Time goes fast. It goes even faster if you’re a parent. As parents, we need to be creative in making time for ourselves to make sure we are continually feeding our minds and growing while taking care of our responsibilities. It is a juggling act. Every day brings its own challenges but still, we push forward and find ways to make time for ourselves.
Sure there will be days which throw us off our plans. Life happens to us all but we still keep charging forward and making the best of the time we have.
I’ll go first:
- I wake up a few hours before my family to get my personal time. Those few hours of quiet time are wonderful.
- I read if I need to be with the kids while they play. Even if I can sneak in a single page I feel like I am making progress on the reading front.
- Make good use of lunchtime to learn/read/illustrate.
Your turn! Share the strategies you use to make time for yourself. I know I need more of them. :)
