Hey mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama’s Daily Dose is… we all need some time alone, guilt free. Let’s get moving, before we get interrupted
I don’t need to tell you how important it is to get some time to yourself just some time to relax. And I’m not talking about time yourself to get stuff done around the house and you know, catch up on the laundry or get your work done and things like that I’m talking about like, real time to yourself, maybe you’re just sitting there staring at a wall, maybe you’re reading a book, maybe some time with some friends, that’s not really time yourself or time alone. But you know, it’s something for you, you get what I’m saying here. But we all need that time. And you deserve that time too. So when was the last time that you really carved out some time for yourself, if it’s been a while, I challenge you to make a date with yourself today, put it in your calendar, whatever you need to do, just mark some time off for yourself. We all need some time to just check in with ourselves. We have all this stuff going on outside. And sometimes we just need to sit with ourselves and check what’s going on. On the inside. How are you feeling? Like what are the emotions that are coming up. And that can be really difficult because a lot of times, we just get so busy, busy, busy as moms. And we don’t take the time to really check in with how we’re feeling. Because we’re worried about how everyone else is feeling and everything else that’s going on that our feelings and our needs. get put on the backburner. So as a mom, it’s even more important. And during this holiday season, as I’ve said so many times extra important to take that time for yourself. So do it today. Even like I said yesterday, 30 seconds, that small amount of time is just going to add up and compound over time. And you know what? You don’t need to feel guilty about it either. I heard this awesome thing that it was like about mom guilt. It’s like, do you feel guilty because you’re doing something wrong? Or because you’re doing something different? As soon as you try to do something different and it isn’t in your normal realm of things. Your brain gets a little confused and it’s like, oh, no, I can’t compare this to something that’s happened before. I don’t know what to do. And that’s where that guilt comes in. So if you start feeling guilty for planning this time, or taking this time for yourself, just ask yourself, Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just something different?
Mama, I’m gonna keep repeating this and repeating this until you take that time for yourself and take that time, guilt free as well. And join us for the mama meditation on Sunday, December 19.
