Connect and Grow Magazine - Edition 10 June- July 2024

Welcome to our new section, Parents Corner.

We welcome Amazon's best-selling Author, Julie Mundy, to Connect and Grow magazine. Last month, we featured Julie’s book Bare Naked Truths in the book corner.


Every family and parent are unique!

Hey there, fabulous mamas! Feeling drained, worn out, and like you’re constantly running on empty? It's time to press pause, take a breath, and remember one crucial thing: You matter, Mama. Yes, YOU.


In the whirlwind of parenthood, it's easy to get caught up in the daily grind of taking care of everyone else and forget about the most important person in the equation – yourself. Whether you’re a working mum juggling deadlines and nappies or a stay-at-home superhero managing the chaos, the struggle is real. But here’s the deal: you can't pour from an empty cup.

So, what's the secret to being the best mum you can be? Take care of yourself first. And no, I’m not talking about splurging on luxury spa treatments or extravagant shopping sprees (unless that's your thing!). Sometimes, the simplest things can make the biggest difference – like walking, dancing like no one attractive is watching, or just enjoying a quiet moment with a cup of hot tea.


Start by carving out a little time each day just for you. Think of it as a non-negotiable appointment with yourself. Whether it’s a peaceful morning walk, a few minutes of meditation, or indulging in a good book with a cup of tea, find what recharges your batteries and prioritize it. Trust me, a well-nurtured mama is a happier, more patient, and more present mama.

Walking each day is the perfect way to have some time for YOU!

Let’s get real for a second. Taking care of yourself isn’t another thing on your to-do list; it’s absolutely necessary. When you take the time to re-energize and nurture yourself, you’ll be amazed at its ripple effect on your family.


Your kids will benefit from having a mum who is calmer, more focused, and more emotionally available. Your partner will appreciate the positive energy you bring to your relationship. And most importantly, you’ll feel more fulfilled and content in your role as a mother.


Remember, it’s okay to want more. It’s okay to prioritize your well-being and happiness. You matter, mama. So, embrace the You Matter Mama mantra and make self-care a non-negotiable part of your daily routine.


Enough is enough – it’s time to say goodbye to mom guilt and embrace the power of self-care. Take care of yourself, mama, because everyone around you benefits when you do. So, go ahead, reenergise, and watch the magic unfold. Be the best mom you can be by taking care of yourself first.


You’ve got this, mama. You matter. Now, go on, crank up your favourite tune and dance like nobody’s watching. 💃
