As parents, it’s important to take care of ourselves, especially after an all day adventure with our families. This post contains self care tips for parents and is sponsored by LivRelief.
Living so close to all the theme parks in Florida is awesome especially since my family loves going on rollercoasters and other rides that make us scream as loud as we can! We like to get there early and make a whole day of it. After it starts getting dark we pile back into our car and head home.
After a full day of being jostled around on rides, walking up to ten miles in the parks, and standing on lines for food, attractions and the restrooms, self care for parents is super important.
Self care for parents
That’s my husband, aka the life of the party. He’ll do almost anything for a laugh and going with him to the theme parks is like having on-demand entertainment.
The only problem is he thinks he’s still 25, but his body knows better. When we get home after a day at the parks, there are certain things he does to ease his muscle and joint pain.
1. Spend 15 minutes (more if you have extra time) stretching your feet, legs and hips. Do a combination of sitting and staring stretches. Hold each stretch for 8-10 seconds while breathing deeply.
2. Drink lots of water during the day while at the park, but make sure it doesn’t stop there. Continue drinking water after you get home to hydrate yourself and avoid muscle cramping.
3. Ask one of your kids to help massage the affected area. If you have a massage roller let them use it.
4. Take a cool shower and after you dry off, apply some LivRelief pain relief cream to areas that are sore or ache. Liv Relief Ultra Strength Pain Relief Cream helps him with the stiffness and pains that come from hanging upside down in a shark’s mouth.
LivRelief can help with muscle and joint pain that is common with arthritis, bruises and sprains. It’s long lasting and non-irritating on your skin. For anyone concerned with the effects of certain chemicals, you’ll be happy to know that LivRelief does not contain paragons or sodium laurel sulphate (SLS). Its safe for children over two years old also and can be reapplied up to three times a day.
It’s conveniently available for immediate purchase on Amazon.
Having fun with your family creates beautiful memories that they’ll always remember but you have to take care of yourself also.
