Why Food is the Ultimate Form of Selfcare

Why Food is the Ultimate Form of Self Care

As mums, it is easy to put ourselves last. We place importance on looking after almost everybody else, our spouse, partner, kids, pets, other family members and friends, and end up forgetting to look after ourselves.

The Lonely Mumpreneur Blog by Lena Queen

The Lonely Mumpreneur

Gosh it can be lonely being a single mum, and not just a single mum, an entrepreneurial single mum! This may also apply to you mum’s who are not single!

It’s simple, we feel we must sacrifice something, either our business or doing things with our children. But it isn’t the case, we can work our business AND enjoy those school breaks with our children.
