Enough Time Moms: Taking Me-Time During The Busy Holidays

 

During the holidays we do a lot for everyone else. Often, we overlook ourselves and end up frazzled and short tempered. Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, or even if you don’t celebrate at all, the general buzz from this time of the year can be overwhelming.

Join me over at Enough Time Moms to learn a few ways to harness the peace and quiet we need to make everyone, including ourselves, feel special. Join the discussion and add your tips too!

Is It OK to Just Be Alone?

We talk about ‘Me’ time and doing things for ourselves. But it’s always about ‘doing stuff’ – book club, working out, shopping, lunch with a friend. It’s as if just doing nothing is a crime! I’d like to propose doing nothing. N-O-T-H-I-N-G, Nothing! Just read a book or a magazine or, heck, take a nap. We need to stop thinking we have to be doing something. *note to self – heed ones own advice!*

A Day Off

Hard at work image

I’ve been gone for almost a week and now that summer is in full swing I am going to take today off and organize my calendar and figure out how to fit all of summer into the 24-hours I have each day. Yesterday when I was feeding my inner science nerd Jet Propulsion Lab I learned that the team who drive the Mars Rovers had to make major adaptations to their scheduled to take into account that a day on Mars is 24hr 40 minutes on Earth. In addition, they had to factor in that they could only work with the rovers when it was light on Mars. Which was not always the same as it was on Earth.

And while I think I’d use my extra 40 minutes a day to sleep, truth is I’d probably be working or cooking or cleaning or filing or…. You get the idea.

I will be back later tonight and tomorrow with the weekly coupon matchups.

Thank you for understanding.
