3. Do something just for you. Saturday morning I walked into a low-lit yoga studio full of strangers. I’m not a yogi. I do some yoga with my kids in our living room, but that’s totally different than actually performing yoga moves in front of people. I caught the instructor’s eye in the mirror giving me questionable glances when I twisted the wrong way a few times, but I did it. I held my tree pose for what seemed like forever and I rocked some warrior poses. I did it just for me. It was an hour where I thought about nothing else but my breathing, and that was a gift. Do something just for you. It might be a trip to Starbucks by yourself or a new pair of spring shoes, but treat yourself…be aware of your wants too, not just your kids’.
4. Have a fun book on your nightstand. I’m not talking about parenting books or how-to-be-a-better-person books, we read enough of that. I’m talking about just for FUN reading. What do you enjoy? Is it Jane Austen, historical fiction, or mysteries? Go to the library this week and stay away from the non-fiction section. Get something just for fun that you can get cozy with at the end of a long day right before you doze off.
