In a letter to me, I will let you know that you have accomplished to be there for parental units, siblings, significant others, friends and your own mini me. It used to be seen as a sacrifice…
The idea of this post, is to commit to some self-care every day for the entire month of January. Already, I’m starting the new year committing to self-care challenges and haven’t successfully completed day one. At this time as I type this post – there’s four minutes left till the day – then we’ll be off to a new challenge.
There is 24 hours in one day, however, we’re supposed to be sleeping at least eight of them. As new moms, catching a cat nap during the day is even encouraged. Moving around trying to do everything and have everything perfect, is not ideal. The mind and body has gone through an ordeal, you have to give it time to recuperate while taking care of a new person. The laundry will get done. The dishes aren’t going anywhere.
Day two of the self-care challenge, go for a walk. Like my mother, in her pre-stroke days, walking was more than just an exercise, it was a mode of transportation.
