You’ll be busy with medications, appointments, therapies and helping your child cope with the everyday challenges that are coming at them.
Under this sort of pressure it is easy to forget about looking after yourself. It can just feel a bit too hard.
I have found an option that works really well for me. I go to Dawn Meader’s art classes. These transport me into a nurturing place, full of colour and friends.
The classes are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced artists. You don’t have to worry about what you’ll paint. Dawn has developed a delightful way of working that tends to sweep you along and get your creative juices flowing.
You will find the stress and the worry gets lost in the music and the visualisations and the cups of tea.
I’ve made some lovely friends at the classes and found myself laughing even when things at home have been pretty stressful.
I’ve done several of Dawn’s classes over the years and I feel grateful for all the positive energy those experiences have given me.
So if you are in Perth and looking for some fun self care why not check out what’s on offer from Dawn.
