The Importance Of ‘Me’ Time for Mums

Like it? Share it!

The concept of “me time” can be laughable and guilt-inducing for many busy mums. But it’s a healthy, necessary part of modern parenting.

It’s not selfish – it’s self-care and vital to help you cope with living with kids!

I coach loads of mums  and dads around balancing their lives as most of us put ourselves really low on the pecking order of priorities – BUT getting a much needed rest is vital for your well being,  patience and sense of humour.

‘Me’ time replenishes your energy.

‘Me’ time re – charges your batteries.

‘Me’ time rejuvenates your spirit and gives you a sense of perspective.
