Yay Children Are Back At School (Happy Dance)

Are we all celebrating that children are back at school?  I know for me I was slightly relieved that Grace has gone back but I do miss her chatter.  For a child with autism, holidays can be extremely tough so Grace found it hard to manage her anxiety everyday without having the school routine.

Nevertheless, it is extremely important now that mums and dads both complete some self care activities everyday.  Now I am not saying that you have to do something extravagant everyday but it is important even if you take 5 minutes out of your day to look after yourself.

It is extremely common that mums and dads put their own needs last and feel guilty for putting their needs first.  But reality is, if YOU are not putting your needs and you become sick then what good are you to the rest of the family.  It is imperative that YOU put yourself first and make sure you are doing something for yourself.

Examples of this could be:

  • Taking time to read the newspaper
  • Reading a book
  • Painting your finger nails
  • Calling a friend
  • Having a massage
  • Having a date with partner
  • Having a coffee and simply relaxing
  • Meditating

Over the month of February, we are having a challenge of completing 28 days of self care activities.  Plus if you are signed up for my newsletter, complete and share your activities each day you will be in the running to win my first giveaway of a product that I simply love.  Believe me my skin has never looked better.  So make sure you are signed up for my newsletter, pop into my facebook page to share your self care ideas and you could win this magnificent prize.
