Parenting just went from hard to harder. We went from running everywhere to being with our kids 24/7. Homeschooling while you're try to work - yeah, that's not happening or at least not the way you'd like.
There is no time for self care.
The yelling has become real.
No more date nights.
No more sip and paints.
The screen has become your baby sitter.
The cycle never ends.
What to do?
Here are some suggestions.
1. Take a slow and steady deep breath. As you breathe in, feel your feet anchor to the earth. As you exhale, straighten your spine. Repeat your breath as you wiggle the tension from your shoulders.
2. Watch this video on a calming breath or select another one from my video and writing page.
3. Here's one of my favorite go-to's: Stand at the window and talk to yourself about what you see. It gets you out of your head and the noise for a moment.
4. Create a weekly read in bed night for the kids. Everyone goes to bed early with a stack of their favorite books. Tell them they have a quiet hour. If they are noisy, lights out. Then go kick your feet up with or without a book.
5. Sign up for a mindfulness workshop with friends, by yourself, or with your family. See the choices on this page.
