    Being a SAHM I always feel guilty taking time for myself. I feel like being home is my job and I need to be on 24-7….what do you do for yourself?

    I workout before everyone wakes up every single day. It is the best me-time.

    I have one day a week where my son goes to bed very early (we skip his nap that day) and I use that time to either do my nails, catch up on my favorite show or get a workout in. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. I’m sure a parent, spouse, sibling, friend, or babysitter would be willing to give you some time to get out by yourself. If you’re unsure, why not start with small increments (like a one hour yoga class) and work your way up to dinner and a movie, or even a weekend getaway. Maybe make it a traditional that when you go out, you bring the kids home a little trinket. That way they may even look forward to you getting out of the house sometimes!

    I work out, I usually do an hour on the elliptical and 3 x a week I will do light weights, it gives me a sense of accomplishment and I am able to handle the day so much better.

    I spend the time when my children are sleeping to do whatever I want. I usually just watch some TV or read a book.

    I have 3 kids so I don’t have much “me” time but once in a blue moon I like to go get pampered at the spa and have a pedicure and get my nails done,

    I just recently started back working 4 days a week however my hours are short. (3 days are 4 hour shifts and 1 day is 8 hour shift) I consider that some of “me time” however, I take nice warm baths here and there to help relax and have a little break. I don’t spend no more than 30 mins taking a bath and using a bath bomb or whatever I would like. I don’t really spend money on myself so a bath is nice.

    Take a pamper evening and try to relieve some of the stress from the day. This doesn’t happen very often but when it does it provides a therapeutic experience.

    I know it sounds like it not for me since when I blog I get things for the family and test out products enter sweeps and such but that truly is what I do for my down time. I meet great people who have the same freebie hunting hobby. I also take photos and go on photography walks with a photogroup i am part of and I mentor other parents because giving back is my way of saying I’m not alone and I found calling in helping others. I also like to write and get crafty
