Charlotte Mason called it “Mother Culture”.  Moms need time to breathe, to recoup, to rejuvenate.

Often, moms have only a few minutes here or there to claim for their own.  Those small breaks can really bring you back to sanity.  Mom Time can help you get your perspective back to where you want and need it to be.

Here are some ideas:

  • Take a walk
  • Enjoy a hot bath
  • Listen to music that calms you
  • Sit outdoors and listen to nature
  • Play a musical instrument
  • Read a book
  • Pray
  • Exercise
  • Sleep
  • Play a game
  • Chat with a friend
  • Cuddle
  • Color
  • Gaze at the stars
  • Laugh at a funny book or movie
  • Play with your pet
  • Sing

I’m sure you can think of many more things that enable you to relax and re-focus.  Margin is so important.  Pick one and enjoy anticipating a little time for yourself.
