Support For Mums During Lockdown
What a time we are all going through. No matter where in the world you may be, we are all in the throes of life-changing events. I know from family, friends and my group that many mums are really struggling with dealing with not only the situation but also the uncertainty.
I thought now was the time to start putting together some links to support. Now, while we all think clearly and need help. All the links in this article are to offer help and support to us as we go through this together. It is only as families, communities, groups and countries work as one that we will get through. So, let's see what support is out there.
Taking A Mindful Approach
Firstly, from me. There are lots of resources here to help, I have blogs with activities to help keep the kids entertained. GRAB THE FREE ANXIETY PACK with simple exercises to cope with the building anxiety. There is an audio download of guided meditation, again just to help create some moments of calm.
Looking After Your Health
I have a lovely friend who also happens to be a guru on nutrition. She has got a fab download on techniques to boost our systems, working on our body's immunity. You can grab that one here.
Groups For Mums
I think this is one of the main things that has helped me over the last couple of weeks. The amazing support that I have seen in several groups has been really uplifting. I've put a link to my favourites below.
Mindful Parenting - Mindful Tips for parents and their children
The Nourished Body - Nutrition and wellbeing support
Take Your Business Online - Support for mums in business who need support and solutions
Work Life Thrive - For Mums who are balancing working life and mum life
Rise Up Business Club - Another one that is packed full of support for mums during this difficult time.
Activities To Keep The Kids Busy
Just in the last few days, there is an amazing number of support groups packed full of FREE stuff and also online courses, classes, clubs and activities that are popping up all over Facebook. I have put a couple of links to ones in the UK, as more come out then I shall update.
If you are part of any group, business or enterprise and would like me to add you, please email me.
Family Lockdown A fab group with a huge amount of things being posted every day. Plenty to keep the kids busy and learn too!
Plan C Another Uk group but again is packed full of links and lots of things to do.
Homework Fairy Godmother - A lovely lady who has lots of resources for help for those about to start homeschooling
As I come across more links and groups and I continue to update this, so do keep checking back. There is plenty of support out there, so please do not feel that you are facing this alone.
I hope that this at least gives you some ideas on where to start. Keep safe and if you would like even more ideas and tips then do sign up to the newsletter. I send this out to my list with specials that only they receive.
