Gavin McCormack sent me an email about the importance of modeling self-care to our children. I agree with the following points he makes.
Let your children see you rest, read a book, stroke a cat, take an afternoon nap, sip tea, write a journal, listen to music or daydream the afternoon away.
I think this advice is especially important today, with our pandemic. When the world hands us challenges, show the children how to slow down and take care of your self. It re-charges our energy and positivity.
McCormack states, “There’s absolutely nothing wrong with looking after yourself in a way that suits you.” I Agee!
