  • I started going to the gym in the mornings. There is a 2 hour window where there is a child watch at the YMCA. So I go 4x a week, if the babies are okay to go. This is my alone and quiet time and helps me destress and therefor have a much better day overall. It's a morning thing, and I have noticed my mood is better when I go...which means their moods are better. Plus they interact with other babies and todders for a little over an hour. At the end of the night, I get on here, watch tv and always read a bit of a book in bed. And I drink a glass of wine after babies are in bed too.....that too is my treat and indulgence.

  • Run a hot bath, turn out the lights, light some candles, and put on some Enya. Everybody knows they better not disturb me when I bust out the Enya.lol

  • I some times read, seldom watch TV or On Demand..........take a 30 min. meditation break when time allows.

    A nice long shower is my first resort though!
