Top 5 Mommy Getaway Destinations

When you ask a mother who is her favorite person in the world, you’ll get such a quick, almost light-speed “my child” answer that you’ll stand amazed at it. And, if you are a mother, you know this already, right? Right.

Somehow, us moms grew from being the life of the party to those dedicated and committed parents who have their entire worlds revolve around their kid. There’s nothing wrong with that, really. It’s just that… from time to time, we all need a breather, and once you realize that’s a totally okay feeling to have, your life will change!

Since being a mother requires so much energy, the fair thing to do is allow yourself and your “mom” friends a fair and square getaway! Sure, expect to go through all those “Maybe I shouldn’t have”, “Will they be okay without me”, “is Jim going to be able to handle it on his own”, “Are they eating sugar before bed”, “I can’t miss his first practice”, “what activities will they do“, etc. but don’t stress about it, please. That feeling of guilt is absolutely normal (especially for new moms) and you’ll get over it! Nobody’s judging you – just take a deep breath, and you’ll be okay.

If you’ve been contemplating this vacation for quite some time now, yet you aren’t sure where to go or what to organize, here are some suggestions that will definitely help you decide!

1. Make it a Spa Weekend Experience

Allowing yourself to splurge a little on a spa weekend will transcend you to the wonderful days when your before-bed routine meant a hot shower, night creams, a movie /massage, and not trying to rub off all the paint and marker color off of your shirt, or food stains from your pants. Ha!  Facials, whole body relaxation massages and everything in-between while you are enjoying freshly made mimosas and a chat will your gal pals – heaven! You’ll probably enjoy so much that you’ll go “My kids, who?” at some point. Ha-ha, just kidding!

2. Food and Wine Tour in the Country

If you’ve moved to the suburbs then you already know how often these tours may get. If you are in the city, the country experience will be even bigger of a blessing! Running away from all the hectic city jams and going to the country for a few days will help you regain the inner peace you’ve been lacking. Pair that up with super tasty wine and delicious food, and you’ve got yourself an amazing wine country getaway!

3. Go to a Spiritual Retreat

Spiritual retreats must be the best invention of life! They are everything a modern, hard working person needs, and they’ve been organized in such a way that they’ll offer you benefits starting with consulting, to spa-resembling treatments, to help in terms of life coaching; putting your guard down and talking to someone about things that have been pressing you may just be the type of getaway you need. Numerous spiritual retreats in Australia offer some of the best services, so if you are living in the Land Down Under – you know what to do!

4. Go Clubbing Old School

Why not! No, we aren’t suggesting getting piss drunk and falling asleep in some alley, or meeting someone and taking them home! We are saying that going dancing with your friends is a super fun way to leave your daily troubles aside for a night, enjoy yourself and show off with those amazing dance moves!

5. Go on a Road Trip

Pick a destination, sit in your car and just drive! Pick up your friends along the way, turn up the volume and let loose! We aren’t suggesting going on a Euro trip but simply taking a chilled road trip to the closest town/city, countryside or even going to the beach for a day or two. This will be a life time experience, believe us!
