Commemorate Your Mother and Her Undying Love the Right Way!
March 20 2018
Mothers are phenomenal! They provide undying love and support to their family round the clock without any care or concern for their personal well-being. While they put their families first, ever taken a moment to think about them and what you can do to pay them back for all their efforts?
Caring for a family can take a toll on your mum’s personal health which often goes unnoticed because there’s always a bigger kids/family-related emergency to take care of. Mothers from different walks of lives; be it a working mum or a homemaker, a new mum or an experienced mum, have their own health issues that they deal with on a regular basis.
Many of these health issues go unnoticed due to all the other family-related things they have on their plates. Apart from felicitating the efforts they put in for their families and dedicating special days for them, the question we should be answering is, “how to make a real difference in their lives?” In order to make a notable difference, we need to think beyond simple gestures and find ways to enable them to live fuller lives when it comes to their personal health and wellbeing.
Common health problems that mothers deal with on a daily basis:
Running around all day doing their daily chores can take a toll on your mother’s physical health. After all, providing for a family is no joke. However, this constant exertion can lead to a number of physical ailments, the most common one being recurring backaches. So, try and ask your mum how you can help her in any way possible! You can take up all the chores that require heavy lifting or extra exertion such as grocery shopping, taking out the trash, deep cleaning etc. Apart from these, you can also register her for special workout classes (obviously something that she likes and would be interested in participating in) to help ease her pain and stiffness.
Tired and Aching Feet
Mothers are always running around to fulfil all of their responsibilities, efficiently at that. So, they never have the time to worry about their tired, swollen feet because it’s the same drill every other day. While aching feet might not come across as a serious problem at first, it can significantly impact your mum’s daily abilities over time. If you’ve heard your mother complain about aching feet, why not come up with a good solution to help her ease her pain? Apart from giving her foot massages, invest in a good pair of anti-microbial compression socks to help her reduce the discomfort she faces otherwise. Copper-infused compression socks are a real saviour in such situations as the compression takes care of the swelling while the copper-infused fabric keeps germs and microbes at bay!
Did you know that the prevalence of varicose veins is 55% greater in women as compared to men and that pregnancy and ageing only heighten the chances of developing such a problem? This goes to show that all women may face the problem of varicose veins at some point in their lives. As mentioned, copper compression socks are a great way to fight this problem as the compression fabric is known to boost intravenous blood flow, thus helping the varicose vein problem while regulating blood flow to the feet!
Skin allergies are a whole other problem! Your mother probably comes in contact with numerous allergens and germs during her day while working around the house, the office and while running errands. The anti-microbial properties of copper hand gloves are a great way to help your mother combat such issues! For additional skin protection from such germs and microbes, you can even go ahead and purchase a set of copper-infused bedsheets and pillowcases to reap the benefits of copper round-the-clock.
Last but not least, comes sleep deprivation! Ask any mother what she needs in her life and her response will probably include a variation of wanting to catch up on sleep/me-time/rest and relaxation. For all the efforts that this amazing woman puts in, you can reward her by creating a safe haven for her to retire to at the end of the day. Give her bedroom a quick makeover with some scented candles, calming fragrances to bring about a soothing vibe along with new bedsheets, cosy slippers and lots of pillows! (Pro Tip - Get your mum the luxurious copper-infused eye mask so her tired eyes can reap the revitalizing benefits of copper while she sleeps!) Basically, anything that will help her wash away the stress from her day!
And there you have it! You don’t need a magnificent gesture to show your mother you care; simply making a commitment to her health can make a world of a difference! Simply put more thought in thinking of ways to reciprocate all the love and care you receive from your mother, you will be able to see a noticeable difference in her health and overall wellbeing!
