Go on... You deserve it!

Self-care is an important part of parenting, and one that often gets overlooked. In this article by Marisa Lascala, it is highlighted that “our children look to us and how we treat ourselves. This goes for many things: how we speak to ourselves, how we treat our bodies, how we value our time. Modeling healthy self-care can be helpful for our children to witness and internalize. We are teaching them that taking care of yourself matters just as much as taking care of your family.”

Remember: “you can’t pour from an empty cup, take care of yourself first” Norm Kelly.

Yoga with Adriene

“Getting back to the true you. It can be that simple. Yoga offers up a way for us to see the world that is working for you instead of against you. Yoga reminds me that everything is connected so we must live, act, breathe with awareness. The process is the candy. Enjoy!”
