Raise your hand if you know how to practice self-care. Hint: Self-care is more than a massage or day off. It’s taking active steps to care for yourself and invest in your relationships and hobbies. Commit 15 minutes daily to doing something that makes you feel good. More importantly, practice self-care in front of your kids. They learn what it’s like to be an adult from you. So teach them to put on their oxygen mask first by putting on YOUR oxygen mask first. When the whole family has healthy ways of coping, it makes “adulting” appealing. For everyone.
