3 Tips For Taking Time to Focus On Yourself #PerfectSizeFor1

Since I became a full-time working mom in February, life has been so hectic. Working 8am-4:30pm, making sure Riley does her homework, making dinner, keeping the blog running, spending time with my family, and making sure I even have the energy to get a shower is tough work. It has definitely been a big adjustment. And finding time for myself? It’s near impossible. But as a woman, it is so important. Today I want to share some tips from how I have found the time to focus on myself, even if it is in small increments. And you’ll want to continue reading – one of them includes delicious cake. 😉

3 Tips For Taking Time to Focus On Yourself | Optimistic MommyLearn To Say No

This has been the most difficult thing for me. Friends have invited me to parties or to just hang out, family have invited me to gatherings, there’s events going on where I’m a member at. But sometimes I have to say no to keep my sanity. Running myself ragged just doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s not healthy. So my favorite word this year has been no. And that’s okay. Why? Because everyone has to say no eventually. I’ve been told no when someone can’t make it to a party I’m having. And there’s no hard feelings. Maybe next time. Take it from me – don’t feel bad if you have to say no.

Take Time To Unwind Before Bed

Even taking 10-15 minutes before going to sleep at night to read, do yoga, or whatever calming activity you enjoy can make the world of difference. For me, I love to read. So I always make sure to take some time before falling asleep to read. I will be honest, most times I do fall asleep with my book in my hands. But that’s okay – just means I’m relaxed since I’m doing something I enjoy so much.

Indulge Alone

We all enjoy a sweet treat every once in awhile, right? Thanks to Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 cakes, you can enjoy a delicious treat in about a minute! Available in 15 flavors, including Chocolate Lover’s Cake, Brownie, Blueberry Muffin, and Confetti Cake, there is sure to be a flavor that will allow you to indulge and escape. I love how they come in 4 pouches to a box, too.

I actually have one box at work for when that sweet craving hits. I can just go to the break room with one of the pouches and my favorite mug, and mix one up right there.

With just these three tips, I have been able to be a little saner since I’m taking the time to myself. What tips do you have to add?
