As a work-at-home mom to three year old twin girls and an 8 year old son, I don’t get much “me time”. It seems like we are always on-the-go and have things going on – from school activities to play dates to just regular errands and trips to the grocery store. But it’s so important for moms to have time to reconnect with themselves and I know that when I do it, I feel so much more refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the day!
Here’s a few ways that I like to recharge and get some “me time”. I’d love to hear what you do, too!
– Watch a show. My family knows that when I go into my bedroom and close the door, I’m catching up on my favorite television shows. I love having that time to zone out and get caught up in the drama of others. There’s some shows I’ve been watching before I even had my kids and I love having that time to watch them!
– Go for a walk. I like taking a walk with my kids around the neighborhood but sometimes you just need to go by yourself. I like to put on my headphones, turn on my favorite playlist and enjoy getting some exercise and time to clear my head.
– Read a book. I loved reading before I had kids and I haven’t slowed down since. I downloaded a book app to my phone so I can read on whenever I have the time.
Whether it’s reading a book, watching my favorite television show or taking a break after my walk, I like to indulge in a sweet snack. Milano Cookies has added three new flavors to their already incredible line-up of cookies including a special edition one for Spring!
My favorite is the Salted Caramel Chocolate. It’s delicious on its own or served with ice cream. Another favorite is the Mocha Chocolate – I love having this with my morning coffee once I have the house to myself! And new for Spring and only available for a limited time is the Banana Chocolate – it’s the perfect treat to enjoy right now!
It’s so important to enjoy some “me time” as a mom – for your kids, your partner and for you! When you’re enjoying that time, make sure to indulge in some Milano cookies too!
