I'm realizing how much more difficult it is to follow through on even tiny acts of self care while the family is all home for the holiday weekend. It makes me see how quickly I dismiss my own wants and needs when there is anyone else around that I could put first.
I'm trying to work the kids in to my self care plans when I can. That seems to be helping a little bit, but I have a lot to learn on how to make this work.
You can live a healthy lifestyle in the real world without giving up everything that makes you happy.
