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!
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!
