Hey there, Mama!
Have you been burning the candle at both ends? Trying to be superwoman? Trying to make everything perfect for your family?
You may have heard, but in case you need a reminder, you need to STOP THE MADNESS!
You cannot possibly accomplish everything you’re trying to accomplish without taking better care of yourself. Check out this video we created about why you need to take time for yourself.
All Mamas need to learn this lesson, but if you’re a mother parenting a child who has an eating disorder like anorexia, bulimia or binge eating disorder, you need this message even more! You’re going to need to give everything you can to your family as your child heals from an eating disorder, but you can’t pour from an empty cup! You need to find ways to take care of yourself:
- Accept love from others.
- Get help when you need it.
- Take time to replenish your body, mind and soul.
Sending you all the love you deserve today!
