I’ll be the first to admit my self care is non existent. In fact the words ‘self care’ grate on me. I just haven’t got time for it.
The thing is, that’s wrong. I have got time for self care. Sitting here writing this post with Keeping Up With The Kardashians on in the background, a hot coffee by my side, is my form of self care.

Ok, in an ideal world I wouldn’t be working when I’m concentrating on self care, but my child free hours are minimal.
Writing focuses my mind and switches me off from the rest of my thoughts. I always feel a little less stressed after publishing a blog post. I suppose it’s like writing a diary. A form of release and reflection.
As I’m not so good with self care I’ve asked some fellow bloggers to share their top tips on looking after yourself as a parent. I’m hoping to take these tips on board myself and hopefully they will help you too.
