5 EASY WAYS TO MAKE “ME” TIME AT HOME

This post was sponsored by Neutrogena as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Life can get crazy whether you have kids or not, so it’s important to take a step back and create some time for yourself at home. We tend to spend all day telling ourselves that we’re too busy and have no time for anything. If you change your thoughts, and focus on what’s in your control, you will find that you can achieve more in your day with less stress too!

As a busy mom, it’s important to remember to take care of ourselves and create some well-deserved “me time” at home. By being in the present moment and tweaking the way you spend and plan your time, you will be able to achieve this.

Today I’m teaming up with Neutrogena Rainbath to share some simple ways you can make more “me” time at home. Let’s get started, shall we?!

1. WAKE UP EARLY

In order to fit in some alone time, you can wake up 30-60 minutes before everyone else and do something you really love like reading, writing, exercising, or even drinking your coffee in peace. If you aren’t a morning person at all then don’t worry….even 15 minutes earlier can make a small difference and help you get ready for the day ahead.

It’s a great way to not only reduce stress, but also prepare yourself for the day ahead. I personally love waking up before my daughter does most days during the week. I spend this time drinking my coffee alone in peace and checking up on emails. I always feel more energized, motivated, and much more productive throughout the rest of the day. You can read more about my morning routine in this post.

2. ESTABLISH A ROUTINE

I always find that organization is the key to success. I’m a huge fan of calendars, schedules, and lists. Without them, I become distracted and start to procrastinate. In the end nothing really gets done and life becomes more stressful. By creating and maintaining a balanced routine, you will find that you’re more at east and will have a lot more free time on your hands.

3. DELEGATE TO OTHERS

You might think you can do it all, but you really don’t have to. No matter how hard we try, we really are unable to do everything ourselves without it affecting other areas of our lives. Think about what you’re able to let go of and hand it over to someone else. It could be as simple as having other members in your family do some of the household chores or buying your groceries online. Anything to make your life easier and free up some time will add less stress to your life and create more “me” time at home.

4. REEVALUATE YOUR EVENINGS

Do you feel like you’re complaining you have no time, but then spend all your hours at night on Facebook, Instagram Stories or watching television? I’m totally guilty of this. I love Instagram and Bravo television unfortunately and it tends to sometimes suck me in and waste so much of my time. Try to dedicate at least 1-2 evenings a week where you turn off all the electronics and focus on a hobby you really love whether it be reading, writing, painting or meditating. If you feel like you don’t have any hobbies, then try some new ones and see what you like.

5. BRING THE SPA TO YOU

Who doesn’t love a good spa day? They’re amazing, but can get a bit pricey and tend to suck up a lot of time. Why not create your own spa at home at night once the kids are in bed. These days, I’m a huge fan of Neutrogena Rainbath and it’s a must-have essential for all moms. You can easily turn your shower or bath into a pampering experience, while cleansing and conditioning skin without leaving behind a heavy, filmy residue.

Neutrogena’s Rainbath products really allow me to relax during the busy week and I love the fact that they’re extremely versatile. They can be used in the shower as body wash, added to a bath or used for shaving your legs. They’re currently available in 5 refreshing scents including original scent, pear & green tea, pomegranate, ocean mist, and fresh plum {my personal favorite}. You can find all of Neutrogena’s Rainbath products at Walgreens or Walgreens.com.
