October: Self-Care for Parents

 Self Care for parents, in the spirit of community: 

  • Host a "come as you were" costume party asking your guests to dress as a former part of their life or as they believe they were in a past life
  • Clean out your pantry and donate to a local food bank
  • Eat by candle light (find a tutorial for a candle sweater here)
  • Add a pinch of cardamom to your coffee or tea
  • Find a book of poetry and read one poem a day
  • Create community by reaching out, making requests and being real. This is especially important in the postpartum year when parents can feel isolated.
  • Unplug by 7 pm
  • enjoy this gorgeous autumn song written by Ayla Nereo and joined by Ma-Muse in this performance CLICK HERE

Plan out your month with your family to fully enjoy the change in season. Print our lovely calendar and jot down a few intentions for home-care, now is a great time to clear any clutter, clothes that no longer fit and make a donation to your favorite charity to share warm layers. Write down some meal ideas for the month...yes, you may now go pumpkin crazy. Plan a few special dates with your family. We love to visit local pumpkin patches this time of year, especially the ones with tractor rides and the big corn pit!
