As a mom and a blogger, I pretty much never stop working. Let’s face it; there is always something to do. Whether it is changing the kid’s diapers, writing content for my blog, or actively driving my family everywhere they need to be, my day is jam packed from the time I wake up to the time I may shut my eyes. My New Years Resolutions this year is to give myself more “Me Time!”
Did you know that nearly 2 in 3 moms have never taken a day completely for themselves? If you’re reading this, you probably fit into that category.
So, here are some New Years Resolutions to get some “Me Time” for yourself this year!
Take a Day Off from Housework
I know it’s hard, but just don’t do it. The dishes will still be there the next day, the laundry won’t grow legs and walk out of your house, and the toys you picked up yesterday are going to be there today, tomorrow, and until God knows when. Give yourself a break and just don’t do any of it for 1 whole day (that’s 24 hours’ ladies).
Take a Shower…. Alone
An uninterrupted shower can be more relaxing than a day at the spa for a mom. Send the kids, the husband and even the dog to the store, outside, or kick them down in the basement so you can have just 20-minutes to take a shower…. alone!
Watch Non-Kid Shows
Do you know every Doc McStuffins show by heart? Can you whine almost on key with Caillou? Do you know all the songs to Barney? You need a life…. outside of cartoons. Give your kids an early bedtime at least once a month, so you can enjoy the television or watch a movie without interruptions or annoying characters that make you want to rip your eyes out.
Change Less Diapers
How many diapers do you change in a day? Let’s face it; if you changed fewer diapers, you would have more time for yourself. That’s why this year, I have decided to switch my kids to Luvs! Here’s why!
- Luvs is committed to providing parents with value and making sure that diapering is easy and less of a hassle.
- Luvs recently introduced their new and improved Leakguard diapers with NightLock Plus which mean no getting up during the night for changing, and less changes throughout the day.
- Luvs offers coupons. Visit http://www.coupons.com/brands/luvs-coupons/ to access a Luvs coupon of $1 off any one diaper pack. Print the coupon at home and use it at any mass, discount, the grocery store where Luvs Diapers are sold.
