So maybe a hot, sudsy soak in the tub with a glass of wine and a good book might not fit into your schedule more than once or twice a year (if that)! But that doesn’t mean you can’t find little moments in every day for yourself. It may be five or ten minutes here and there, but you can make them count.
1. Look for some quiet places along your commutes. Look for the parks in your areas. They might be little ones that are a block wide in the middle of the city. They could also be something more expansive with trails to explore. This is a good chance to stretch your body and your mind by looking for all of the hidden things to discover along every path.
2. Stop off at a library. Just looking at books can be relaxing, even if you don’t take anything home. Try a non-fiction category that you haven’t considered to be interesting in the past. Browse for the sheer pleasure of having no goals to meet for just a few minutes.
3. Go to a mall to people watch. I'm sure that this sounds like the most brainless thing possible. That’s the point! You need to get away from your life for a few minutes. Watching other people live their lives is one way to do it. Grab a coffee and a seat and let the world entertain you for a little while.
The idea behind all of this is to find a few minutes every day when you can step away from the frenzy of your life and take a break from being a mom. You deserve it more than you will ever know! by Ben x7915
