Fall Is A Time To Nurture Ourselves and Our Children
I love fall for the bountiful garden crops, fresh food and crisp fall air. It seems so natural to nourish our bodies with good food throughout the summer and fall. It is also a time to take stock of where your body is physically. Most of us have small aches and pains that we ignore or push off, thinking it will go away. Every time the season’s change it can serve as a reminder to ourselves to reassess our body and think about what is working well and what maybe needs to be addressed.
As we begin this fall, take the time to ask yourself a few questions about your own health.
While every ache and pain or mini injury isn’t a reason for huge concern, if you find yourself making excuses for recurrent aches, pains or alterations in your body habits, it is time to listen.
If You Think You Don’t Have Time For Self Care, Here Is Why Your Should Make The Time
Let’s face it… The American Way is to work and give…. Never ask for help unless it is an emergency. Take care of everyone else first… This is not a healthy habit and it is surely one we don’t wish for our children. Be the model of change for your lovely children! I think we would all agree there are only a small percentage of people who are connected with their body well and listen to it’s signals for rest, proper nutrition, exercise and medical intervention. We should want all of these things for our children. We have to lead by example. If you are a new mom, take it from a veteran mom, ask for help when you need it. No one can do it all well alone!
