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 headymix.co.uk, 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.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
