When it comes to caring for your children, it might feel like a pretty obvious and simple topic of conversation, yet it can be helpful to consider the following points in terms of optimizing your ability to take care of your children and for them to develop into healthy, happy, human beings!
Trick-or-treating is the pinnacle of Halloween for most kids. Sure, they get to carve pumpkins, strut around in a killer Halloween costume, and help decorate the house with some appropriate spooky decor, but the golden prize is the bag of candy after a long night of trick-or-treating around the neighborhood.
As mothers, we often buy into limiting beliefs that “me time” is tough to come by, or that we need to sacrifice in order to be good mothers. It’s just not true. The most important step you can take to having time for yourself is believing that you can. Next time you’re lying in bed, wondering how you’ll squeeze yourself into the upcoming day, make a choice. Choose to make yourself a priority. Choose to reenergize. Don’t get lost in all you have to do. Find the woman you are and take care of her. Everything else you do will be better because you did.
