Taking Time for ME!

We’ve all heard the saying “If Momma’s not happy, nobody’s happy”, right?

Well, we kind of live by that at our house!  I fully believe that I need to take some time for myself every day (even if it’s just 10 minutes), so that I can really be there for my family, and their needs! 

Makes sense, right?

Here are some of the things I do, to TAKE TIME FOR ME!  Some are more time intensive than, others.  It really just depends on the day, and what is going on at the time.

1.  Take a BATH

I’m a bath girl.  I LOVE to take baths.  Sometimes it’s a quick 15 minute soak.  I lock the door, light a candle and breath.  Other times, it’s a 2 hour bath with a book.  Once again, it depends on the day.  Whether it’s a quick bath in the middle of the day, or a long bath at the end of the day, I ALWAYS feel relaxed after!


Right now, I am really into ZUMBA classes.  It’s a blend of latin/hip hop and I can run to a quick ZUMBA class and lose myself for 45-60 minutes!  I love it!  There is something about exercising (running, aerobics, weights) that gives you such a feeling of accomplishment!  I feel like I can tackle anything (laundry? cleaning? cooking?) after a little exercise!

3.  READ

I’m an avid reader.  Always have been,  It is something I can do anywhere (in the bath, in car line, at the dentist office, at softball practice, ANYWHERE), and I do it often.  Sometimes it’s a page here and there, a chapter every few days, and sometimes, it’s just a skim through a magazine or catalog.  Whatever it is, I try and enjoy whatever time I can find. 

There are so many other ways to TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF!  I would love to hear what you do, to take time to relax, even for just 5 minutes a day! 

You know what they say:

If Momma’s not happy, nobody’s happy!
