When was the last time you had “me-time” and how did you spend that time?

That is a good question! I had about 15 minutes on Saturday night after I arrived home from working on the 6PM bulletin at 7 News Sydney, to shower and get changed for a rare date night with my husband, while my father kindly looked after the baby.

What are some of your favourite ways to practice self care?

I love to read a good book, and weirdly reading news articles is very indulgent for me and I absolutely love perusing papers such as the New York Times or Washington Journal.

And I can’t go past a good massage!

What advice would you give to mamas struggling to create “me-time”? How do you make time in your schedule for yourself?

I think being able to ask for help, and letting other people help you is important. So many women struggle to say “yes” to accepting help from a friend or relative, but in order to preserve your sanity, it is key!
