15 Me-Time Ideas for Busy Mums

On an average day, how much me-time do you get? May you be thinking ‘Me time? What me-time?’ and you’d be right. This is because according to a study, the average mum only gets 17 minutes to herself a day.

As mum’s, we are constantly on the go – our work is never done. But we should also make some time for ourselves. Why? Because although our kids are our world, we’re important, too. You may be a mum but you’re still a person and you deserve some time to yourself.

Having said that, it can be difficult. To help, here are some me-time ideas.

20 Minute Ideas

  • Put on your favourite playlist and dance around – it’s the perfect way to workout, release those endorphins and reduce stress.
  • Take a relaxing soak in the tub knowing you won’t be interrupted. Add bubbles, candles and enjoy a cuppa for a truly relaxing 20 minutes.
  • Have a power nap. Sometimes there’s nothing better than catching a few Z’s.
  • Unwind with a good book. You could read a chapter or zone out with an audiobook.
  • Talk a walk. You can stretch your legs, enjoy some fresh air and clear your head.
  • Turn your home into a yoga studio. It’s the perfect way to stretch and unwind.

2-Hour Ideas

  • Go for lunch. Whether you take yourself out or catch-up with a friend, you can enjoy just being an adult for a couple of hours.
  • Enjoy a long drive. Turn up those tunes, sing along at the top of your voice and stop at a drive-thru.
  • Put your feet up with a film. You could go to the cinema or relax on the sofa in your pyjamas. Either way, popcorn is mandatory.
  • Pamper yourself. Book an appointment to get your hair or nails done.
  • Go on a date night with your partner. You can enjoy some quality couple time.

Full Day Ideas

  • Take a spa day. Treat yourself to a day retreat, like Urban Retreat‘s luxury Moroccan spas, where you’ll be seriously pampered.
  • Go on a mini road trip. Venture alone, with a friend or your partner and explore a new city or enjoy a day in the country. Make sure to stop off somewhere lovely for lunch.
  • Spend the day shopping. You deserve to treat yourself to some clothes that aren’t covered in baby sick or stains.
  • Or enjoy a day in bed. And yes, chocolate is mandatory for this one.

Hopefully, these can help you to enjoy some well-deserved me-time. Do you have any other ideas?
