As a parent of two young children I see the importance of self care, but this wasn't always the case. It took awhile (okay nearly 5 years) before I figured out that I am able to show up better for my kiddos when I take care of me. Not only am I setting the precedence for healthy habits, but I am less cranky and more patient. Taking time for yourself is nothing to feel guilty about and is essential to healthy well- being. Give yourself a break! You deserve it!
