More Me Time...

I was sent this months REDBOOK subscription and an article hit a spot close to my heart. I wanted to share it with you all.

Too many of us don’t wind down during our downtime (Me included) –if we manage to find any downtime at all. We feel like we’re doing the “right” thing only when we’re crossing tasks off our to-do list, but that doesn’t allow any time to focus on ourselves, which is key to health and happiness. You deserve a place alone to rest, plan, read, dream, journal, or think, to turn off daily stress and just e you –not the mom-you or the wife-you, but the you you. Creating that haven doesn’t have to take a lot of time, money, or even space. Claim a corner in the living room, a nook in the attic, or a spot in the bathroom. (Ask your husband to don’t allow the kids to knock on the bathroom door, waiting for you to come out .) Just a peaceful area where you put your chair, or desk, and a few of your favorite things…Truly appreciate everything you put into your space and the moments you spend there. Know that you deserve this alone time, and do it often!
