When was the last time you had “me-time” and how did you spend that time?
The last time I had me time was yesterday. I came down with a horrific stomach flu a few days ago, and my wonderful assistant, Bonny took care of my son all day so I could have a nurse give me fluids and let me cry in front of her. I spend so much time looking after Arthur and trying to micromanage that I run myself down. Not proud of that.
What are some of your favourite ways to practice self care?
My favorite way to self care is to get in the ocean – swim underwater for as long as I can or sit on a surfboard and just let the water carry my body.
What advice would you give to mamas struggling to create “me-time”? How do you make time in your schedule for yourself?
I still struggle with me time cause when I am away from my son I don’t feel “me” anymore, which may be as big a problem for a lot of moms as struggling to create a time that relaxes them.
I get in the bath. Or ask a friend to take a walk with me. Doesn’t happen often enough.
Make sure you reach out to the friends you have. You need them. I do.
Hey. It’s a struggle. But a struggle like no other. Lucky moms.
