Being a mother is not easy, there’s always an endless list of errands which could mean no time for your own self. We all human beings seek our space and a little bit of time that we can spend on ourselves. There are lots of little things that you can do to schedule your everyday time so as to spare out a few hours for yourself. All you need is to make minor adjustments and you will no more be cribbing about losing out on your space because of your kids. Have a look at the following tips to know in what all different ways you can enjoy a breather without completely giving up on your motherly duties.
â€¢ Sometimes your partner may be willing to be a nice dad and take the children out for a little play, leaving you all by yourself at home. This leaves you with at least a few hours, on hand, to do whatever you feel like.
â€¢ When you need time to do a pedicure, a manicure or something of the sort, you can always get your kids involved so that they are kept busy and still you get a chance to take care of yourself. However, in such feminine activities avoid keeping your son involved or you never know he might just grow up to be a little queasy (you know what I’m trying to say). â€¢ If your kid is still young, get him/her to take an afternoon nap as it is certainly healthy for the child and additionally it leaves you with some time to spend on yourself.
â€¢ Instead of wasting hours on washing and cutting vegetables, look for ready-to-cook vegetables which have already been washed and cut. It does cost a bit more but definitely saves you a lot of time. â€¢ Learn a few quick one-pot meal recipes and serve them for dinner. I know you can’t do it on an everyday basis, but a few times a week is just fine. And not only does it take less time to prepare; you also have a lot less dish washing to do. It’s important to spare out some time for yourself and pamper yourself once in a way, to avoid stress buildup. And do remember that only a well-rounded and satisfied mother is capable of raising well-rounded and satisfied children. So your “time out” is not just needed for your personal health but for an overall healthy environment in the family.
