Being a mom is certainly a full-time position. While there always seems to be one more game to take the children to and more meals to create, moms need quiet time in order to receive the relaxation and peace that is necessary. There are some helpful times in order to receive the peace that is needed at home.
A good starting point for quiet time is to create a spa-like experience. Consider purchasing some bubble bath and having a long soak in the tub. There are many different kinds of bath salts that are designed to rid a body of toxins. When it is time to open and cleanse skin pores, consider investing in a steam sauana. There are plenty of units that are available with plenty of steam sauana accessories that can make such an experience feel amazing. Do not forget to purchase some lotion that hydrates the skin and leaves a smooth feeling that does not go away. Buy a special bathrobe to wear during spa time. It can help remind oneself and others that it is a special time that should not be interrupted.
There is many times where a mom would love to catch up on reading. There may be specific magazines or books that sit in the magazine rack unread for weeks if not months. Therefore, take advantage of the quiet time and get reading. Find a cozy nook in a home or read in bed. Set aside a block of time to get lost in reading. If nothing at home is interesting, go to a bookstore and buy a book that is intriguing. Make it a point to read the book only during quiet times. When that is done, it gives a mom incentive to have frequent quiet time.
Being still is a great idea for a mom who may have plenty of things on her mind. It is good to focus on other items in order to give the mind a break for a brief time. Some moms find that having a short power nap is a huge lift. Others find prayer or doing specific exercises to be a wonderful way of being still and relaxing.
Remember that moms have to create quiet time. It does not happen by itself. When moms have quiet time to themselves, they can feel revitalized and refreshed.
