Being able to carve out a few minutes a day for your can be a challenge even in the best of times. If you are a stay at home mom, that can sometimes be next to impossible. While working at home and taking care of kids, the line between work and personal time can become very blurry. However, it is very important to be able to grasp few minutes here and there to be able to relax and unwind. Many moms use the time when kids are busy in activities, or after they have gone to bed, as the perfect opportunity to enjoy a little bit of “me” time. Here are some fun ideas to do without even leaving your house.
Catching up on tv shows: Gone are the days that you have to wait for a specific time and day to watch your favourite show. Now you can catch up any time and place with network streaming services and DVR, perfect for busy schedules.
Play online games. Playing Bingo online at Ladbrokes, and other online games, provides some great mental stimulation in a pretty exciting environment. The games can be pretty quick so that they do not require a lot of time commitment, and can be a fun pick-me-up at any time of day, even while doing boring tasks such as laundry.
Read a book. This is timeless advice that seems to be repeated from generation to generation-with good reason, because it works. Just by turning a page you can be transported to another world, and since you can take a book (or an ebook) anywhere it’s great for days when you have a lot of time to kill, such as long line ups at the DMV.
Taking a few mini breaks a day is a great way to energize after taking care of others.
