I am a massive advocate of taking time for yourself, whether its a quiet walk by yourself, an exercise class or if your lucky an amazing spa treatment, I think that taking some time for yourself should be a priority… a priority in order to keep sane!
We all have busy bustling lives, juggling many different priorities and often leaving our own needs to the bottom of the pile. I know before I had Sonny I was running between a million different things, over booking myself and burning the candle at both ends big time!
Now that I am a mum, the overload has truly blown up. I obviously now have a massive priority that takes up the majority of my time (which is fab, may I add) however, the other jobs haven’t gone away, throw part time work into the mix along with the normal house, day to day tasks and you have yourself a busy ol’ cocktail right there!
I’ll grasp onto any remains of a social life I can plus I am lucky to have a husband who understands an exercise class is a great remedy for me to switch off.
I know I ‘m starting to feel like a re-charge is needed, my energy levels feel decreased, my skin looks lack lustre and I just feel a little bit mehh…Its time for a little pinch of ‘me’ time to get some sparkle back, sooooo a date with myself will firmly be on the cards soon!
In the meantime I’ll get way tooo excited about my evening wind down routine of make up off, pyjamas on, cup of tea, something sweet in hand whilst firmly planted on the sofa! Its the little things like this, a little breathing space, good for the soul!
What are your favourite things to keep yourself happy and looked after? I’d love more ideas…
