What would happen if we treated ourselves like we treat our kids?

What would happen if we treated ourselves like we treat our kids?

If we reminded ourselves to have a drink.

If we let ourselves take a nap when we were tired.

If we cancelled playdates when it all got too much.

If we took time to brush our hair with real care, make sure our clothes made us feel vibrant and happy, were really careful about what we put on our skin.

If we reminded ourselves (kindly) that too much screen time makes us a little irascible and starey (that’s a word).

If we made sure we got outside in nature every day.

we (really kindly) reminded ourselves that it’s cool to be kind, and that we don’t snap at those we love.

If we nourished our bodies with a rainbow of food.

If we prioritised our going to the loo above anything else before going on a long car drive.

If we read a part of a book every single day.

If we sang.

If we danced.
If we stopped thinking and started doing.
How would that feel?

Hi, and thanks so much for stopping by! I'm Laura, and I'm the founder of Power of Mum. I love a hot bath. I'm also on a mission to gently encourage a world of confident, compassionate, creative women, one client at a time. This looks like creating communities of women who support each other to live deeply contented lives, rooted in confidence and positivity. Or, to be practical, I help women find confidence and clarity to lead the lives they want, and get unstuck. I'm also a secondary school music teacher, professional classical singer, podcaster and POET.
