I don’t know about you but there are often times that I feel like I’m running on a hamster wheel. Going, going, going, more to do, more to see, more to be… and ultimately it’s draining. It can turn you into a grumpy human. Many of us feel overwhelmed and yet, we don’t know how to turn off. In a world of hustle & bustle, it’s easy to forget about what’s important, who’s important, and that caring for ourselves is important and required for healthy life balance.
We’re here to tell you, you can’t pour out from an empty cup… it’s like the airplane instructions & oxygen masks – pour into your cup first. Be mindful as new parents, to do something for yourself every day; even if it’s just getting dressed in something you feel wonderful in and brushing your teeth. And then, make yourself a nice pot of tea & enjoy with some sweet biscuits; just make sure to put them close enough, so you can reach them while you feed your little munchkin. Cheerio!
