Is it possible when you are a mum to feel rested? I mean come on, you are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week most of the time. the only solace i have is going to work so i can actually feel like an adult. Wouldn’t exactly call that resting though.
When you feel most rested
There are times in my life when i feel this can be achieved. it doesn’t help having a massively hectic lifestyle like i do with my three children and full time job but i do honestly try. I feel its good to have a chance to feel rested for your own self care.
Once the kids get into their pyjamas and settle off to bed, its time for me to get myself in the bath. I have a massive array of different bubble baths and bath bombs and this has quickly become my happy place. This just means i get at least an hour to myself (unless my eldest comes in and uses the toilet for the 14th time since he’s gone to bed) i get to lay in peace in the hot water without a care in the world. its just me, the bubbles and a good youtube channel binge.
If you are like me and get an opportunity to have an hour to yourself then please take it. Even if its not to be rested but to just stop for a minute and reevaluate yourself and get your affairs in order. Self care is one of the most important things to a happy healthy state of mind.
