Are You Giving Yourself Enough Room To Be Healthy

Are you giving yourself enough room, enough time, and enough of everything to be as healthy as you could possibly be?

If we were to bet on it, we would say the answer was probably not. There are a lot of things that we, as parents, think that we can get away without doing, but it’s not true. We matter! And we need to be taking care of our health just as much as anyone else. If you would like to find out more about this topic, keep reading...

You Need A Break

The first thing that we want to say is that you need a break every now and then, and this is okay. You are allowed to need a break, even if this means a break from your kids. Your mental health is important, and if you are reaching your breaking point then you need to take a step back and calm down. Or, if you are getting to a point where you really keep thinking about having a break, then this is another sign it’s time for one.

You’re not a bad parent for needing some time, even if it’s just a few hours. Ask someone that you trust to watch your children while you take this time. You deserve a break, and if you don’t give yourself one then mentally you’re going to keep collapsing.

Stop Blocking Out Symptoms

As a mum, we are always so focused on everything that is happening around us, that we often don’t have time to understand if there is something going on with us. For example, you might find yourself ignoring symptoms that you could be sick because you don’t have time to be sick. Or, it might be the case that you are pretending something doesn’t hurt when it does, because you don’t have the time to go to the doctor. You need to stop doing this, and if you think that something might be wrong, go and see someone.

For example, tired and aching feet. If left to go on too long you could end up exacerbating an undiagnosed case of plantar facsciitis. Just make an appointment with The Foot & Ankle Clinic if this is where the problem is. Whatever it is, stop letting it get worse and get it sorted.

Try To Keep To A Routine

Finally, we recommend that you try to keep to a routine. This means doing things such as eating at the same times every day, exercising at the same kind of time every day, and trying to go to bed at the same time each night. This will help your brain to become used to these things, making them easier to do.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you need to be doing in order to give yourself enough room to be healthy. We know that things can get super complicated when you are a mum, and your first instinct is always to make sure that everyone around you has everything that they need. The problem with this is that you are important too, and you deserve to be healthy just as much as everyone else.
