Before I had kids I always thought I would have no problem giving myself some “me” time. How quickly that fades when you start thinking of all the zillion other things that need to be done. Naptime was always the moment where I could ideally sit down and relax, but for me it turned into clean up time. In order to make sure I was getting some “me” time in, I started making little lists of projects I wanted to do. As soon as Baby went down I’d hop into the craft room, work for a bit, and then get to cleaning. Just those 30 minutes (or less) daily was enough to give me the extra jolt I needed to feel great again.
