Posted on January 08 2018

Being a parent means putting your child's needs before your own. Which also means we often let our own needs fall to the wayside. But it's vital to make time for yourself every day, even if it's just five minutes. Self care is crucial to our happiness and to avoid burnout, which is not only good for ourselves but for our kids too. Read below on how to make the most out of your free time, whether it's five minutes or several hours!

If you have 5 minutes:

  • Mediate & breathe
  • Watch a funny YouTube video
  • Write in a journal
  • Listen to music
  • Stretch

If you have 30 minutes:

  • Take a well-deserved nap
  • Read a book
  • Go to a coffee shop
  • Go for a walk
  • Do nothing (yes its okay!)

If you have an hour:

  • Take a bath
  • Watch a movie
  • Reconnect with a friend
  • Get a massage
  • Cross off one thing from your to-do list

If you have three hours:

  • Go out to eat
  • Treat yourself and go shopping
  • Catch up on your shows
  • Purge your closet
  • Meet up with a friend or go out with your spouse
