The June holiday is here! And with no school for the kids, it’s a big headache for mums. Hours feel like weeks. Days feel like years. You love them, but you need to take some much-needed time for yourself too. After all, you can’t be your best for them 24/7 if you’re not taking care of your own needs. What can you do to keep balance for yourself? We have a few suggestions.
Exercise is always a wonderful way to release your stress. And if you can’t get away from the kids, a swim or even a dance party in the living room will do wonders. You’ll have fun, plus it will have the added bonus of making them tired which will make them go to bed early, giving you some precious quiet time.
Spend time with friends
Why not make a playdate of it? Take turns with your friends to host each other. Everyone can bring a healthy snack, like fresh fruit, to enjoy together. The kids can play and mums can have conversations that don’t involve saying, “Stop that!” or “Don’t hit your sister!”
Get lost in a book
One of the most beautiful escapes can be found in the pages of a book. Make it a habit to get into reading for yourself. If you can’t recall the last book you read that wasn’t a children’s book to your kids during bedtime stories, it’s time to get to the bookstore and choose something that excites you.
Rediscover your hobbies
Before your kids came along, did you ever do anything just for you? Whether it was art, writing, sports, or anything else, it’s time to steal back a little time for yourself doing what you love. You’ll feel so much better when you tune back into your own needs, even if for just a little bit every week.
