Parents are constantly caring for their family and may get run down from all the responsibilities. Special need parents do not have the time to get run down and should remember to take care of themselves. Doing this will keep parents and their family (children and spouses) happier. This blog here describes caring for yourself and gives some ideas on how to do so. It talks about getting enough sleep, proper meals, and developing deeper relationships with friends. Parents can join support groups or even just grab coffee with a friend to get some much needed social time. Parents can also do some yoga or just relax by catching up on their favorite show. What do you do to care for yourself? What do you enjoy doing when you get some alone time? What advice do you have for other parents pushing themselves too far?
