Yes, I am a Mother who need some ME time, some fun time and some relax time. Sounds selfish? Its something I am not guilty for- Why should I if I give my 100% to my Kid when I am along with him.
I want to brighten up each moment I spend with my Kid. This won’t happen if I am not happy. I need ME time to make myself HAPPY and in return, to make my KID happy.
First thing first, no one can change this for us better than our-self.
4 things to do right away:
- Stop saying “I don’t have time“
- Find what made you happy when you are not a MOM
- Find suitable time of the day
- Go for it!
DO NOT WAIT
If you wait to give yourself time until all your work is done, you’ll never get to play.
Start doing what really makes you happy: Go for a walk, Go for a movie, Go out with Friends, A dance class, Spa therapy, Book club, Kitty party or anything which brings smile on your face.
In this race of Perfect Parenting, we lose ourselves Little by little, day by day.
WHAT “ME TIME” REALLY MEANS
Going out alone or doing something is not the only way to spend some ME time. Doing nothing and spending time with ourselves is the best way to rejuvenate amidst crying and tantrums.
It need not to wait until Kids are asleep.
Just do something for yourself while doing everything for Kids.
- While you are looking out for healthy snacks for your Kids, do same for yourself
- While your Kids are playing in the park, treat yourself with your favorite music or do workout.
- While your Kids are busy in toys, take a hot shower.
A little dose of self-care would do wonders.
