Getting a good foot massage is believed by some to prevent injuries, improve your circulation, increase your energy, relieve your stress and even prevent diseases. In fact, getting a great foot rub goes all the way back to ancient Egypt.

Facials done at home can be fabulous. You can do a great one using common, household ingredients or go for spa-quality treatment. Either way, your mom will relish the fresh feelings that cleansing, exfoliating, toning, treating, and moisturizing can bring.

You can pay some very good money for a back massage….or you can watch YouTube for tips on how to do it yourself. If you don’t have a massage table, use a bed or lie on the kitchen table, with some pillows.

4) Hiking

Love the outdoors? Take your mom on a hike-it’s a great way to bond and spend some quality time in nature.

Check out the American Hiking Society to find a hike in your area.

5) The Sound of Silence

This one is just like the Visa ads say, “priceless”. A couple of hours in the day to herself to do whatever she chooses could be just what a busy mom wants.

If you’re relying on her for something today, do it yourself. Tell her she needs to put those groceries down, drop the laundry and get outside. Tell her to go anywhere. Mom officially has some time in silence to herself today, to do whatever she pleases.

Maybe she wants to hide out in the living room with a book, walk in the park, or visit the local pub: whatever makes her tick. She has the right to a bit of free time, and to make as quiet- or loud- as she sees fit.

Happy Mother’s Day!
