September is self-care awareness month. September is also the start of the first full month of school which means adding back the pressures of school on top of schedules already busy with things like work, sports and other extracurricular activities. This can led to rising stress levels for parents and children alike. Which makes it a perfect time for you and your children to start practicing self-care.
Self-care is any act you do take care of your own mental, physical and emotional health. It is an important skill to develop and practice on a regular basis so when life does get stressful you know what steps to take to help keep yourself from becoming overwhelmed.
