selfcare mummy blog series.jpg

This New Year I’m talking all about Self-Care as a mum and how important it is to take that time for us. Every week I’ll be bringing you a new guest blog post with some top tips and hopefully throughout the next few months we’ll have put together an amazing list of different ideas for self-care.

This week is Zainab Ahmad.

Tell us a bit about yourself - who you are, what you do and a bit about your family:

I own a family friendly cafe Cyckoo Hibou in Fulham where we provide a friendly relaxing environment to mums and kids. I am also a parent to a high functioning autistic young lady who struggles with anxiety but is extremely creative and gifted in many ways.

What do you do for self-care as a mum and how do you make time for self-care?

I hardly make time but when I have it I try to meditate and read books because I don’t have the luxuries of looking after my health and my sleep and my eating habits as everything else comes before.

What are your three top tips for self-care for mums?

  1. Find a time in the day everyday where you have to refocus and gather yourself. If you do it at the same time everyday it will become a habit.

  2. Remember to look after your health as without it you will lose your grip.

  3. Set an example for your kids by looking after yourself showing them why open communication and looking after one self is crucial.

Are there any products/businesses/podcasts ect that you would recommend for self-care?
