There is SOOOOOOOOOO much going on right now to make momxiety go through the roof! Today I’m sharing some of my own, as well as other mom’s ideas, for self-care that can be done during a pandemic.
We have all had our schedules thrown off since March and when we feel like we start getting into a routine, that routine gets shifted, by work/lack of work, in-person/virtual/hybrid/canceled school, and where and how often we can leave our house.
