Emotional Self-Care for moms

During parenthood, it is easy to forget to take care of yourself.  You end up feeling drained, irritable, and not the parent you want to be.  To avoid getting there, it is important to take time to nurture yourself, be kind to yourself, and to plan ahead.   Self-compassion is an important part of taking care of yourself by being kind to yourself. 

 

In this workshop, you will develop your own self-care plan along with learning exercises to increase self-compassion.
