We say we will do this but very few of us really do. Making time for yourself should be on your priority list every week. Even if it isn’t every day (because, let’s be realistic), do it as often as you are able.
If you have to schedule it in, do that. Whatever will make it work for you. I love to use my planner for everything; even small things. One of the ways I like to organize my day is using time blocking. So what better way to make sure you are getting time in than blocking off time for it each week.
Make sure everyone is aware that this your “me-time” to limit any interruptions. And I am not saying you have to block off two hours and lock your bedroom door, but maybe it’s getting in a bubble bath on Sunday evenings or cooking YOUR favorite meal on Wednesdays and enjoying it out on the porch. Whatever it looks like for you, making that time for yourself is essential to preventing mom burnout. I especially have to now that I am homeschooling. If I don’t plan to make the time for myself, I won’t make it happen.
