Take some time off | Life as MOM
As moms, it’s easy to focus on the never-ending to-do list and let time for ourselves go by the wayside. “Mom Time” doesn’t need to be extravagant or an all-day affair. It can be as simple as a 20-minute break from pressing matters to catch your breath and recharge for the rest of your day.

You’ll feel better; you’ll be nicer; your family will be blessed.

Stuck for an idea? Try one of these quick and easy ways to take some time off:

  1. Take a 20-minute break and enjoy a cup of something [4] — coffee, tea, whatever suits your tastes or mood.
  2. Get outside [5]! A simple walk and breathing fresh air can make such a difference.
  3. Spend time with a friend [6].
  4. Schedule some time in your day to exercise [7].
  5. Once the kids are in bed, take a bath [8]. Maybe even mix up some of this Lavender Milk Bath [9] to make it an even more pleasant experience.
  6. Pamper your feet [10]. If you’ve got the time and the funds, a salon pedicure is a wonderful treat. But, an at-home pedicure is great too.
  7. Read a good book [11].

What do YOU do to recharge your batteries?
