Self Care – Making Time for Yourself

March 14, 2017|Posted in: Choosing Happiness, Healthy, Beautiful You!

Self Care

Me Time

Self Care

Everyone deserves some “Me Time” once in a while.  But, if you’re a mom it‘s probably a very rare moment indeed when you find yourself alone with nothing you have to do.  It’s important to make a point of arranging time for self care.  You’ll be a happier, more productive person if you do,  So, plan a night when your hubby will be away and send the kids to a sleepover at a friend’s house or to grandma’s house for the night so you can have some much deserved, and undoubtedly needed, alone time.  Just relax and enjoy your own company!

Self Care Ideas!

  1. Workout, Go for a Bike Ride, Take a Walk in the Park
  2. Pop Popcorn; Turn Out the Lights and Watch a Good Movie
  3. Take a Bubble Bath by Candlelight
  4. Cook an Amazing Meal, Set a Nice Table, Play Soft Music and Enjoy!
  5. Buy Some Flowers and Plant Them in Your Garden
  6. Go to the Craft Store, Pick out a Fun Project, Go Home and Create!
  7. Take Home a Good Book from the Library, Wrap up in a Blanket & Get Lost!
  8. Take a Nap
  9. Clean your House Spotless, It Feels Amazing!
  10. Write a Letter to a Friend, use Clip-art, Bright Colors, Quotes, etc.

    I’m a huge believer in having ‘me time’. It is so important to take time out to do something for ourselves. It certainly makes us happier and in turn is a positive affect on our family. Your 10 ideas are great and easy to achieve.
