If you are a busy mother or caregiver like myself, your “To Do List” is filled with things needed to help your children make a smooth transition into their new school year.
But let me ask: do you put yourself anywhere on that “To Do List?” In my own experience, there were many days that I never even considered my own needs, let alone found the time to tend to them. I knew deep inside that something needed to change.
I made a commitment to start each day with time for me. At first, I could only offer myself five minutes per day. Once I gave myself this small gift of time every morning, I began to notice how much more pleasant and balanced I felt. It’s like the moment on an airplane when we are instructed to put on our own oxygen mask before we assist our children.
The first thing I do when I wake up is list three things that I am grateful for and three things that I love about myself. I either speak these aloud or write them in my journal.
