Put yourself first
According to Burdumy, this is akin to running on empty and trying to get as far as we can without refueling. The bottom line is that we can take care of others better when we first take care of ourselves. This is a lesson that many parents still have to learn because their days are centered around their kids. By taking care of yourself, you’ll be a better caregiver.
To do this, carve out time in your day to take a short walk, exercise at the gym, read, or call a friend to chat. Me time gives us more energy to share with our family.
