Being a mom does not have to take
away from you being yourself and doing the things you enjoy doing.
Me-time is not something moms should feel guilty about, in fact they should actively practice without feeling guilty about it and here’s how we advise that you do it:
on Your Partner
Allow your partner to assist in taking over baby duty while having a break.
2. It takes a village to raise a child
If you have a mom support group where you can take turns in babysitting even if for an hour, take part!
3. Baby’s nap time can be your me-time
Instead of catching up on household chores, try doing something for you when the kids are sleeping.
4. For mom and baby
Finding baby friendly alternatives to things you enjoy doing the most and keep the little ones occupied
5. Adjusting your sleeping patterns
If you stay up longer in the evening after the kids’ bedtime, use that time for your relaxation. Maybe watch a movie or read a book with for favorite tea.
