Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( Looking after your health and your family’s is something you take on automatically as a mother. In fact, many women put others first, and neglect their own needs, just to get sick or burn out, It is important that you look after number one, so you can look after the rest of the family. Make sure that you are aware of your body’s needs and your health risks, and have a list of people ready to contact when something goes wrong. Below you will find a few tips on how to get started.

Self Care

It is important that you learn how to care for yourself before you can become a carer for others.  Meditate to look after your mental health, and establish a healthy eating habits and exercise routine. These should not be neglected, no matter how busy you are with the kids or work. After all, burning out will take you out of the picture for longer than a spa day would. Learn to take care of your health before caring for anyone else.

Know Your Body

It is crucial that you know the needs of your body. Be aware of the food you can’t eat, or the meals that cause you discomfort, so you can avoid them. If you need sun protection, use it, and the same applies to your health supplements that can help you boost your immune system and stay healthy, even if you have to go to your kids’ school more than once a month and face all the new germs.  If you know your health, it will be much easier to manage it.

Easy Access to Medication

When you feel under the weather, you might want to get immediate solutions, instead of waiting for an appointment and the prescription to come through. Choose a medical center that offers in office dispensing, so you don’t have to queue twice and wait for the medication more than necessary.  

Simple Self Referral

When you need specialist advice or treatment, you don’t want to wait for months to get seen. Check whether or not your health insurance company offers self referral. If it does, you will not need to see a general doctor to get a letter; you can see the specialist surgery straight away, and book your appointment directly with them.

Kids’ Health Education

It is also important that you get your family members to take responsibility for their own health. If there are any community projects involving kids and providing some playful education series to them, you can take them down, so they are aware of the need of exercise and healthy eating. Your job as a mother will be much easier if everyone is on board, and they understand the reasons why you would like to get them to stay healthy.

To manage other people’s health, you will have to first learn how to take care of number one. There are plenty of online resources that will help you achieve your health goals.
