2021 Goals

Last year did a number on us all, didn’t it?

For parents, 2020 delivered a one-two punch: Work from home. Wear masks. Reduce your social circle. And do it all with little ones in tow.

You’re familiar with little ones, right?

They crave wide open spaces and the opportunity to go nuts for a bit. They’re loud. (Even the quiet ones). They want to eat–like, all the time–and they need pals to pal around with. And apparently, they have to learn. Life lessons, sure, but also how to read and add numbers and maybe even work through complex issues in essay form.

All of this to say: If you found yourself worn down, worried or even an apathetic parent in the past few months, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there. But we don’t have to stay there.

We can’t say for sure when the outside world will return to normal. So we thought it might be best to focus on the inner world of mental health. Today, let’s talk through a few goals we might carry into the new year to bolster us as parents and people.

Bonus: these are worthwhile goals for non-pandemic times as well.
