However, all opinions expressed are my own.
Us mamas are always last, our family always comes first which means we hardly ever get "me time". However it is very important for us mamas to have "Me Time". You can't take care of your babies if you don't take care of yourself. Your kiddos deserve your best! Sure we are all busy and a trip to the restroom by yourself is pretty much a luxury sometimes so I want to share a couple ways I like to spend my "Me Time" and how it can include my kids.
ONE// Trying New Recipes
Now you may be asking yourself how cooking is considered "me time"? Well I don't always like to cook but when it comes to trying a new recipe I get super excited! I love following directions and creating something yummy my family and I can enjoy. It's my "me time" because I love it. I love being in the kitchen by myself working on a recipe from gathering the ingredients to serving it to eat. Just this weekend I tried a broccoli and cheese soup recipe that was so good!
TWO// Working Out
I NEVER used to work out. In fact I HATED it. Just a couple months ago I started working out and eating healthier and I've noticed a big difference not only physically but emotionally as well. I feel so good after a work out. I have tons of energy and I just feel good overall. Whether I run outside or work out at home. My work outs are my "me time" and I love it. I don't always work out alone, usually my kids are either joining me by doing jumping jacks or I'm pushing them in a jogging stroller outside. We spend time together and get some good exercise in. It's a win-win!
If you know me personally then you already know how much I love to shop. I don't know what it is about it but I love it. I just feel so relaxed when I'm out browsing through isles and looking for something cute. I almost NEVER shop by myself and although it's not technically "me time" because I always have the kiddos with me, I still very much enjoy it. I found these super cute sandals at Marshall's just last week in the clearance section. I didn't even think it twice.
