Taking ‘Me’ Time

 

As a mom it can be hard to find time to do things for yourself, but it is very important to get that time to yourself. With little ones at home it can be hard to find time to pee alone, let alone have some time carved out just for you.

Sit down and think about what you would like to do. Be sure to communicate what you need to your spouse or significant other so that they can help you get that time to yourself. Everyone is different, some people may only need 5-10 minutes to recharge and others may need an afternoon to themselves. After you have decided what you want to do add it to your schedule.

If you only have a few minutes to spare here are some things you can do:

Journal.

Meditate.

Drink a cup of tea or coffee alone.

If you have a little more time here are some fun options:

An afternoon at your favorite coffee house with a book.

Catching up with a friend over lunch or dinner.

Going to a spa for a day of relaxation.

Hitting the gym or yoga studio.
