Ideas to Keep Your Mom-Sanity

>> Monday, April 11, 2011

1. Read a book by your favorite author. Take at least 15 minutes a day to just sit quietly and get some reading done.
2. Get up early to just breath. Relax. Pray. Take a few minutes to mentally prepare for your day.
3. Go to bed late. Relax. Pray. Mentally prepare for tomorrow!
4. Take a candle lit bath. Lock the bathroom door. This would be a good time to grab that book! Note to Super Moms -> bring the baby monitor if you must…LOL. However, TAKE SOME TIME FOR YOU!
5. Tape your favorite show and watch it while the kids are napping or at bedtime.
6. Insist on a daily quiet time. Reward the kids for cooperation. Use the time to relax, read your book, paint your nails, whatever. Keep in mind, YOU are in charge and if you are parenting properly, the kids must comply to your daily quiet time. It really is OK! LOL!
7. Get a pedi or manicure. Better yet, take a friend and make a day of it. Leave the kids with Dad, Mom, a friend or your Mother in Law.
8. Get your hair done on a regular basis if the budget allows. This will make you feel good, hubby check you out and give you some much needed time away!
9. Schedule monthly or at least bi-monthly Moms Night Out. Leave all the kids with the Dads. They will survive and it will be great bonding time!
10. Go for a scenic drive.
11. Shop alone whenever possible.
12. Exercise regularly.
13. Go for a walk…alone.
14. Garden.
15. Find a hobby and DO it.
16. Give yourself a facial after the kids go to sleep.
17. Get dressed up for no reason. Just to look and feel good.
18. Put some make up on for crying out loud!
19. Join a book club.
20. Go to a weekly Bible study or other faith related activity.
21. Have lunch or dinner with a friend.
22. Change your look.
23. Get a pet. (this is good for Moms with older kids who still want to nurture)

26. Can’t dance? Take dance lessons.
27. Learn a foreign language.
