SELF-NURTURING FOR YOU BECAUSE PARENTING YOUNG CHILDREN IS HARD

SELF-NURTURING FOR YOU BECAUSE PARENTING YOUNG CHILDREN IS HARD

 CARING FOR YOURSELF

Parenting young children can be extremely difficult at times. To rejuvenate, do things for yourself.  If you have not made any investments in yourself, you will not have anything to give to your child. Some say that every day you should do at least one thing to take care of yourself in each of the following domains: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

 You will be taking care of yourself and modeling positive self-care for your child. Your child will learn, by your example, how to care for themselves when they are emotional or even having tantrums. When children become teenagers and adults, they will be exposed to destructive ways of dealing with life’s irritations such as drinking, 3 hours a day of TV watching, eating a pint of chocolate ice cream in front of an open freezer door straight out of the carton (my personal favorite), gambling, exploding in anger, etc. Your positive example will serve as an alternative.

What you or your child can do to feel better:

Physically

Take a bath

Throw a ball against a wall

Paint toe nails

Eat well

Go for a walk

Mentally

Read

Engage in a hobby like cooking, sewing, woodworking,or  growing flowers

Journal- multiple pages a day

           This is good for self-awareness.

Emotionally

Help others

         Hold door open for someone. Make a card for an elderly neighbor.

Hang out with positive people

Hug a stuffed animal

Spiritually

Pray

Read Bible/spiritual text    

​Plan your day

        At the beginning of each day, set aside 15 minutes to plan your day and think of how it could go more smoothly.  At the end of each day, set aside another 15 minutes to reflect on what went well and what you would like to improve.
