Self-Care for Autism Parents: 5 Simple Ways to Reduce Stress

Listen to soothing music or read a book

Relaxing your mind and body all the while reducing stress can be achieved by listening to instrumental and soft music. Music has the ability to quickly shift our mood and affect our subconscious mind where negative thoughts feed on our fears. Even cuddling up with a good book is a great and healthy way to escape from day to day stresses that come from being the parent of a child with ASD.
