|Reading in the Bathtub! So sublime.|
Carving out some time just for you in your daily life is critical for your sanity.
How do you as a busy wife and mother create "ME time"; that much need time when you can do something for yourself as a woman not as a mother or wife.
In my daily chaotic as wife, mother, sister, friend, and employee who has to spend more than 3 hours in traffic daily; I have come to the realization that innovation is key if I am going to get any "ME time" at all.
Okay hear me out as I share my innovative and somewhat realistic "ME Time" creations with you.
My first "ME time zone" is a secret-shuuush! The Loo has become a kind of sanctuary for me when I need quick "ME times" amidst all the drama that goes on in my home. It is a good place to read, make calls, send texts, get on FB and or twitter and a very good place to pray. Believe me it works.
My second "ME time zone" is right in my living room; but all alone because everyone would be asleep in the wee hours of the night/early morning; During this time I usually blog, read and reply emails, research online or just watch TV.
My third and last "ME time zone! Is right in my moving car; with my driver driving I try to utilize 2-3 hours traffic jams by making calls, texting, getting on FB or twitter and reading and replying emails or just catching a well needed snooze. Yes! A Snooze at times this short snoozes re-energize you for the evening and night ahead.
I need these regular time out to remain sane and I am sure this goes for many other wives+mothers out there.
As a wife and mother how do YOU create "ME time" in your household? Go on, share your experiences here with us!
