Thank you to Nature's Bounty for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
When you're a mom, especially a busy mom that works from home, you can drain yourself. Drain yourself to the point where you have nothing left for anyone else – let alone yourself.
It's time to open up your eyes and acknowledge you matter too. You can run around all day taking care of everyone else, but if you don't take care of yourself too, everyone will suffer.
You need to take care of all parts of you – physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual. Your holistic health impacts your health today, and will impact it even more in the future. Your family needs you, so you need to take care of yourself.
So today, I'm asking you to take care of yourself. Take time for yourself and start integrating more of the practices you know feed your body and soul.
Here are 10 things that you know help your body and soul be whole:
- Go for walks in nature
- Practice yoga regularly
- Meditate every day
- Sit by the lake in silence
- Read more books
- Drink herbal tea
- Get crafty and artistic every week
- Nourish your body with good food
- Unplug at least one day a week
- Laugh and be silly with your kids
