Parenting can be hard, especially when your kids are younger. This makes taking some time out for yourself even more difficult when you need it the most.
But if you do get some me-time, instead of feeling guilty about it, try to spend it in the most relaxing way possible to come out of this break refreshed and energized to tackle your life. Here are some things you can do to make the most of your me-time:
Reading can be a massive way to feel great by yourself. Whether you are a self professed bibliophile or just read a book here and there, it is always a good thing to take a copy of your favorite book and sit reading it if you are feeling stressed out with your routine.
2. Coffee time
Coffee can provide a brilliant calming start to your day. Try having the cur of coffee by yourself before your kids wake up so that you can feel alert and awake.
3. Public transport
If you commute in alone public transport, use this time to just sit by yourself. You can even plug in your earphones and let the music transport you. Or if you like, you can just look out of the window and watch the trees pass by from your window. You can also play some online bingo games to de-stress yourself.
There are very few things better than a massage. If your work involves sitting down hunched at a desk, a massage can work miracles. It is also a great cure for week long stress that parenthood brings with it.
