Self care as a Mum is important not only for yourself, but also your family. Taking care of yourself and your mental health is paramount for being an awesome Mum. You know, the mum that you are, and the mum you have wanted to be since you first saw those two sweet little eyes staring up at you.
Without taking the time out to care for yourself, you are less likely to be the best version of yourself that there is. All the aspects in your life can be affected when you don’t care for yourself. For example, your relationships with your kids and your partner may suffer, and these things can happen without you noticing straight away.
I can hear you groaning as you read this, thinking ‘how can I possibly fit something more into my life?’ I know the feeling, I have three kids under four, work a full-time job juggling pickups and drop offs with my hubby, constantly trying to organise dinner – the list is endless!
