I found out a year ago how important “me time” is for a mom.  I was getting super stressed out and didn’t know why and what was wrong.  After talking to friends, I realized I wasn’t taking time for myself.  I was going, going, going for the kids and my husband, but wasn’t doing anything for me.  Once I made a few changes, primarily taking  a little time out of my day to go to the gym, I felt a huge sense of relief and started to enjoy life again.That little bit of “me time” was just what I needed to revive and refresh myself and to be happy again.

Dove Ice Cream Miniatures conducted a survey of over 400 mothers and found that 70 percent of these multi-tasking moms are taking time for themselves each day!  I can’t believe I was one of the 30% that was neglecting myself some “me time”.  Even grabbing a sweet treat and savoring each decadent bite is a way to take a moment out of your day for yourself.
