Parents benefit from practicing pacing themselves and taking well-deserved breaks. When we choose to parent, it is important to remember that parenting lasts a very long time, in fact parenting lasts forever. Doing things for yourself, cultivating joy and friendships, giving yourself time to enjoy your life apart from parenting is important modeling for your children. It is important for your child to see you exercise, nap, go on a walk, eat healthy foods, read a book, relax with friends, enjoy a hobby, and laugh. Remember, you only have to deal with what is happening at this moment. Breath. Everything will work out.
