31 lucky MoMs will each WIN a copy of Care, the latest book from the bestselling author of Slow, Brooke McAlary, thanks to our friends at Allen & Unwin.

From the internationally bestselling author of SLOW comes a new call-to-arms for a new approach to living well – for everyone.

There is little doubt that the world is in desperate need of care; however, despite the overwhelming global problems that face us, we can find ourselves caring too much, while at the same time caring too little. By spending so much time and energy caring about the big problems of the world, we’ve lost sight of what smaller, personal acts of care can look like and just how powerful these small acts can be.

Take Care

Care: The radical art of taking time explores what it means to care in smaller ways – for ourselves, our loved ones and our communities – and discovers that caring doesn’t need to cost us our wellbeing, happiness or relationships. That making simple changes to how we live, spending more time in nature, putting down our devices and connecting with each other face-to-face, finding awe and wonder in the world around us and remembering how to play, will have ripple effects that reach far beyond our own corner of the planet.

With unwavering compassion and understanding, Brooke McAlary takes us on a journey to rediscover the small pleasures that create large ripples, reminding us that no one needs to shoulder the burden of doing it all by themselves – we only need to cast our eyes forward and start small, with care.

  • Listening. Trying not to always give advice. Sometimes just listening allows your loved one to work the issue through themselves once they’ve heard it out aloud. You might be pleasantly surprised when you check back in with them that they’ve worked things out without your advice. Just listen.

  • A call, a how are you… times are tough right now x

  • By spending quality time with them and educating my kids about things that I’ve learned along the way

  • By keeping a clean and cosy home, making them always feel welcome even if my social battery is flat, and making sure they are well fed with home cooked food!

  • Simply by telling them I LOVE them, and helping in anyway I can.

  • I put my phone down, look them in the eye and listen to their stories

  • I show my loved ones that I care by spending time with them and spoiling them from time to time. Prior to the lockdown we would go out for dinner on special occasions as a family and enjoy each other’s successes.

  • By listening well and doing small things that are appreciated. I think it the constancy of showing you care that provides comfort and support. I am not perfect. I have to reassess every so often how to improve.

  • I make a conscious effort to say it daily. Missed opportunities to make my loved ones felt loved can be regretted later in life I have learnt.

  • Quality time together to listen and share is the way I show my family I care, there is always time to cuddle, hug and listen. Quality time has more value than material objects.

  • It’s always the little things – seeing a treat that I know my kids would enjoy, saving a funny animal video to watch together, doing the dishes because it’s my wife’s least favourite chore. Anyone can do the big stuff but the tiny things take real commitment and effort.

  • I’m a nurse so I guess it comes naturally to give to my patients but family get the last end of me so I guess can I try to give my family what strangers get everyday!

  • I take the time to set aside one day a week for my daughter and I to spend time together wether it be going for coffee or dinner whatever time allows for.I we catch up on whatever’s happening in each other’s lives

  • I show my loved ones that I care by the words I chose to use and the gestures & interactions with them, such as hugs & kisses & encouraging, kind words. We all want to be loved & feel a sense of worth & belonging.

  • Beside telling them that i love them, I always consider their feelings to show then I care for them.
