I wrote some things about self care (link in profile) - arguably the most effective parenting or caregiving or human being tool there is.
The other half of my books at home are just about all women’s health, wellness, spirituality, or living simply. Present reminders of when our inner self is filled, we are enabled to fill and lift up others.
As a busy parent self care doesn’t need to be fancy or time-involved. I list some common go-to’s of mine in the post but the most powerful may be more intangible: appreciating the things around you right where you are in the moment/room, authenticity, and consciously shifting to positive self talk. Stopping yourself when your mind is swirling with to-dos and overwhelm and kids needing things, and telling yourself “everything is okay. It is always okay.” - may just be the most loving self-compassion tool there is.
