YOU NEED TO FILL YOUR CUP AND CARE FOR YOURSELF IN ORDER TO BE AN EFFECTIVE PERSON AND PARENT
Come try out lots of different ways of nurturing yourself and making day to day life easier and more fulfilling and make some new friends along the way.
As a new mother it is really easy to lose your self. To focus so much on putting the needs of your baby and your family first that we forget to look after ourselves. The saying ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’ is very true as a new mother. We hear about the importance of self care but what does that mean when you have a little one who is reliant on you 24/7?
Sometimes the idea of trying to not only find time for self care, but to actually make a decision about it and organise it is all too much. It’s easier not to. What are the long term impacts of not looking after ourselves? Our physical, mental and emotional health can suffer and so can our relationships. Looking after ourselves is important so we can look after others. Let us take the stress out of organising it and come to our self care sampler where we delve into different activities to support your mental and emotional wellbeing.
