When was the last time you had “me-time” and how did you spend that time?
I had a day off of work last week and dropped my son off at daycare so that I could get things done around the house but also have ME time ! I spent the day doing mental household chores followed by taking some self portraits, editing photos, reading a good book and sipping on a cup of coffee! Heavenly, I tell you!
What are some of your favourite ways to practice self care?
My absolute favorite way to practice self care is to have a regular routine at the gym ! I was a fitness fanatic before getting pregnant but only recently returned to a regular gym schedule once my son turned 2 years old. Not only is it so important for me to release stress physically, but I feel so powerful when I have a bit of muscle! So dang WOMAN!
What advice would you give to mamas struggling to create “me-time”? How do you make time in your schedule for yourself?
My husband is a huge part of making my me-time happen. He is so very supportive and picks my son up from school on gym days and encourages me to go out with friends . Most importantly I think it’s setting a goal and overcoming the obstacles to get there. If worst came to worst then I could still go to the gym, I would just have to drop my son off in the child care room!
