Are you eating a healthy, balanced diet?
Enjoy some regular exercise. For a change of pace, try getting your family moving in a fun family outing.
Sweet dreams. Avoid the temptation to stay up late for “me time.” Getting enough sleep may help you focus better during the day.

It's OK to say "NO.” To protect your energy, it’s OK to cancel a commitment. It’s OK to not answer a call. It’s OK to change your mind. It’s OK to want to be alone. It’s OK to take a day off. It’s OK to do nothing. It’s OK to speak up. It’s OK to let go.
“Laughter is the best medicine.” Find your favorite comedy and enjoy a hearty laugh. Keep a journal of the funny things your kids say.
Positive self-talk can be a powerful tool in self-care. Try practicing a Growth Mindset. Here are some examples:
- “I like to try new things.”
- “Failure offers opportunity for growth.”
- “My intelligence can be developed.”
- “I keep trying and never give up.”
- “I embrace challenges.”
