Take Time To Nurture Yourself

Think of the last time you got on a plane. Do you recall the instructions from the flight attendant?

"Passengers should be advised to don their own oxygen masks before assisting children with their masks."

Often, parents think they are being selfish when they put their own needs ahead of their children's. How effective can you be at parenting if you don't?

What measures do you take to nurture yourself? Do you read, get a massage or go to lunch with a friend? Find something that you enjoy and fit it into your schedule.

I like to soak in my whirlpool tub. It's so relaxing.
