Finding the elusive life balance has always been one of the most stressful aspects of parenting, but there’s good news:
Moms and dads are starting to prioritize their personal mental health.
To maintain and improve mental wellness, activities range from charting emotions, to learning about mindfulness and even escaping online. Although “stroller moms” have, by definition, been accompanied by children, more parents are involving older kids in the various activities. As a result, learning about mood boosting and wellness actions is happening at an earlier age, perhaps giving the next generation of parents a head start on healthy living.
That’s a hopeful thought for the beginning of a new year.
