TAKE TIME TO MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF



Every mom is a working mom. Whether you work outside of the home, have a home-based business, teach your children at home, or devote yourself to full-time homemaking, you are a working mom.  And if you are a single career woman, you may also find yourself swamped with responsibilities.  Women often feel overwhelmed with all the needs to be accomplished, and feel guilty about taking time for themselves.  Be assured that a few private moments every day isn't selfish.  A saintly grandmother once reminded me that you can take better care of your families and other responsibilities if you first take care of yourself.
 
So take time to refresh yourself.  Every day, even if it's just for 20 minutes, take time out to do something that pleases you.  Schedule a long hot bath with the door locked.  Take a brisk walk.  Go window shopping.  Schedule time with friends.  It's vital to get support from those who can relate to your every day concerns.
 
If you commute to work, make this part of your relaxing time.  Listen to inspirational CD's or music that you especially enjoy.  If you take the bus, read your favorite magazine or take along that book you never find time to finish at home.
 
Take time for devotions and prayer.  You don't need to spend hours in quiet time, although that can be a very meaningful experience.  Even five minutes a day reading a devotional or a chapter in the Bible, and a brief conversation with God can give you renewed strength to meet the day's challenges.
 
Take time to tell yourself that you are worth some special time, just for you, doing something that makes you happy and better able to face the rest of the day.
