Sometimes, I forget as I mother my kiddos, I need to mother myself as well. Here are four ways you can join me in Mothering Yourself.
- Time to see the doctor. I’ve scheduled ALL those medical appointments I’ve been putting off. If I tell other people their health is important, my health is important too. Two down and three to go. Hooray.
- It’s bed time. Go to sleep. Sure, it’s tempting to soak in the serenity a quiet house in the dark hours. But seriously, go to sleep.
- Chew your food. When the evening is full of activities, I find myself wolfing down food. I’m not sure if I think this will buy me an extra few minutes or I’m worried about being late. Either way, I need to slow down.
- Play with your friends. Whether it’s a phone call or a girls night out, get together with your friends. Studies show it’s great for your health.
