(Win it!) 5 Ways for Moms to Relax #MomSneak #StreamTeam


5 Ways for Moms to Relax

As a Boy Mom, you have my sympathy that there is never enough time for "me time." Let's break it down:

There are only 168 hours in a week. I spend 
  • 40 hours working 
  • 10 hours driving to/from work 
  • 56 hours sleeping (or trying to sleep) 
  • 7 hours preparing meals
  • 7 hours exercising
  • 7 hours getting ready for work
  • 7 hours getting my children ready in the morning
  • 7 hours giving them baths, brushing their teeth, and reading bedtime stories. 
This leaves just under 5 hours/day of giving my children attention and fitting in "me time."    The hours go by quickly!  In today's post, I'll share a few quick ways to do the "Mom Sneak" for "me time."

1. Run with your children using a jogging stroller and/or bike.
Multitask by exercising with your children.  I put my youngest in a jogging stroller and my older son on a bike for runs to the park.  It's a great way to pack exercise and quality time into my day.

2. Do the Mom Sneak with Netflix.
I keep my iPad in my purse so that I am able to enjoy Netflix whenever possible. Smuggle a tablet into the bathroom for a little GLOW during your morning routine, but be forewarned: distracted makeup application may result in a look as bold as one of the gorgeous ladies of the 80s. And if you find yourself overstaying your welcome in the grocery store parking lot watching The Walking Dead, don’t feel guilty.  Follow #MomSneak for additional fun ideas from other moms!



3. Set up a Make-Your-Own Dinner Night.
Everyone loves a "Make-Your-Own Dinner Night." Set up the ingredients for your family to make their own tacos, pizzas, or sandwiches. It will save you time on meal preps, plus children love to make their own creations.

4. Hold Cleaning Sprees.
We play a game where we all clean as much as possible in 10 minutes. All of our family members clean as quickly as possible in a small increment of time. It's amazing how much we accomplish!  We then enjoy a Netflix show together as a reward.

5. Organize Play Dates.
As a mom, it's often tough to find time to spend with friends. Organize play dates to spend time with other moms while your children play.  It it is a rainy day, plan to watch the new The Adventures of Puss in Boots Season 5 that comes out on July 28th.

In addition to the fun Mom Sneak ideas above, let me also share some fun releases to watch with your children.
