5 Ways To Take Some "Mom Time"

Take 20! It just 20 easy minutes. Schedule in some you time. As moms, we often work so hard to care for others that we forget to relax. But what you often forget is that you can take just a few minutes to relax sans baby. It doesn’t have to be a full-day “off,” and you don’t even have to leave your house. Just pick a time every day to make some time for yourself. Now, this doesn’t include doing the dishes without any interruptions or taking time to put laundry away. It means taking 20 minutes to do something you enjoy! It will help you be a better mom when you take time out of your day to regroup and give yourself a few magical moments.
