Tips for Self-Improvement and Being a Better Parent

At Gadikat we value self-improvement tremendously, it’s essential to work on yourself every-day. We realize a lot of our mother’s put themselves at the utmost bottom of their to-do list, and are expected to wear the hat for every scenario our families encounter! Whether you’re role is chauffeur, cook, maid, or tutor it’s about finding time to focus on YOU! Once you find balance with yourself you’ll see the reflection within your family and ultimately becoming a better parent.

1. Take the time for a work-out.

Go to the gym, go to that yoga class at the new studio you’ve been eyeing, go to the salsa lessons your friend bought for you last year. Whatever the case may be, get your body moving and your blood flowing. Guaranteed you will find yourself more centered with better energy and clearer head space the more you get in shape (and if you don’t know where to start we suggest a personal trainor).

2. Find community support groups and get involved.

Ever feel like you’re the only one? Well, as much as that seems real it’s not. There are other mother’s just like you in YOUR community who would love to connect. Therefore, get involved! Go to your local community center and see what activities are going on. Join meetup.com and attend them. Network and mingle at the local farmer’s markets. Whatever the situation may be do your research and find other mother’s. We like to believe women bring eachother up and usually listen better!

3. Start to meditate.

So many people practice this because it actually works! We highly suggest the Centerpointe Program created by Bill Harris. Mediations helps you clear your mind and focus on self-development. Many people claim to feel more centered and at ease after meditation.
Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know what leads you forward and what holds you back and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
-Buddha

4. Remember to feel grateful.

Studies show that the more you are grateful and recognize the good in your life the happier you will be. We suggest waking up every morning or before you go to bed at night and talk to your spouse about what you were grateful for that day. If that’s not a possibility start a journal! Feeling grateful brings positivity and radiates optimism, and let’s face it, everyone wants to be around a happy positive person!

At Gadikat we know it’s hard to take time to focus on YOU, MOM! Please take the time to take care of yourself and your little ones.

Namaste + Peace
