Self care awareness for busy mums

Self care awareness 


Many of us know that as parents we have to prioritise self care in order to be able to take care of others. 
But if you're really honest, how many of these self care activities, the self-compassion things, are you actually doing? The importance of self care for mums cannot be overstated. Are you meditating? Dancing? Are you doing any of the self care ideas you read about or feel drawn to?

Or like most mums, are you doing nothing? A harsh lesson that we all have to learn if we want to grow and expand is that nobody is coming to save you. Nobody is coming to do this for you, and if you reach this point in your life and you're thinking this sucks,  there must be a better way. I promise you, there is!

 

 

 The real problem though, is that when we don't give love to ourselves, then we really don't have enough to give away to others. Disconnection from self and our own needs, leads to a lack of empathy for others.

Confidence is knowing mistakes are part of the learning process

Want to know how to boost your child’s confidence? Show them that failure and making mistakes are just a part of the learning process, and you will build their self esteem.

 

Do you have low self esteem based on fear of failure?

 

In my programs for building confidence in children through music, I talk a lot about building confidence through being the model not the mirror. The aim is not to reflect back but to stand in our values and model the example to our children. See this as a challenge in your life and your parenting, you can and you will rise to it!

 

  

When Freddie Mercury sang ‘We Are The Champions’ he was saying in front of the whole world what he wanted. And nothing anyone ever created or achieved was gained without failure, perseverance, self-belief and by getting up each time you fall, and going again. 


Will you make mistakes? Yes. Will you fail big time? Yes.

Do you catastrophise? Choose confidence instead!

You don’t learn to swim by thinking about drowning. You won’t build confidence by thinking about fear.

Want to know how to boost your child’s self confidence?


Focusing yours and your child’s mind on the power you hold in any given scenario is the best way to empower yourselves, and give your child a confidence boost that lasts. Are you ready to change the way you see things forever and raise a wholehearted, confident child or confident children who can live and love to their fullest expression?

 

 

 

Do you catastrophise? Do you find yourself thinking ‘what if..’ and then listing all the potential negative outcomes in your head? This just sets your mind in a loop of fear-based thinking, lacking confidence, and low self esteem.

As an adult and a parent you have a responsibility to shape your child’s mind, and to build their self-esteem, and give them the tools to continue to build their own self worth.

Our lives are based on...

Before Your Child Turns 7 You Can Affect Their Perception And How They Show Up In The World

Before your child turns 7 you have this glorious opportunity to shape how they see the world around them, and this in turn affects whether they see the world as scary or friendly, and whether they feel anxious or confident in life. This is ultimately going to affect how they show up in the world.

Your Language You Use Around Your Children, Affects Their Self-Esteem

When your children are in the theta brainwave state (under age 7) this is when they're most suggestible. Always bring your attention to how you are defining yourself and your children, because that is going to be the model of how they define themselves, who they think they are, and what they think they are capable of.

The Optimum time for Parenting with Self-Esteem in Mind, is Before Age 7.

Before age 7 building children's confidence and self esteem is crucial. Children under 7 believe everything they're told... about themselves and about the world around them and they accept this as fact. This becomes their model of the world. Their brains are still in a hyper-learning phase with much slower brainwaves, called Theta. This is the same brainwave state that as Hypnotherapists, we relax adults to, in order to to access their subconscious mind and reframe moments that have kept them stuck.  This is why I work with parents of children under 7, to make sure we instil them with confidence and self esteem for life, as their belief systems are forming.
