Making time for yourself

Are you a full-time mother? Are you engaged in a full-time job and have to manage both home and office efficiently? What do you do when you manage to get some free time for yourself?  Do you take off some time from your busy schedule to be just you?

If these questions have been bothering you for some time and yet you have not managed to do something about it, it is time that you do make up your mind fast. You may be getting overwhelmed and even stressed at times due to your busy schedule and daily responsibilities.  But make some time for yourself between washing your baby’s bottles, changing diapers, preparing meals, doing your laundry and getting prepared for a meeting in your office.

Here are some of the ways you can pamper yourself during your spare time.

  1. Pedicures and manicures: It is really important that you should always feel and look your best. Make some time and visit one of those salons to get a manicure that will last for a while. To make the experience more enjoyable, why don’t you call some of your close girlfriends and together enjoy a hand massage, a foot soak and, of course, an immaculately finished pedicure and manicure. So, even with your daily dishwashing chore, this no drying time polish will last for several weeks to come.


  1. Go out and spend some memorable time: Do you have a man in your life? If yes, it is time for both of you to spend some beautiful moments together. Alternatively, you can also enjoy some quality time with your closest girlfriends. Get ready and look your best for your special evening  the best wine and food. Select a spot that plays your favorite music with a great crowd (if you like to be around people) or you can make the reservation in a cozy, private place. Have fun and enjoy your evening considering it a reward for all the hard work you put in. This is a simple pleasure but will rejuvenate you for sure.


  1. Time to visit a spa: How about a spa day for you? Though it can be a bit pricey but at the end of your visit, you would really feel that the spending was worth it. You can do an online comparative price analysis and select a spa whose rates are not too expensive for you. A spa can offer you massage and a soothing bath that will take away all your exhaustion. Every woman, irrespective of her profession requires some spare time to spend a day that is full of comfort and relaxation.


  1. Getting a new haircut: Every woman knows that a well-maintained and a stylish haircut can do wonders on the overall appearance. So take time to get a very good haircut and also spend some time maintaining it. Hair stylists say that you should get a haircut every three months or so to maintain the bounce in your hair. Just experiment with something new so that once you get your hair styled, you would be a stunner.


As a mom, professional, daughter, wife or daughter-in-law, we have to carry a lot of responsibilities on our shoulders. But don’t you think that all of us need some little pampering to rejuvenate us?

So how about taking out some time for yourself from your busy schedule and look drop dead gorgeous?
