Self-care extends beyond emotional wellness but also includes physical wellness. It’s an essential element to healthy living. While for some physical wellness means getting more sleep or meditating, for others it means exercising as part of their daily routine.

We know that as a special needs parent your time may be limited, however there are ways to squeeze in quick yet beneficial exercises that increase your energy, reduce stress and improve your overall health.

Beyond being a source of physical healing, it can lead to emotional healing. Many report that the time spent exercising allows for moments of reflection and clarity. So as you can see, fitness is an essential component to self-care and ultimate wellness.
