Moms often put themselves on the bottom of the priority list. Women are experts at care-giving and multitasking. Moms tend to children’s needs first, followed by the needs of one’s partner, extended family, the demands of household and work-no matter if you are a stay-at-home mom, have a home business, or work outside the home. Last but not least, a mom may allow herself a break! This class focuses on ways moms can strive toward personal self care in the throes of parenting. We will address why putting your self-care first is at the heart of caring for others. The challenges in raising children can range from loss of sleep, fatigue, physical wear and tear, a lack of focus and distraction (“maternal ADD”), to anxiety and depression.Moms can develop a daily habit of attending to her own needs, carving out some sacred time to “reset” and restore. These daily habits will build lasting resilience, sense of purpose and inner calm.
