Does anyone else remember their parents telling them “Go play and come back when it gets dark”?! I remember playing outside with all the neighborhood kids and only coming back for food and water until it was dark. Yes… I know.. times have changed. We are a little more scared these days to let our kids be alone outside. I agree with that. HOWEVER, we can at least help the situation by making plans to get outside with our kids!
There are so many benefits to getting outside:
Use our Mommy-do journal to plan time outside daily and keep yourself accountable by checking it off. Schedule adventures not only in your area but explore beyond that with your family!
You got this Momma!
"I never knew how hard it would be to take care of myself after having kids..."
"I feel like the whole day goes by and I have no idea what I did"
"Why didn't anyone tell me how lonely motherhood is?"
"I just can't seem to motivate to go outside or talk to other moms."
"Why didn't my pediatrician walk me through understanding the development milestones for each month?"
“I am taking care of myself today!”
Do those words sound familiar? I was admittedly the first time mom who would tell myself this message repeatedly, yet I would never follow through. When it got to the point where I felt like I couldn’t recognize myself anymore both inside and out, I decided that I needed to be done with the excuses. I didn’t want to glance in the mirror and see a worn down, tired, and unhealthy version of myself.
