This Mother’s Day, don’t forget to take some time out for YOU. I’ve put together a list of some favorite Mother’s Day (and beyond) activities to do for a little “me” time.
1. Manicure/pedicure: Make an appointment, bring some magazines or your best friend and take a few hours to unwind. Less expensive as a day at the spa and still a little pampering for yourself.
2. Blowout: Most salons will do an inexpensive shampoo and blowout for you. After you drop the kids off at school, before work, or for a night out, a blowout is a real treat yourself activity that makes you feel (and look) good!
3. Library time: Though the library is usually a great rainy day retreat for the kids, use it as your own retreat (without the kids in tow). Bring or check out a good book, a newspaper or some magazines and use the quiet time to indulge in a good read.
4. Stay in: Have your partner, relative, neighbor, or babysitter take the kids for a few hours and reclaim your house for you. Pop in a movie, cook or order in a meal you’ve been craving and spend some time alone. I won’t tell if you use that time to take a long, luxurious bath or a nap
