with your kids, schedules, etc...
Remember that children are sponges...pause and think before you react
with actions or words.
Make wellness of obvious importance in your daily routine, such as
taking a walk, a fitness class or meditating.
Find a neighbor, preferably a middle schooler, to be a mother's helper
to free up some of mom's workload at home. She can play with the kids
or help with laundry.
Remember to do something nice for yourself every day!
