Desperate to slow down and get some time to relax? Let’s get clever about it! Today we’re talking ways for moms to find more “me time” every day.
If you’re anything like me, being a new parent meant everything was about the baby. As your child grows up, you gain more confidence as a parent. Maybe you have more kids, life gets busier… and you start to realize, you need time to focus on yourself too. As I type this, I’m taking some time to myself while the hubby takes care of the kiddos. I’ll come back refreshed and ready to be MOM again.
So how do we find time to relax and recharge? Well, we have to get clever about it.
Clever Ways For Moms to Find More “Me Time”
- Early in the AM or late PM. Preferably early in the morning (to avoid being a zombie), take some time before the kids wake up to sit with a cup of coffee and a good snack. Lately I’m obsessed with these Oui™ by Yoplait®, a French-style yogurt inspired by Yoplait’s traditional French recipe. I pick them up at Jewel-Osco stores, and they’re the perfect treat for taking time to myself. I absolutely love the thick & creamy, cuttable texture. And with 12 flavors—Vanilla, Strawberry, Black Cherry, Blueberry, Lemon, Coconut, Raspberry, Key Lime, Peach, Pineapple (new flavor), Mango, and Blackberry—there’s enough variety to enjoy one every day.
2. Head to the park with earbuds. When you & the kids need some fresh air, pack it up and head to the local park. Pop one earbud in and listen to music or a podcast while the kids run out their energy. So simple and so effective. Refreshes you right up.
3. Babysitting Swap. Childcare is expensive, but I’m sure you have a friend or neighbor with kids who would do a babysitting swap so each of you could an hour or two to yourselves. And bonus, the kids get playmates to keep them busy!
4. Limited Time Toy Bin. Fill a box, bin, or bucket with inexpensive toys/crafts that the kids can only access when you give permission. That way, you can pull out the special toy bin when you’re desperate for a break and you know it’ll keep their attention. It gives you a few minutes to yourself, guilt-free. Put your feet up and take a tip from me—grab a Oui to enjoy. You’ll love the subtly sweet, fresh taste.
