Spend time with friends: As a parent, most of your day is spent carting your kids around from activity to activity and friend’s house to friend’s house. And, you do this because you know the value of friendships and want to facilitate those relationships for your kids. However, often as parents, your friendships are put on the back burner, but really, they should be no less important. So, give yourself the gift of friendship and make an effort to get together with friends at least once a month. Spending time with friends is energizing and provides you with a much needed support system.
