Just because we are mommies, it doesn’t mean we need to put ourselves on hold. It does mean we need to choose our priorities well, make good use of “free” moments, minimize wasting time, and recognize that we don’t have to get everything done right now.
But more than anyone tip or strategy, it’s what we tell ourselves about our goals and dreams that can hurt us the most.
Give yourself permission to do something you’re passionate about. It doesn’t make you any less of a devoted mom. You don’t need to feel guilty about me-time.
Being a mom is both the greatest blessing and also the most stressful and exhausting experience. In order to thrive (not just survive) you need to take care of yourself and your dreams—without feeling guilty!
Do you have any words of wisdom to share about how to carve out some time for yourself?
According to researchers, mom’s get approximately 32 minutes of alone time each day. What’s your survival tactic?
