Make the Most of Your "Me" Time

By February 15, 2013

Follow me on:

I love hanging out with my children. But I'm also a huge fan of "me" time.

I've yet to meet a mom who doesn't think she deserves some time for herself. But even after the kids are in bed, laundry has to be folded, dishes have to be put away and, well, that just shouldn't count as your free time.

Although I wish I could turn back the clock and manipulate time, I have found a strategy that helps me get the most out of my minutes. With those newfound minutes, I've been able to enjoy some "me" time at home as well as indulge in activities outside of the house too.

What are some of your favorite things to do with your "me" time? Share them with other moms.
