After having a baby, mommies find too little time to do something for themselves. In simple words, it means- ‘No Me Time’. Women have been working so hard to make everybody’s lives easier. From packing food for their husbands to changing the baby’s diapers every time the baby poops to feeding them often.
Mommies spend a major part of their time looking after everybody’s needs. They have prioritized their baby’s needs so much, that sometimes they forget what they really want to do.
Your shower time isn’t your ‘me time’ just because you’re alone at that time. As a mommy, you need to understand the importance of having your own space for a while because it is healthy for your mind too. It keeps the frustration at bay and allows you to understand your baby’s needs better. Imagine being stuck in one place forever. It is horrible, isn’t it?
You need to take time out and do your own thing for a change. So, here are 5 ways in which you can enjoy your alone time.
1. Do what you love
An extraordinary mother like you forever thinks about ways to be a better mom. However, before being a mom, you need to realize the fact that you’re a person with different interests too. So, why don’t you just do the things you really wanted to for a long time. Even if you feel like doing nothing for a change, lazy days are always welcome here and there.
2. Your hubby is craving for your attention
He was your backbone during your pregnancy. Don’t you think it’s the perfect time for a payback. Sweep your darling off his feet by cooking for him or setting up a perfect candle light dinner for two. Give him the attention that he has been missing out on.
3. Dump your phone
Smartphones are a necessity and there’s no denying this fact. However, keeping a hawk’s eye on your phone is not just stressful for your eyes, but your child will feel like s/he is losing out on attention from you. They will try to compete with the phone in order to gain your attention. You know how children can be when it comes to competition.
4. Stop scolding your kid too much
Undoubtedly, children demand excessive attention by doing silly things. They know how to trigger anger in their moms. So they don’t mind the scoldings, as long as they get the attention. Cut down on the scolding part in order to enjoy your peace.
5. Get your girl gang
Get all your mommy friends and head out to a famous ice-cream parlor and treat yourselves because you have all been amazing mommies. Through thick and thin, you have been your family’s backbone, keeping things steady and going.
To all the mommies out there…YOU ARE AMAZING!!
