I hope my children remember me telling them :
BE GOOD TO YOU.
If we can't be good to ourselves as Mom's we can't show our children how to be great parents someday.
If we can't be good to ourselves, then we can't show our children the importance of self-care.
If we can't be good to ourselves, then we can't teach them how to combat burnout.
"Be nice to you or Be good To You"
is something I tell my family and my dear friends when they are having a rough day.
Be as nice to you as you would be to a friend in the same spot.
Here are5 Ways to Be Nice to YOU!
we spend less on yarn than a round of golf, and we end up with something lasting.
*Shut it all out and Shut if all off.
Sometimes 10 minutes of quiet can change your mindset.
Sit on your porch, sit by a stream,
shut the radio off in the car,
or shut of the TV for a bit.
Quiet is soothing in my book.
*Talk to yourself the way you would talk to a dear friend.
*My Nana kept her hair looking wonderful into her 90s.
She dressed well and she used so much foundation my mother swore she drank it!
But she cared about herself and her looks.
She once quipped, "I need my lipstick" before she let the paramedics in to attend to her ...
She was a great example to us.
*Say no to something without an excuse.
Allow yourself to say no. Nicely of course-
*Sleep in or take a nap.
You know I believe in naps.
*How will YOu be good to YOu today?
