30 Things You Can Do With 30 Minutes Of “Me” Time

This is a sponsored post but all thoughts are my own.

When I started this blog back in 2008, one of it’s main purposes was to give me a creative outlet and a way to make time for myself. I had just become a mom and spent my days alone with my baby so I needed someone to talk to and my blog connected me with other moms, something I so desperately was looking for. Over the years my blog has turned into something more so I started looking for other ways to make time for myself.

Since I’m now a busy mom with two school-aged boys and a business that keeps me busy, my time is limited. Usually my “me” time is confined to 15 minute or half hour time frames. Because of this, I’ve had to come up with a list of things I can do in short periods of time and I wanted to share a month’s worth of those ideas with you all because I know all moms can use a break right about now.

30 things you can do with 30 minutes of “me” time
