Need Some Alone Time, Mom? Here's What You Should Jump On - Literally! - to Get It!

My best recommendation for moms to spend some high-quality alone time would be to purchase a new or used bike and outfit it with a few baskets. When I get time for myself, I grab a beach towel, water bottle, journal and picnic, jump on my bike, and head out. It gets me out in nature, keeps me fit and brings me much joy. 

It gets my mind going. I download many of my best ideas while on my bike. Running errands is also fun, hence a few baskets. I find my solo rides not only relaxing, but creatively inspiring and self-healing, as well. Give your bike another look if it has remained dormant or used only for family rides.
