Is It OK to Have “Me” Time?

Posted by   + Show Post

Our lives are so full of obligations to our kids, our jobs and our families, how are we supposed to find time to do the things we love? Should we even try? Alicia Ybarbo, a TV Producer and author of "Today's Moms" and "Sh*tty Mom" joins the conversation. 

Do you think it's okay to have "me" time?

I agree!

 Absolutely.  I think it's important.  It makes you a better person, mom, friend etc...We all need time to ourselves once in a while.  :)

Good point mama:)

I think me time will be more available once they are more self sufficient. I cant tell a toddler that doesnt take naps anymore to sit in his room for an hour.

Very true. 

Quoting .Angelica.:

i think some "me" time is needing to unwind and destress, an overstressed mom (or parent) isn't good for the kids.

Couldn't of said it better myself:)

Quoting KristinRox:

I think "me" time makes a mom better. Taking time to take care of themselves makes taking care of the little ones that much easier. ME time is an important part of being a great mother.

I should get back into running. I loved it when I was running everyday. It IS great me time. 

Quoting pootersmomi:

Of course! I think it's mandatory. I've started running. It's great me time.
