How to Take a Break as a WAHM

As a work-at-home mom (WAHM), you have it harder than most people. You basically have to work two full-time jobs. You have your job that pays the bills, and your job as a mother. The most important thing to remember as a WAHM, is that you need to take time for yourself in order to keep your sanity. Even if the house is a mess and you are neck deep in work, without those little breaks all to yourself, you would literally have a meltdown. Here are some ideas about things to do during your WAHM breaks.

• Take a Walk: Going outdoors can be really good for your mood.
• Have a Bubble Bath: This one is a no-brainer because it is very relaxing and makes you feel refreshed when you are done.
• Read a Chapter in Your Favorite Book: Entertainment is always a great way to take a break. It makes you forget about the stresses of your life for a while so you can unwind.
• Shop Online: It can take too long to go to the store, and lugging the kids around is out of the question, so why not do some browsing online? Daily Deals can help you find some great discounts and you’ll have fun while you’re at it.
• Work on a Hobby: Whether it is sewing, knitting, scrapbooking or any other craft, a hobby is a great thing to do during a break because it will make you happy, which makes it easier to get through the day.
• Watch a Short TV Program: It might be mindless, but sometimes that what you need to relax so you can do the things you need to when the show is over.
• Take a Nap: Nothing is more refreshing and energizing than an afternoon nap. If your kids are resting, why not take a break yourself for a little snooze?
