As a parent, taking care of yourself is not optional. It’s not selfish. It’s vital to your physical health, mental health, and the health of your family. In order to do good, it helps to feel good — and it’s fundamental to modeling healthy self-care for our kids. And yet, many parents dismiss “self-care” as a luxury without recognizing how important it is for the well-being of their families – even if it can be incredibly difficult to do.
In this inspiring, impactful, and profoundly important conversation, Penny Williams and Elizabeth Brink discuss what self-care really means when raising complex kids, and offer suggestions for prioritizing it when adults have complex issues like ADHD and Anxiety, ourselves. They talk about mindset, self-sabotage, somatic and body-based healing, giving yourself some grace, and so much more.
