Love this article. Some things I do are: listen to music, read, go get my nails done, go do my hair, shower, watch a movie, sleep or just enjoy the silence.

I try to watch a show, or I enjoy a shower until my daughter gets her bath right after. My husband is deployed and when I get the me time is usually when he calls so I don't really get any me time at all.

I personally have my me time once both kids are in bed, I usually have a bath/shower and then read a book for a bit before bed. I also love listening to podcasts whilst cooking meals. Then occasionally when I get childcare I disappear to gym for an hour

I haven’t done my makeup in Uh.. a long time. So I packed it into a bag and now I sit at the dining room table with a mirror and do it while my daughter plays. We don’t get to get out often so I wasn’t seeing the point in even trying to still feel human. But something so small has helped so much.

I have been trying to do specific things at each feeding (podcast, music/pray, read, watch a show) so that feedings can also be me time! And I’m excited to be cleared to workout in a week. It will be a challenge but so good mentally!
