Often our lives get so busy it's hard to find time to connect with other like-minded people. If you're not already, try to set up a monthly play group with a few friends who might be going through similar challenges as you are. The kids can play and you can catch up on all the news.
Helping others - whether they're friends, family or strangers, is a great way to give back and make yourself feel good.
