As busy moms, we all know that it can be hard to find 2 minutes of peace in your day. But finding time for ourselves is essential. We can’t be the best parent, friend, homeschooler, or even just plain healthy, if we don’t take care of ourselves. So how do you find the time for self care, in the middle of the chaos of parenting, homeschooling, housekeeping, and all the other things you do?
I know how hard it is to find the time for yourself when you don’t have time to breathe.
Some days, it’s just too overwhelming. Other days, I can feel like I’ve got it all under control. That usually only lasts until the next diaper blowout or meltdown. But I’ve also learned how to take care of myself, so that I can continue to take the best care of my family.
As a single mom, I’ve had to get creative about finding the time. I’m guest posting over at Seeking Simple Life, about the tricks I use to find the time to take care of myself in the middle of the chaos that is my life.
If you don’t have the time to catch your breath, here’s a hint: you have to make it a priority. So start by taking two minutes to grab a drink of water and read this post. I promise you, you’ll learn something.
And take a moment to breathe.
