Join Susie And The Joy Of Parenting Community for 14 Days of Self Care While Raising Money And Awareness To Prevent Domestic Violence During the COVID Lockdown
The COVID Crisis is showing us how important Self Care Really is.
But what happens when we put our children’s needs ahead of our own? When caring for children is above personal wellbeing, family life can get thrown off kilter fast. We may become so depleted that parenting with joy is impossible. We may even make plans to improve our health, fitness, friendships, and relationships - but only after the kids are happy, healthy, and well cared for.
I’m ready to start eating better...once the kids get older and I have more time to cook.
I’m ready to start exercising again…but I can’t fit it in.
I’d love to have more fun…but by the end of the day I am exhausted.
We all know that, when you are in an airplane and the oxygen masks come down, we have to put our mask on first before we can take care of our children.
It is the same for self-care. We can’t be fully present and available for our children if we don’t take good care of ourselves.
You know you’re capable of even higher levels of energy and enthusiasm each day. How can you get there? Let's start with more self care. Let’s stop putting off taking care of ourselves until tomorrow. Because in the end, the parents are the adults, and the parents lead the way.
We created the 14 Day Self Care Challenge for that parent and for that reason—to help you create a better life and a happier family during the COVID Pandemic Lockdown.
In this challenge, each day you’ll be inspired to:
✓ Stop Procrastinating Self Care
✓ Be More Generous and Kind to Yourself
✓ Bring Even More Joy to Parenting
✓ Learn New and Fun Self Care
✓ Have more energy and enthusiasm
✓ Become the Best Version of Yourself...
Here are just a few of the benefits of joining Susie on an adventure of exploring different ways to take care of ourselves.
We know we need self-care every day and we love our families so much that sometimes we put aside our own needs. Use this challenge to create a Self-Care Habit that lasts.
We all have the "same old" self-care routines. Try new ways of recharging your batteries and when the challenge is done, keep the ones you like best.
Our children watch us to learn how to be an adult. During this challenge you will not only model a great self care routine, you will also have opportunities to talk to your family about the important of self-care.

Research shows 1 in 4 adult American women and 1 in 7 adult American men have experienced domestic violence.
Disasters – whether hurricanes, earthquakes or pandemics – disrupt social and physical environments and increase families’ vulnerabilities to domestic violence.
All proceeds from this challenge go to the Not For Profit No Silence No Violence to reduce the incidence, trauma and stigma of domestic violence. https://www.speakingoutnsnv.org/
