5 things I do to take care of my family + 5 things I do for myself

I love being a mum, but it’s really hard work sometimes.

Just the day in, day out relentlessness of it.

No chance to stay in bed.

Making sure we don’t run out of toilet roll.

Or clean socks.

Remembering which day is P.E.

One of the hardest things is the expectation that you always put your children first. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t, but not always.

We all need to look after ourselves, and not as an after-thought.

If you’re a mum, and you’re feeling tired and resentful, you’re not going to enjoy spending time with your children (or anyone else for that matter).

I don’t even think about being the perfect mum.

It’s not going to happen and I’d rather be myself, quite frankly.

That said, I care a lot about my family.

Here are the five things I try to do as often as I can.

5 things I do to take care of my family

These are the things that I try to focus on. I’m not saying I do them all of the time, but when I do, they help me feel good about myself as a mother.

  1. Making simple home cooked meals.
  2. Eating together as a family.
  3. Going for walks in the park with our dog.
  4. Chatting, telling stories, sharing memories and making jokes.
  5. Reading bedtime stories.

5 things I do to take care of myself

If I’m going to have the energy and enthusiasm to do any of those things, I also need to take care of myself. I don’t have the time or money to do them every week, but when I do, they help me feel good about myself. When I feel good about myself, I am happier and enjoy being a mother more.

  1. Listening to music.
  2. Seeing my friends.
  3. Dancing.
  4. Wearing nail polish.
  5. Having an early night.

And another thing

Something else we do is to go and see our homeopath.

One of the things I’ve appreciated about having a family homeopath is having genuine continuity of care.

My children have been seeing our homeopath since they were babies so she knows them really well.

As a homeopath myself, I know how much we benefit from her insight, even though I also prescribe them remedies myself from time to time.

Homeopathy for you

Homeopathy isn’t just about fixing symptoms, it’s about helping us to feel as good as we know we can.

Homeopathy helps us feel happy, healthy and full of enthusiasm for life.

Is Homeopathy
for you?

I can help you:

  • Balance your hormones
  • Get a good night’s sleep
  • Feel calm and energised
  • Have nice clear skin

Am I right for you?

I know how it feels to have a list of things you want to sort out so you can just get on with life.

It’s important for you to choose the right person to work with and I know that’s a big decision.

Tell me what’s happening with you and ask me any questions you have on your mind.

I promise to be honest and open about what you can expect from working with me.

If I’m not sure I’m a good fit, I’ll say so.

If it’s easier to email, I’m happy to chat that way too.

I look forward to hearing from you,

  • In addition to my skin clearing and being pretty much spot-free, my periods have become more regular and my pet allergies and hay fever have disappeared.

  • One of the best professionals I’ve ever seen, who is willing to listen and investigate beyond what is obvious. I’d recommend her time and time again.

  • I saw Tracy for perimenopause and urinary tract issues and I feel so much better. My energy levels have transformed, my hormones are way more stable and my UTI issues have gone completely.
