Mommy Me time


I am a HUGE advocate of Mommy Me Time.


I believe in my core Mommy Me Time is not only a necessity but an absolute MUST and should be part of your daily routine.


Every Mom is a super hero!


YOU were hand-picked by higher power to be your child’s Mom (a.k.a. Guardian Angel).  You are exactly who he/she needs to guide them through life.


With this big role comes a big responsibility to take care of yourself so in return you can be the super star you were meant to be in your most important role as a Mom.


One thing I know for sure is that everything points to Self-care!  Without self-care it’s impossible to be healthy – mentally, physically and emotionally.


If you are not healthy mentally, emotionally and physically everyone around you will suffer.


Without proper mental health, we lack patience.  For parents patience is a mandatory requirement.

Think about the last time you lost your patience and snapped at your kids.  The chances are you were exhausted, tired, burned out and most likely skipped a meal or two.  All of which effects your ability to manage stress, your mood and your interaction with those around you.


Commit to giving yourself 15-30 min a day towards doing something just for YOU!


To help you kick things off here is a list of 80 things you can do for yourself for your Mommy Me Time!


I invite you to take this list and add things that bring YOU joy.

Call it your “JOY List”.

Make it part of your routine to carve out “Mommy Me Time” and do something that brings you joy.


This will work best when you actually block off time on your calendar and really commit to it.


Your Mind, Body and Soul will love you for it.


Have fun with this and enjoy your Mommy Me Time!

  1. Learning to ride a horse would bring me joy. So would petting a cat or dog. Listening to music. Reading a novel. Eating chips and soda while watching a movie at home with my feet up. Writing in a journal. Writing poetry.

    • Hey Momina – horse back riding it so much fun! GREAT summer activity. If it’s something on your wish list, I would encourage you to look for trails near you that offer horseback riding and book a session for this spring/summer.

      You won’t regret it. You can even make it a fun date activity with your spouse….or book it for your wedding anniversary celebration <3 Go for it!!!

      Let me know how you like it 🙂
