Being a mom can be the hardest job in the world… We allowed to take a break, it doesn’t matter if you’re a stay at home mom or a working mom. We need ME time.
It’s important to make sure you have some time to yourself because if you frustrated or overwhelmed, it will affect everyone at home. At first, I used to feel guilty and never bothered about this but months later I realised everyone at home knew something wasn’t right with me. I became a grumpy person who would always complain.
Today I would like to share 5 ways you can take some “ME-time” that won’t make you feel guilty.
1. ME time is Shower time.
I know it sounds too easy and simple. But taking a long shower or a bubble bath can be heaven after a long day of dirty diapers and toddler tantrums.
2. Spend a day in PJ’s and watch movies.
This is my favorite thing to do and sometimes I do this with Kitana. It’s nothing too hectic and a good comedy movie always cheers me up!
3. Read a book.
Stay in bed a little longer with a good book on a saturday morning, while daddy makes breakfast for the kids. 😉
A box of Lindt always hits the spot for me.
5. Prepare a picnic in your backyard.
Kids love playing outside….well most of them. It’s always good to get some fresh air especially if you a stay at home mom. Relax outside with a bottle of bubbles for you and some snacks for the kids.
Mothers are the pillars of families and the cornerstones of communities. Their unconditional love never wavers, their support is enduring and their commitment is relentless.
Mother’s Day is when we get to celebrate and honour our moms as well as spoil them on this special day. This year, Lindor wants to spoil you!
