…because you have to put on your oxygen mask FIRST before you can help those who need assistance.
…because as a mother, you have less to give when you’re running on empty.
…because now, you can’t afford to get sick.
Free Time: 40 minutes to run to the post office between feedings.
Me Time: 20 minutes in a bubble bath, with candles.
Free Time: Answering work emails from the couch after the baby’s gone to bed.
Me Time: Pajama pants, a favorite movie, and a foot massage from your partner.
Free Time: The treadmill, which you hate…
Me Time: Hot Vinyasa Yoga, which you love…
Free Time: “Honey, we have a few minutes before taking Bella to her well check-up, let’s go over these bills.”
Me Time: “Honey, let’s ask your mom to watch the baby for two hours so we can go to our favorite restaurant.”
Free Time: Pounding through exhaustion by stopping for a cup of coffee.
Me Time: A delicious afternoon cat nap.
Take care of yourself. There’s nothing wrong with just a little “Me Me Me.”
