This week, Michelle from The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a Second Time Mom has stopped by to share one of her own Mom Made Easy tips!
The Importance of Mom “Me Time”
Once you become a mom it’s not about you anymore. Your life is turned upside down by this tiny human being and they demand all of your attention and care. Not that this is a bad thing. But sometimes… okay let’s face it, a lot of the time it can get very overwhelming. We love spending time with these little people and love taking care of them so much that sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves.
That is why it is so important to make some time for “me time”.
As a Mom, it is so important to make time for yourself. It’s good for you and for your children. I don’t know about you, but when I’m away from my kids for even just a little bit I miss them and I am so happy to see them when I am with them again! Having “me time” rejuvenates you and restores you. You’ll likely be a much happier mommy with a little “me time” every now and then.
I try to give myself some “me time” at home at least once a week. After the kids go to bed or while they are napping. I will take a warm bath and read a book, or watch a movie, or paint my toenails. Once every couple of weeks or so I try to go out of the house for some time to myself. Once I get back from being away I am so excited to see my kids and feel so refreshed!
Being a mom is so rewarding and special, but even the best moms need some time to themselves to relax and take care of themselves.
