Simple Ideas for Self Care

Does it feel like you have very little time for self care right now? Life has certainly changed a lot in the last few weeks around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many of us working moms are suddenly finding ourselves needing to homeschool and entertain our children while still maintaining our job at home. It may feel like there’s little time for just yourself right now. However, it’s important to also take care of your wellbeing during this uncertain time.

Then I decided it was time to get outside and work in the garden. This is my place that soothes my soul. As I sowed seeds I reminded myself that soon there will be beautiful flowers blooming and life will move on. Sometimes we all need a little pick-me-up.
