15 Ways to Be Kind to Yourself by The Robyn Nest [photo by Kris Krug via Flicker CC]There are only so many hours in a day and it’s non-negotiable that I spend nine of them in an office and two of them driving to and from the office. You know that sleep-deprived mother with the unintentionally hairy legs and ashy knees who hasn’t done a push-up in years?  I don’t like being that woman but I know her well.  What follows are 15 little acts of kindness we can give ourselves each day to ensure that we don’t slip through the cracks of mommy neglect.

I did not know who I was before becoming a mother. My kids wear cloth diapers and eat organic food, for the most part. The chemical-free mattresses they sleep on were more than our mortgage payment. I’m a big believer in eating local, grass-fed happy animals. I like to buy our produce from a farm, preferably one right up the road. I don’t drink the water here. I’m worried about the world’s honeybees. I believe that homemade chicken bone broth, a shot of apple cider vinegar, and an Epsom salt bath can cure what’s ailing you. I believe in coconut oil and I believe in elderberry syrup. I believe in a higher power. I believe in writing it all down because you will never remember it later.
