Enhance Your Parenting Skills (By Taking Better Care of Your Mental Health)

43

Introduction 

As much as we don’t like to admit it — moms (and dads) need support too. We often become consumed in our daily lives with caring for our families and children. As a result, many of today’s parents are quickly heading towards burnout, caregiver burnout, and other forms of mental health issues like anxiety and depression. In this article, we discuss how taking better care of your mental health can help improve your parenting. 

Reduce Anxiety, Clear Foggy Thinking and Improve Your Mood

If you’re like many of today’s busy parents, you have a million things to do (and not enough time to get it all done). It’s no secret that the world is becoming busier everyday. This can take a toll on your mental health, close relationships, and parenting. With so much going on, it’s no surprise that more medical professionals are referring their patients to therapy as a form of treatment. 

How does a reduction in anxiety symptoms, clearer thinking and an improved mood sound? These are just a few of the effects of improving the quality of your mental health can have. Taking time out to chat with a licensed therapist about troubling family woes or life issues can work wonders for relieving symptoms of anxiety, depression, and burnout. Getting access to licensed and certified mental health care providers is easier than ever. 

Micro-Therapy Sessions: Just What The Doctor Ordered

Leading online therapy providers like Talkspace and BetterHelp are making it possible to take part in psychotherapy from the privacy and comfort of your own home. This makes it easy for stay-at-home moms and dads with limited childcare options to take part in mental health counseling or therapy. 

Working parents can also take advantage of micro-therapy sessions during breaks, lunches, and downtime. Online therapy sessions can last for as few as 10-15 minutes per session. When you get therapy online you give yourself the opportunity to provide yourself with much needed mental health care and support from an unbiased third party. 

Pass The Benefits of Improved Mental Health Along To Your Kids 

Reaping the benefits of taking better care of your mental health doesn’t end with you. Your kids get to experience the best version of you when you’re less stressed, anxious, and worried. It’s natural to want (and need) to take time for yourself to unwind. Some parents (especially moms) feel guilty about needing to take a break to destress. It’s important to understand that taking time for yourself is essential (and often necessary) for creating a healthy and balanced life.

The best part about improving your mental health is that everybody wins. You get to feel like the best version of yourself. Your children, spouse, and family get to experience the best version of you. After taking part in therapy, you may even find that your work-life balance improves as you begin to identify (and eliminate) stressors as they come up in your life. Taking part in individual, couples, and family therapy can teach parents new coping strategies for dealing with parenting issues. 

It may surprise you to learn that the issues you thought were all your own — are much more common than you thought.
