#TuesdayTip: Be present, not perfect. One piece of advice I heard from a NICU mom once was "wherever you are, be there fully." It's easy to be in one place, but be thinking of all the other things that need our attention: work, relationships, family. What she meant was, if you're in the NICU caring for your baby, be present in the NICU. If you're at home caring for other children, be present with them (and know your baby is in good hands in the NICU while you do so). If you're spending time with your partner, be fully present with them in order to nurture your connection, even if it's a little hospital cafeteria date. Do you struggle to remain present while tending to all the aspects of your life? Let's talk about it!
