During this time of stress and uncertainty, it is important for all ages to practice self-care. While adults often (maybe not often enough) take time to wind down, relax, exercise, engage in hobbies, take time with friends and find ways to de-stress, children often are not taught how to manage stress through self care behaviors. I have created a graphic to help children and teens use self care to boost mental and physical health, have purpose in their day, and to relieve stress.
What are ways you have taught your children about self-care?
How do you do self-care daily? Weekly?
Do you speak about self care openly in your home?
I would love to hear more about your self care routines.
