One thing I’ve learned over the last few months is how important it is for me to take time to myself. I don’t necessarily mean an entire weekend of time away, but just something for me. Maybe the includes going to the gym, grocery shopping, taking a walk… Just getting away for a bit.
Having those moments to myself work to get my mind back in place. Re-centering is so important when us parents have to be so focused on the safety, happiness, and development of our little loved ones.
