When was the last time you had “me-time” and how did you spend that time?
I try to squeeze in 45 minutes- 1 hour of me time a couple of times a week after collecting both of the kids from school/care. I get them sorted with a snack and an activity and then go into my bedroom, feet up, and quietly read a few pages of my book.
What are some of your favourite ways to practice self care?
I go to the gym 3 times a week and enjoy clearing my head during the treadmilling. Another thing I do for me is my nails. After the kids go to bed I take out my little kit…file, buff, clip, polish. I find it extremely relaxing…until the next morning when I wake with sheet marks!;)
What advice would you give to mamas struggling to create “me-time”? How do you make time in your schedule for yourself?
My best advice is to squeeze in at least a little bit of time a couple of times a week. Even if it’s just like my 45 minutes with a book. Yes, there’s laundry to be done, and dinner get to get started…but you are important, too! It is amazing how that 45 minutes resets me.
