Put Yourself First This Year

Mom's always put everyone else first, your kids, your spouse, etc. After a long and busy winter break I decided to treat myself. Once school started back up I decided to set aside one hour and make a few phone calls and schedule a few appointments that I had been putting off. It is amazing how relaxed I felt after just making the phone calls and getting everything scheduled! I made an appointment for a one hour facial and a one hour massage at followed by a hair cut appointment and waxing.

I run around and do so many errands for my three children that I finally realized I need to do something for myself or else I am going to get burnt out. In order to be the best mom and spouse that I can be I need to take more time for myself. I had been really good about going to weekly yoga back in October but once the holidays approached that quickly dwindled and I found myself having less and less free time for yoga or anything for myself.

Cheers to a fresh start and a New Year! I encourage all of my blog readers to put themselves first this year and do something for YOU!

Tips on putting yourself first:

  • Spend just a few minutes at the beginning of each week looking at your schedule and calendar and choose a day/time that would work for you to have time to do something YOU want to do.

  • Go to the bookstore and find a good read for yourself. Reading is one of my favorite ways to relax.

  • Treat yourself to lunch at your favorite spot when your kids are at school.

  • Spend some time catching up on your favorite tv shows!

  • Do something you haven't done in a long time that you miss doing.
