Simplify the Season Challenge Day 5: Take a Breather!

The holiday season is an extremely hectic time for moms. Today's challenge is to take a breather and create some "me time" for yourself! 

Here are some "me time" ideas:

  • Start the day by treating yourself. When you have a bunch of errands to run or Christmas shopping to do, start your trip off by going to your favorite coffee or bagel shop with a magazine and relax.
  • Make a lunch date! The next time you are out shopping around lunch time, call a friend you want to catch up with and invite her to lunch.
  • Get lost for a moment. At the end of a long day, grab a book and read for enjoyment. Let your mind take a break from your to do list and escape into a relaxing or steamy novel!
  • Soak off stress! Run a bath, light some candles, and soak in some relaxing bath salts.

What do you do to relax during the holidays? What was the last thing you did for yourself?


One mom who participates in all 10 days of the challenge will be entered to win a holiday prize pack!

I relax by listening to Christmas music while testing lights or watching a holiday movie.

Been a while but I think I'm going to allow a cheat and have a banana nut muffin.

I read every night before going to bed. This morning I am having breakfast with a friend at a tea house.

I love to watch my favorite Christmas movies and drink hot chocolate while curled up on the couch under a soft, cozy blanket.

I try to take a break, when I can.
I relax by, taking a hot bath, and reading a good book.

I relax by watching my shows all by myself after everyone has gone to bed.
The last thing I did for myself was yesterday when I got a dr pepper from Sonic after dropping the kids off at school.
