There’s a point along the road where spare time becomes a precious commodity in a mother’s life. Proper me-time is always needed within a schedule that somehow fits children, husband and work in an almost constant manner.

To begin with, there’s nothing selfish about craving this bits of spare time: it has to do with mental and emotional stability, elements that actually help to keep a functional life balance.

Modern moms often find themselves overwhelmed, absorbed by demanding routines and tasks. Some might even reach the point of not knowing what to do when a couple of alone hours come around (which, by the way, is utterly frustrating). To avoid that case scenario, we’re bringing options. Want to seize those prized hours of yours? Don’t overthink it: here’s a list of 5 ideas that will get you going:

1. Get physical. Exercise not only will help you stay fit, but will also clear your mind. Many people think that going for a run is the opposite of relaxation; however, exercise is one of the best ways to blow out some steam and relieve stress in a short period of time.

2. Spa day (of course). Even if this means that you can go get your nails done, go for it. Taking time aside for spa-related stuff means mindless relaxation, and you’ll feel beautiful after it. Don’t forget that self-esteem plays a key role in our everyday life: it’s important to take good care of it.

3. Dance. There’s a million dancing classes to attend out there. From salsa and bachata to tango and rockabilly, dancing is an exhilarating exercise that also happens to be fun. 

4. Game on! Online games are a no-brainer when it comes to me-time. Not only you’ll be able to relax and have fun, but also there’s a chance to make money out of them. Ever heard of online casinos? Just like real-life ones, but without the noise! Ready to relax and make some extra money at the same time?

5. Socialize. This seems obvious, but engaging into social activities that are not part of the routine is healthy and good for the spirit. Arrange plans with friends or family that aren’t in the daily radar and catch up. You’ll probably end up laughing more than you expected.
