Finding time for self-care can be a challenge because babies require a lot from their caregivers. While it is a parent's job to give energy and resources to their children, at the end of the day parents also need sleep and other basic and not-so-basic needs in order to do so in a healthy and happy way. If you are feeling trapped, exhausted, resentful, or frustrated as a new parent- take it as a warning. Self-care can be spiritual, physical and/or mental. If you can figure out a way to fill all three cups daily, please share with a fellow parent how you do so. I'd love to know how you do self-care! Parenting is hard work. Asking for help does not make you a failure, it makes you stronger. Let's start a parenting self-care revolution! One solo Target trip at a time. One glass of wine and a bubble bath at a time. One trip out to dinner with friends at a time. You are worth it.
