When was the last time you had “me-time” and how did you spend that time?
Um yesterday! My 8 weekly hair appointment for my roots!
What are some of your favourite ways to practice self care?
I’m terrible with exercise and diet. Shocking. My idea of self care is a packet of chocolate bullets and an entire season of Housewives on iTunes to catch up on! Including the reunion episodes!
What advice would you give to mamas struggling to create “me-time”?
Try and feel less guilt. As hard as that is. Your kids won’t remember if you weren’t there to pick them up from school once, or didn’t attend that netball game – but they will remember a smiling and not grumpy you! If I could go back in time I would give myself more time by giving my kids space to explore life without me and life in others’ care.
How do you make time in your schedule for yourself?
Well my kids are a little older now. I have one tween and two teens so I’m now trying to schedule time in with them! Early on it was incredibly difficult, and almost non existent. I had twins and another 18 months behind. I remember my fabulous mother in law would take them all for a few hours on a Wednesday and I would slip off to the movies. Bliss. That’s my spiritual home. Still to this day, the moment the music comes my whole body relaxes.
