A Note From Sabina: I’m Talking to You, Parents!

It’s pretty obvious from our magazine’s cover and the topics we tackle inside that The Mom & Caregiver magazine is for families, and for the kids, we’re raising in this wacky and wonderful world. But this month, I want to talk to you, parents.

You’ve been working extremely hard lately, trying to keep your families healthy, trying to make ends meet, and trying to keep some normalcy in your children’s lives during trying times. But remember, great parenting only happens when it starts with a healthy, happy caregiver.

So here’s what I want you to do. I want you to find some time for yourself this month. Sneak away for ten seconds or for an hour. Take care of your body and your mind. Do something you love. And eat treats, alone, without your kids begging you for some!

Grab a quick oven-baked S’more (no campfire needed) found on our event page, freeze banana yogurt icicle pops for yourself (and tell the kids they wouldn’t like them – they’re just fruit and yogurt!), or enjoy a date night dinner at home with Chef Dev’s Lobster Rolls.

OK, great start to this whole take-care-of-yourself mission. Now onto the next step – physical care. Have you been wearing a mask at work and in public for months now, and your skin is starting to show the effects? Get tips from spa director, Lily Seed, on how to relieve skin irritation

Final step: emotional care. You’ve got to lose yourself to find yourself, moms and dads! Find a hobby you’re passionate about and do it often. Learn how to shift your brainwaves during this me-time by going from beta to alpha to theta with information from Angie Aristone

So make it an August priority. Take care of yourself, have a little fun, and you’ll find you’ll be a better caregiver. We’re doing this for our kids after all!

P.S. Get busy snapping pictures of your little ones. Our 16th annual Captured Moments Photo Contest is coming soon!
