Why It's Needed
If you find yourself feeling stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed more often than not, this kit will help guide you back to a place of balance.
Parents and caregivers tend to focus on the need of others—their children, their partners, and their friends and family—and too often their own needs are put on the back burner. Research shows, however, that a healthy caregiver is one who is able to prioritize their own self-care, which means taking time to meet their individual needs and to destress after a long, tiresome day. This is also time for a parent or caregiver to regain their energy after feeling overwhelmed or drained from taking care of others.
As you read through this kit, remember that you cannot effectively care for others if you are not caring for yourself. For many, this is easy to forget—so be sure to incorporate these self-care activities into your routine to better support both you and your family.
Follow these easy steps to set yourself up for success.
