Being a parent is a tough job, and being a mom is one of THE toughest jobs for sure. Many moms work outside of the home and then put in many hours at home working for the family. According to a recent study, moms works an average of 98 hours a week! Even when moms go on vacation, it’s rare they get a chance to really relax and unwind.
Psychologists suggest that moms need a “momcation” in order to avoid burnout. Moms need a vacation without a spouse or kids so that they can truly unwind. Experts also say that a “momcation” can actually improve a woman’s relationship with her spouse and her kids.
Lots of hotels and resorts are now offering “momcation” packages. There are all kinds of “momcation” packages, from high-end luxury to budget-friendly, so moms can find what they need to recharge. And the cool thing about these “momcation” packages is that you, or the mom in your life, can pick a specific date for them.
There are tons of great hotels and spas in and around Charlotte and in North Carolina. I just had a facial at Hand & Stone, Southpark, and it was amazing! Granted, it was just an hour, but it was so relaxing. I had no clue how stressed I was….and I’m not even a mom!
I found a list of some great getaways here in North Carolina that would work for a stellar “momcation” and if the mom in your life enjoys traveling, check out some awesome spots around the country here.
