest after that because he has done a lot of work. But the lady of the house never stops, even after coming from home she has to take care of the whole house.
From the kitchen to clothes to anything and everything one might need; the mothers know everything. One might just be a homemaker and might not earn money but the work done by her is never counted in economic terms. While working for almost 24 hours a day for the whole year, they go through a lot of financial and emotional stress.
Mom-Cations is a new concept that is specifically trending on social media. It is a trip where mothers get to enjoy some days of their lives without their family. And psychologists suggest that mothers should go on mom-cations more often, as it ensures a better life.
According to the psychologists, mom-cations help women to release the stress and help them to have a better relationship with their loved ones. It just not only improves their relationships with their family but their relationship with themselves as well. A person needs to have a good relationship with themselves and in a constant routine of taking care of others, mothers forget to take care of their own.
Psychology professor Dr. Nava Silton states: “it’s very important for kids to see that balance that ideally needs to be achieved in a family situation”. One might think that it is all the job of the mothers of the house to ensure that the kids are ready on time with their lunch boxes, ironed clothes, books and other things for their day. A mother has to ensure that the whole family has to be on time.
Sometimes the mothers start believing that it is only their job to plan everything when it comes to the household decisions and nobody except them could do it better. That is where they and everyone else goes wrong. They have to give a chance to their spouse and kids to run the show once in a while. You can help them plan out things but give them a chance.
Thus, mom-cations are important and while the mothers are away, they can help their spouse plan things. One should undergo the stress what their partner is going through. This helps in mending relationships and help them grow.
One mother after her mom-cation shared her experience, “I came back and I was a better mom. A more patient mom. A better wife. You learn to appreciate what you have at home because you got that break from it all”. Breaks now and then are important for emotional, psychological and physical health.
