On today’s agenda is NOTHING!
🔹️I chose to take a mental health day.
🔹️I chose to put my needs first. 🔹️I chose to relax and refuel.
I’m use to the hustle and grind of doing it all (parenting, working adulting). Pushing through the fatigue and frustrations as if there’s an award for that. The real prize is in prioritizing my mental well-being and knowing when to take a time-out.
What are some ways you prioritize your mental health?
Hello and welcome to Mommy Scoreboard. It’s been several years but I remember starting my college application essay with the sentence, “You can always find me with a pen in one hand a basketball in the other.” I enjoy writing but the sport of basketball has been my ultimate joy. Fast forward and now I am the proud parent of three children, a happily married woman and an accomplished recreational basketball player. If I had to update my essay sentence it would read, “You can always find me with a pen, a basketball, a kid or two, a mobile device, a skillet, random toy part, a sippy cup, baby wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks in my hands”…WOW, have times gotten better!
