Tactical Tuesday (Making time for you)

Welcome back to another week of #TacticalTuesdays,  which I am co-hosting with the lovely Vicky from The Tactical Mummy. I'm loving that many of you have been joining in with our new linky so far. 

If you haven’t joined in with #TacticalTuesdays  before the idea behind the posts is that you share with us your Tactical Parenting Hacks for the week.It can be anything as simple as that you have cooked fish fingers or a clever idea you have had to entertain your children. 

Every Tuesday we share a post this can be new or from the archives and we invite you do the same as part of this linky. The following week we will share one of our favourite posts and link back to your blog. 

Please don't forget you can use the hashtag #TacticalTuesdays over on Facebook, twitter and Instagram) 

If you would like to link up please grab our badge and share with us one of your hacks of the week. We are looking forward to reading your posts.

Our featured post of the week is 25 Mark making resources by rabbitideas.
I love that she has shared some ideas of things I've never thought of using.

As a parent it is so important to make time for you. Self care is important as without making time for ourselves we can burn out. 

I make sure that I have time for myself doing something I love each day. This can be when Blake is in bed or now that Blake will be in Pre-School a few hours a day I have a bit of time too. 

So what are my favourite me time activities? 

Reading
Reading is 100% my favourite thing to do in my spare time. I love to fit in reading a few chapters before bed or when if I have a free moment in a day. 

Youtube/Netflix/DVDs
When I'm not reading I do love to find something to watch on either Youtube or Netflix or even just pop a DVD on. 

Looking after my health
I've not long rejoined slimming world and so once a week on a Thursday evening for a little over an hour its nice to be able to focus on self improvement in that respect. 

Bath/pampering
Sometimes its just nice to sink in a hot bath and pop a face mask on. I have a post coming soon about products for getting that pamper/spa feel at home. 

Exercise
Now that Blake is in Pre-School I have promised myself that I will use some of that time to exercise more this can be by going for a walk or fitting 15/20 mins of zumba or a workout DVD into my day. 

A mug of coffee/tea/ hot chocolate
If I have an extremely busy day than one of my favourite things to do is take some time out just to be able to have a hot drink (sometimes cake too) 

What do you like to do for "Me time"?

  2. I do like to have long bubble baths and watch Netflix in my me time. Also, hot chocolate is definitely a must, especially now that winter is just around the corner.

  6. My favourite thing to do is just take 5 minutes to lay in bed and completely zone out, sometimes I use a meditation app! xxx

  8. The main thing I miss since having a toddler is reading. I hate being interrupted and it is so hard to concentrate when you are exhausted or know someone might wake any minute. I really need to try and carve out some more time for it. #TacticalTuesdays

  9. Reading in the bath is my treat to myself 20 minutes 3-4 times a week, just enough to restore me :) #tacticaltuesdays
