WAHM or SAHM? How to Create "Me-Time" Sanctuaries in Unexpected Places! by Cheryl Leahy

As a work-at-home mom, I don't get a lot of time to myself. Yes, we all need our "me" time, but what happens when you just can't be alone? I have created a few "mom sanctuaries!" 

  • One is my car: I keep a stash of my favorite snacks and have a special playlist. My kids are strapped in, safe and entertained, while I take a little me time. 
  • Another sanctuary is my shower. I purchased a waterproof Bluetooth speaker so I can stream non-kid-friendly music while my son watches a little TV and my daughter naps. 

Even if you can't be alone, create an environment with your favorite things and "escape!"
