When you put something on the calendar, you usually stick with it. It also allows more time to find a babysitter if you need or to work it out with your spouse.
Don’t try to spend an hour by yourself when you first start out. Even something that only takes a few minutes at a time will still be more beneficial than doing nothing at all.
Don’t do the same thing every time you take time for yourself. Change it up! Maybe one day you focus on your physical health and the next day your mental health.
Self-care is not selfish. You need time to recuperate and reset in order to take care of your children. Remember, you cannot pour from an empty cup! Self-care will help you be your best self.
