New summer look.
My grandfather helped to found a nursing home in Seattle for his parents' generation when he saw how poorly 1st generation Japanese were being treated in mainstream institutions. This week I got their publication in the mail and immediately noticed these tips for caregivers. Notice how they could just as easily apply to moms of young kids! Learning how to care for yourself, vent when you need to, get support...these are self care skills that will potentially serve you your whole life! I ♥️ helping moms care for themselves because they get the immediate payoff, AND equip themselves with an essential mindset for the challenges life will continue to bring. #braveselfcare #selfcare #selfcarematters #selfcareisntselfish #certifiedlifecoach

Earnestly rubbing in sunscreen: I'm getting the HECK of it! (hang of it) Guys, I'm tired. As a creature of habit, there's something particularly draining about having to think through our days when there's change. New drop off times, summer camps, logistics, all take up brainspace. And you know what? It's okay. It's gonna take time to adjust to. In good time, I'll get the heck of it....And you will, too. ♥️ . . #braveselfcare #selfcarematters #selfcare #bekind #summer #conversationswitha4yearold #momlife
