Mommy Tip Monday: Makeing time for YOU!
Being a mommy to 4 sometimes 6 (I have 2 step boys), a business owner and being pretty much "married" I feel like saying having a boyfriend doesnt sound serious but were basically married haha in our hearts!;)
Gets pretty overwhelming and can be draining.. its not as easy as I make it look haha!
Its so important to recharge your batteries and take a few hours out the day or night for yourself and I dont mean once a month!
So for todays blog Im just gonna go over some things I like to do for myself!
Things I like to do before the kids wake in the morning:
My makeup :) I dont get to do this daily but Im trying to get in a routine where Im always ready, as busy as I am theres too many occasions where I need to run out the door and I got on flip flops, sweats, my "boyfriends" shirt on with some type of poo or spit up on it and some CRAZY hair! haha
So yeah getting off topic here.. A lot of girls ask when do you have time to do your makeup, DO IT IN THE MORNING when the kiddos are still in bed!
Make yourself a cup of coffee, open some windows.. let light in. Sit and slowly drink your coffee
(or whatever you like to drink) I've recently started drinking coffee <3 I try to keep it "skinny" there I go again going off topic.
Read a book or a magazine! Even if its just 15 minutes.
At night after the kids go to sleep is a great time to take advantage of some "me time" too!
You can do some more reading, I enjoy a nice bath with some candles!
I also like blogging !
Write in a journal
Those are little things you can do daily!
Get your nails done
Get a pedi or give yourself one
Buy yourself something.. makeup, nail polish a new purse?
Go out with the girls!
Sometimes Joe and I will go out together as a couple and sometimes I just go with the girls.
Drinks and dancing, dinner and a movie! These kinda nights are sooo fun and definitely recharge mommys batteries haha!
Never feel bad for making time for yourself... it really is vital and so important!
So starting today!! Make time for YOU!!
