Self-care is more important now than ever

COVID-19 Shelter In Place Day Seventeen

We all need to remember to take time for ourselves.

This is something that many parents and especially women struggle to do in normal times but it’s even more important now.

Yes, there are a ton of things to do — clean the house, work from home, take care of the kids, help the kids with school, take care of your fur-babies…

The list goes on and on.

Everyone is looking to you for help.

But, you won’t be able to help anyone if you don’t make time for yourself.

It doesn’t have to be a lot of time (I mean, who has that?). Maybe, thirty minutes to soak in the tub. Read a good book. Watch your favorite show on TV.

Something. Anything.

Just do it.

I have a friend who doesn’t even get the type of pizza she likes when they order for the family. I argue with her to get half a pizza the way she likes it.

She always says, “But no one else likes mushrooms and I don’t mind eating the other kind.”

Don’t mind isn’t good enough, ladies.

You deserve to have a few pieces of pizza exactly how you like it. Take a stand. Know that your happiness is just as important as everyone else’s.

Okay. I’m stepping off my soapbox for the day.

Take care of yourselves – both physically and emotionally.
