Healthy Mommy: Me Time

Woman Lying in a Bathtub Holding a MugI frequently write about the challenges moms face in terms of getting healthy (and staying there).

One of the things I’ve been thinking about recently is the challenge of Me Time.

On my personal blog, I shared a little story last week: What I learned about Me Time (and about myself) when my husband and kids went out of town for three days (yes, leaving me blissfully alone in my own house for the first time in ages).

It was an interesting lesson–and not what I expected.

Also, a while ago, on my YMC blog I wrote about the issue of Me Time from the perspective of a WOHM (work-outside-the-home mom). It was a sister post to a fellow YMC blogger’s take on Me Time as a SAHM.

So, how about you? If you’re a mom–how do you carve out Me Time? And how important do you think it is, in terms of overall health?
