I certainly hope you’re not looking at these thinking: “pff, if I only I had the time in the world to do this! What Mom has time for this?”
Believe me, self care is not a luxury only people “with time” get to have. Mom or not, everyone has their own bees wax that they have to take care of and that doesn’t mean we can’t invest even 10 minutes at a time at something we find pleasure in.
If you find time to spend more than 10 minutes in one day on social media, then making time for self care is a totally realistic discipline you can carry out just as much!
Give it a try! Even if it means waking up a little earlier. You will feel so good and it will set the tone for your whole day and make it run a whole lot smoother!
