1. Determine how much time you want to spend. Whether it is 10 minutes to 2 hours. How much time do you want to spend and how often? I used to think it had to be a long stretch of time. But a quick 15 minutes doing something that I love really can refresh me for the day.
2. Nap when the kids nap. I know I heard this advice before I had my twins and my two-year-old and of course I was like when they are asleep I want to get work done. I want to clean the house. For a while I would work on my business or try to clean up while my they were asleep. But as I started to take naps while they napped, I would feel much better for the rest of the day. Even if it meant laying them down and napping for 30 minutes and then getting up and working for the rest of the time they were asleep.
3. Shower while they nap. This works well for me if I would lay my son down and immediately take a shower. No excuses for I don’t have time for mommy. Because it is already in my schedule. Even a quick 5-10 minute shower is SO refreshing!
4. Be near your child, but not playing with them. This means sitting in a chair in the same room reading, sewing ect. or have them play in a room and you sit in a room near them enjoying some quality time to yourself.
~Be beautiful, inspired, and blessed!
