Making Time For “Me Time” is SO Important #AveenoCA

Disclosure: This post is in partnership with Aveeno Canada. As always, opinions are all mine.

Being a mom is the most rewarding experience one could ever imagine. It can also be very busy, stressful, and chaotic. Especially with seven kids. Sometimes it can be hard to find time for myself, and up until recently, I didn’t give it much thought. Do I need time to myself? Won’t I get that soon enough when they are all grown up and out of the house? The answer is simple: YES. You, really do need some me time.

I work from home, I homeschool and the last two weeks my other two kids who were left in school we had to pull out. So, to say it’s been busy is an understatement. It’s been ongoing chaos. I love it, but I stopped to think the other da when was the last time I truly had some “me time”? I couldn’t remember.

When I go to the store, I bring 1-2 kids when I take the dogs for walks 1-2 kids come, and no matter where I am in the house, even the bathroom, there’s always kids banging on the door or barging in. I can’t remember when the last time was I truly had some me time, so it was time. It was the time I made time for myself, and often.

Creating more personal time for ourselves as moms is essential. If we don’t take care of ourselves how can we properly caring for our kids? Well, until recently that didn’t come to my mind. I was focusing solely on my children and making sure all their needs and wants were met, meanwhile letting myself just wait off in the distance. I know for me it’s just always been like that. For years my husband was at work during all the time we were awake, so I just focused on my kids, and there was no question, once they had their naps, went to school or went to bed I’d enjoy a bubble bath, read or do what I wanted. Now, with the kids being older with different bedtimes, all the kids out of school and me working from home there hasn’t been much time for me to think about myself. Big mistake.

When I partnered with Aveeno for this post, I had no idea how much I needed it. I needed products strictly for myself to not only make myself feel better but look better, and be better.

My skin right now needs attention badly. After seven pregnancies, my skin is feeling the aftermath. My skin is dry, and a lot of times can be oily which is the worst feeling. Keeping my skin moisturized is something I need to dedicate more time to. Aveeno’s new Daily Moisturizing Yogurt Collection helps with that.

This line is formulated with Active Naturals Oatmeal and enriched with the nutrients found in Greek yogurt, this unique formula revitalizes and instantly saturates dry skin while leaving it feeling moisturized. It provides an indulgent experience that is good for skin, as well as the senses, to treat you at home, every day.

Taking a few minutes to yourself after a shower or bubble bath is good for the soul. I use Aveeno’s new Daily Moisturizing Yogurt body wash in the shower, and then I find sitting down after my shower, lathering myself up with Aveeno’s new Daily Moisturizing Yogurt body yogurt, has done wonders for the softness, and dryness of my skin.

My skin feels more hydrated and soft. Being able to have a shower during the day and then take the extra 5-10 minutes afterward to pamper myself has done a lot for my mood and general attitude too. I am now certain us moms need that little 5-10 minute block every single day, to just be quiet and focus on us. Women are so busy making decisions for others that they often neglect taking time for themselves. Take that 5-10 minutes, and enjoy it.

You deserve it, ladies, we are so busy worrying about everyone and everything else, it’s time to give ourselves a little bit of pampering and Aveeno’s new Daily Moisturizing Yogurt Collection is just the thing to help you pamper!

What little things do you do to give yourself some “me” time?
