The kids are asleep, ahh....

I love the release you get when you close the door or you see your child drift off to sleep and you have that moment of silence. Ahh.... It feels like a weight has been lifted a little. What do you do with all that freedom? Pass out yourself from exhaustion, laundry, prep dinner, veg out on social media or in front of the t.v.? Sometimes I do all of those things but more often than not these days, I make it a point to do something that is a priority for ME. This can be anything. Again, these days it may be writing for my business but sometimes it is getting in a quick workout, or...wait for it....take a shower! As parents we often put our needs last, and that can certainly lead us into feeling overwhelmed and burned out. Not a good place to be parenting from! So what is important for you right now? Is there a project you have been interested in starting, a new workout you want to try or even workout at all, maybe some calming meditation? Decide today what it is that you really want for yourself right now--a goal for yourself.Start making it a priority during those naps or after the kids go to bed. It does not have to be long. You can even do something for 15, 20 or even 30 minutes. Just enough to give something to yourself. Then go pass out if you need to you. Best wishes!
