As working mothers we work hard every day to maintain our household, care for our children, and maintain our relationships with our husbands and friends. But what do we do for us? We are so busy caring for others we forget to care for ourselves, to take a little “me” time.
“Me” time, what a concept! It should be a daily occurrence, a time we set aside for ourselves. Set out and plan a block of time, even just 15 minutes, for your “me” time each day. Use this time to meditate, take a walk, take a hot bath, or even just a power nap.
Sit down and make a list of some things you’d like to do for yourself and how much time you need to do them. Make it a point to schedule in at least one of these things into each day. “Me” time can be shared too, get a group a friends together and take a walk or call a friend just to chat.
I have made it a point to do something to improve myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually each day. I start my day by writing down what I will do for me in each of those categories and at the end of the day I can review this and see just how much I was able to accomplish. This can be a real boost to the ego!
I think you will find as I have that just taking a little time for yourself each day can work wonders in improving your outlook on life and your attitude.
