Mommies also need a little sanity-saving “me” time. When you are stressed and burnt out you have a shorter fuse and you easily get irked and “me” time is what keeping you cool-headed most of the time. It does not have to be luxurious. In fact, a simple foot spa can keep you sane for the rest of the week. Foot Spa is my favorite “me” time (second to good sleep) maybe because it is the least expensive that pampers and relaxes me.
Sometimes you feel guilty to leave kids at home while you are pampering yourself. You feel uneasy and worry too much as to how and what the kids are doing while you are away. To lessen your worries, guilt and all, schedule your Mommy time on Weekends when your husband or someone older in the house could watch the kids for you. Isn’t it nice to be back home revitalized, more relaxed and calmer?
