‘You can’t pour from an empty Cup’
With Andrew starting anew job and me spending all my time with millie and keeping the house clean I have been feeling like nothing more than a mum. And let’s be honest that’s not really a bad thing, but I have been neglecting myself.
So when I saw the stunning, mindful Brooke Styles promote a ‘Self Care Challenge’ she had created I knew I had to jump
on board straight away.
As you can see the list is some of the simplest things that I as a mother normally rush through or just don’t do at all. But the last 4 days I have taken the time for myself. Most of them take 10-15 minutes. It’s not an unreasonable amount of time to put into yourself each day. It’s made me more aware of taking enjoying the simple things like a hot shower and not rushing through it to get Millie ready for bed.
This challenge isn’t only for mums (although I highly recommend it) but for anyone who is putting their all into work, study, or even just over the same thing day in and day out. Pop over to Instagram and jump on board. Doesn’t have to be this one. There are 100’s out there that you can do. But I think it’s important that we all take a little bit of time each day for our own mental health.
