Take half an hour (or more) to do something deeply loving and relaxing and just for you: having a lovely long hot bath, going for a nice walk, meditation or yoga, going to your favourite cafe for half and hour today, whatever jumps to mind… and to use this time to reflect on all you have achieved as a parent; to put to one side for half an hour (at least) the worries and the doubts and the negatives that play out recurrently in your mind and consider what’s worked well:

  • Qualities and characteristics you admire about your children
  • How accomplished they are in certain areas or fields of expertise
  • All you have provided for them that they have loved and grown through
  • How you have shown up relentlessly as a mum/dad/carer trying to do the right thing
  • And anything else that comes to mind
