Leave the dishes for later. No one cares about how clean your floorboards are. And so what if your toddler wants to wear the same outfit 5 days in a row? Give yourself a break. Sometimes that coffee just doesn’t cut it. And meeting up with a friend with kids for ‘mutual support’ is sometimes harder than expected. Leave it. When you get a chance (if your bub no longer naps, 10 minutes of tv today isn’t going to kill them), lie down for 10 minutes and just close your eyes. I offer you this free guided meditation straight to your inbox. I just did this now and yes the house still looks feral but now I feel like I can get through the afternoon with a little more spark.
