How to Make Much-Deserved Time for You

When you are part of a family, it’s easy to become swept up in weekend trips, doctor’s appointments, and the school project your child only told you about the night before. After a long week, finding some time to yourself is extremely important and much-deserved, so here are some tips on making sure you take time to yourself. 

Join an Exercise Class

A great way to escape the routine of home for a short while is to join an exercise group. There are plenty of different types you can choose to attend, from something more relaxing, like yoga, to a high-intensity workout like power boxing. Exercise is great for both the body and the mind, so you won’t just be taking time away, you’ll also be improving your overall health. An added benefit of joining a group is that you’re likely to meet like-minded friends there as exercise classes are a great place to socialize. You’ll be keeping fit, meeting new people, and taking the essential time out of your home life. 

Take Morning Walks 

Getting into a routine of taking a lonely morning walk is the perfect way to reset yourself before the hustle and bustle of the day begins. Wake up slightly earlier than usual, put on some comfortable joggers, and greet the day before most people have arose. The fresh morning air will be sure to wake you, while the peace of the quiet walk will refresh your mind, leaving you all ready for the busy day ahead. At first, the walks may seem like a chore, especially when you have to leave your warm, cozy bed, but after a while, you will come to look forward to the quiet time away. 

Purchase a Monthly Subscription Box

Time seems to pass more and more quickly as we get older, and the months can pass you by without notice until one day you look at the calendar and realize you’re three months behind. How did that happen? Did you make time for yourself? A brilliant way of ensuring you keep track of the months while also making sure you are taking time for you is to order a monthly or quarterly subscription box. This way, each one to three months, you will be greeted with a present just for you! If you’re an avid reader, consider, where they will send you relevant and diverse books according to the season. It’s a wonderful way of treating yourself to a lovely gift while also making sure you have time to yourself at the same time. 

Schedule Your Weekly Slot

An important way of making sure you do have time for yourself is to schedule in a weekly slot for you and only you. For example, let everyone in your household know that between 6 pm and 7 pm on a Sunday that you shan’t be disturbed. Take a long bath, catch up on your favorite TV show, or just take a well-earned nap; it doesn’t matter what you do, it’s your time! Make sure you treat the slot to yourself as an absolute priority, and eventually, it will become second nature that that time is yours and yours only. 

Taking time for yourself can sometimes seem impossible, but it is one of the most beneficial gifts you can give yourself. Take some time out from your busy schedule and focus on yourself now, and again, you won’t regret it.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
