The Importance of Taking Me Time as a Mom and Making Time for What Matters


I think women in general have tendency to place themselves on the bottom of the day to day priority list. And this habit can lead us to a pretty lonely place. When we aren’t making time for ourselves and our relationships, it can start to feel like we’re on an endless hamster wheel. I feel so lucky to be in a strong and healthy marriage with my best friend that, although not perfect, is an endless source of comfort and support. I’m also incredibly grateful to have a support system of friends that make me laugh and have seen me at my best and my worst, but still choose to be my friends.

But if I’m being honest, I didn’t just stumble into these relationships. They are the result of time, commitment and effort. Lasting and fulfilling relationships take work. All relationships haves ups and downs and it takes time and experience to weed out the good from the bad. But at the end of the day it’s so worth it. 

Mom’s can be some of the worst culprits when it comes to taking time for themselves and their relationships. But the importance of taking me time as a mom is crucial to our overall happiness. It helps us reset emotionally and reconnect with ourselves and others that are, you know, over 3 feet tall:)

Finding Peace Amongst the Chaos

Meet a friend for coffee, read a book on a park bench, go for a walk, treat yourself to a facial, give in to your sweet tooth. I promise what might feel like an indulgence is really not at all. Taking care of ourselves should never be seen as an extravagance because everyone reaps the rewards. When I remember the importance of taking me time as a mom, I think I’m actually a better mom because of it.
