Looking after You
When it comes to priorities, many working Mums juggle work and family and their own health and well-being is a very distant third. I’ve read several articles over the years about how to manage being a working Mum and they typically give the same advice each time: that you should “put yourself first” and “prioritise having ‘me time’”. Each time I read these phrases I cringe. I absolutely agree that we should do this, but without following these comments up with practical advice on how to do it, over time each of these articles has left me feeling a bit helpless. I knew what I should do, I just didn’t know how to. This section will give you practical solutions so you can focus on looking after you.
