If you are a parent, spending time for yourself can be challenging to do. You might feel guilty or like you are neglecting your children and family, but there is no reason to worry! There are some ways that you can enjoy parenting while also taking the time for yourself. This blog post will share a few great ideas with you about how to spend quality time when they’re not around.

Have a Shower, No Matter What

After a long day, you deserve to have some time for yourself. So take your shower and make it as luxurious as possible with products designed just for the skin on your body. A hot bath is also great! Just soak in there and enjoy the moment while cleaning up after being busy all day. Having a shower will also wake you up and get your blood flowing to help beat the fatigue.

Go Shopping When They’re Asleep

It may seem like an obvious one, but you’d be surprised how many times moms get stuck in the house with no time to look after themselves. When your baby’s asleep, go out and do anything that you want! It doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy; buy a book at Target, take yourself on an ice cream date, or stop by a favorite store. It will help recharge your battery so you can handle the next phase of your day.

Get Beauty Treatments at Home

One of the best ways to pamper and feel good about yourself is with professional beauty treatments. However, you can enjoy a great spa experience at home without breaking the bank by using some simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen or bathroom cupboards!

One standard DIY beauty treatment is foot soaks made with Epsom salts. You can bathe your feet in warm water with a handful of salt and then massage it in for 20 minutes. The magnesium sulfate has natural soothing properties that help relieve muscle aches, stimulate circulation, reduce stress levels, and relax tense muscles while softening skin!

You can also have a glass of wine to tone down the anxiety and stresses of your daily life. It may be time to try out the new CBD Vape Juice, which has many relaxation and medical benefits. It is not a time to hold back but to go all out and enjoy yourself. 

Get Through That Boxset During a Feed

There are many ways to take time for yourself, and some of them don’t even need planning! So you can watch that boxset, read the book everyone’s been raving about, or do whatever you enjoy doing when you can make time for yourself is an option.

If you want to plan something but can’t get out of the house because your baby is too young or not well enough, there are loads of things possible from home. Check out a new recipe on YouTube and try it out with someone who has more time than you. 

Use the Many, Many Walks You’ll Take Your Baby On

Parenting is rewarding, but it can also be tricky. When you’re overwhelmed with the responsibility of a new baby and other duties, there’s nothing wrong with taking some time for yourself. But what do you do when you have no time? Take walks! And not just any walk; go as far out from home as you can, and explore.

You may be surprised to find a new shortcut or never-before explored path that will make your future strolls easier and more fun! Plus, it’s an opportunity for some much-needed time alone with your thoughts. 


As a parent, you can’t always spend time with your children. But it’s essential to keep them in the loop about what is happening in your life. That way, when you do have some free time for yourself or need an escape from parenting duties, they’ll know why!
