Working Mommies have a wonderfully rewarding job, but it sure is a demanding one! It is important to try and find time where you can relax and take care of yourself too. Mommies who find a minute of ‘me time’ for a hobby are likely to be happier mommies! This is more easily said than done, though. Even aiming for five minutes a day might make a positive difference.
What would you do if you had the time? Go for a massage or play a round of partypoker? Then try, even five minutes of it each day. If you don’t have the time to go out, try and fit in something else at home. If you can’t head to a beauty salon, taking five minutes to paint your nails might be a cheaper, faster alternative that will still boost your spirits!
Working mommies have a job and little ones to take care of! It is by no means easy, so don’t forget to treat yourself once in a while. You deserve it! Get your favourite magazine, or get a babysitter so that you can go try that gym class you’ve been thinking about for weeks. Take care of your body and soul so that you can have more energy for other things. Treating yourself needn’t take a lot of time or money. Small treats can make a big difference!
What do you working mommies out there do for fun? Tell us about your favourite hobby, what you do when you have a rare moment of time to yourself? Do you have any creative outlets? Drawing, singing or painting regularly can be a refreshing and revitalizing experience. A balance of sports and creativity can really let you escape for the stresses and strains of every day life for a bit. You should try it!
