How sad is that? I never fully realized it until just now. I think I am taking time for me but I am always multi-tasking at the same time. Us Moms are very good at that.
Or worse, as mentioned in this post, my idea of relaxing is dependant on a having some wine, which sabotoges my plans do to yoga or go for a run.
So now I am thinking...what can I do to relax? How can I find time for ME while caring for Claire? This is very hard to do now as we no longer live with family. In this new house, when Ryan is away on a business trip, I am truly alone with Claire. I havent made any friends yet, Claire isnt in daycare, it's a lot to juggle.
Caring for Claire
Cleaning the house
running a home business
grabbing a shower when I can
But relax? Not much of that happening. I am happy, I love my life and my new home, but I know I need to practice more self-care.Usually when I sit down to relax, I am beading a necklace for my shop. I find beading very relaxing, I love doing it, but again it's not JUST FOR ME.
What do you do to relax? Do you take time for yourself every day?
