Sensory Self Care for Busy Moms
SIMPLE SENSORY SOLUTIONS FOR MOMS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
Do you ever find yourself thinking …
I can't take my kids noise anymore!
I just need a moment to myself
I wish everyone would stop touching me
What if the reason for you losing your cool with your kids was actually because of your body saying
“Hey, hi…I can’t have this loud noise in my ear anymore. It’s too much and we need a moment to pull ourselves back to ourselves!”.
You knew some tools on how to actually calm your senses without becoming angry mommy.
Not walking away from your kids fussy moments feeling like you messed up again.
As moms we have to recognize that our sensory needs are not just a matter of mindset. They are primitive body processes. It’s easy for us to snap or feel overwhelmed when our toddlers have a tantrum or during those “witching hours” and chalk that up to us being “bad moms”. Obviously we can all work on improving our own emotional regulation BUT it is time to realise that our sensory needs also have to be on the agenda.

Meet the Author
Hi, I’m Holly
I am a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and mom two sweet (and very active) toddlers. After working in early childhood development for 10 years I thought having my own kids would be a breeze. Haha, right?
Motherhood is anything but easy breezy. Toddler tantrums, trying to satisfy all of your toddlers minute to minute needs and on top of that being a gourmet chef. It can be overwhelming. I am on a mission to simplify the little years for mamas, just like me. A huge component of that is understanding our new role as mothers, how it evolves with each stage of development and how we can care for our own needs in the midst of these very full years.
I believe that managing our own sensory needs is one of the most critical acts of self care that mothers of small humans need to be prioritising. The strategies that I share in this book are a result of problem solving around my own experience of sensory overwhelm. These simple practices have hugely impacted my daily capacity and ability to show up for my loud, messy and colorful little humans.
My hope is that they will do the same for you.
