Sometimes the week can feel very long. So when “hump day” rolls around it is important to make a “feel good moment” for yourself. Here are five ways I take a minute for myself on Wednesdays to help get me through the rest of the week :
While some people may not think going grocery shopping is taking a minute for yourself, grocery shopping without my kids is actually super relaxing for me. Sometimes I’ll grab a Starbucks Iced Tea and sip it while I shop. Sometimes I pick up fresh flowers for my house. But there is absolutely no yelling, no one runs into the back of my heels with a tiny shopping cart and I don’t have to push around a small yacht-sized race car shaped shopping cart.
I LOVE to read. Nothing too heavy, I like to keep it nice and light. I hope that my kids turn in to voracious readers. And since “they” always say to lead by example, I want to make sure they see how much I love to read. While laundry and other chores need to be a priority, a nice little reading break won’t throw off our whole schedule. And getting to do something indulgent in the middle of the week is so satisfying. And it means that potentially there will be a half hour stretch of time without bickering…
There is nothing better than lunch with a friend, mid-week. Having a few hours to eat my own food and only worrying about taking myself to the bathroom is a HUGE treat. It doesn’t need to have wine (always), or be at a fancy place, but that time with your gal pal talking about anything and everything is truly precious. And if you don’t have time for a whole lunch, meeting up for an iced tea or coffee works too!
I’m kind of addicted to sparkling water. If I need a pick me up in the afternoon, one of the first things I do is make myself a refreshing glass of sparkling water with a squeeze of fresh lime. It makes me so happy. I recently found Arrowhead® Brand Sparkling Mountain Spring Water in Raspberry-Lime Essence and it changed the game. I still add a squeeze of fresh lime (because I am even more addicted to fresh lime than I am to sparkling water) but the super subtle raspberry flavor is delicious. Arrowhead® Brand Sparkling Mountain Spring Water is comprised of just three natural ingredients—spring water, natural fruit essence, and bubbles! And, with no sugar or calories, Arrowhead® Brand Sparkling Mountain Spring Water is a good alternative to soda. I use the un-flavored sparkling water for drinks where I mix in other things, but they also have 5 other flavors: lemon essence, lime essence, mandarin orange essence, black cherry essence and the raspberry-lime essence. So there is a little something for everyone. And any time I can, I put on music. Whether I am doing the dishes or folding laundry, there is always music playing. And it is music that I love, not my kid’s faves. Music energizes me and I love to find a new song that really moves me. Sure you could do all these chores in a quiet house, but for me the music just makes me feel good. Do you take time for yourself in the middle of the week?
