Question: I’m a mom of a 2 year old and a 4 week old baby. Life is crazy right now. I just don’t know how I’m going to get any me-time ever again. Will I have a social life again? I feel guilty for even thinking about this when I should just be happy.

Answer: First of all, congratulations on your little bundle. You are serving your little tiny human, day & night and life now revolves around the eating, sleeping and pooping cycle of somebody else. And we all know how demanding the needs of a 2 year old can be too.

Don’t feel guilty. Your feelings are valid and being honest with yourself is the first step to healing.

The best advice I can give you is to take it one day at a time. Plan out small little windows of “me-time” throughout the day, even if they start off with only 15 minutes. Then utilize that time to do something restful and valuable to you. Hot shower, phone-call to a friend, painting your nails, meditation, eating a delicious meal. Whatever it is you choose to do, be present. SOak it in. Eventually, those “me-time” windows will get bigger and yes, you will have a social life again!

The key is to tune-in to yourself to decide how to use what little time you have to give you the greatest impact to your well-being. If you can schedule ahead some longer stretches of “me-time” by leaning on help, you will have more success.

If you want to learn how to experience more joy each day, I teach the 3 T’s for postpartum well-being through coaching. 1. Tune-in. 2. Trade 3. Think Thanks.

It’s a game changer! Be kind to yourself mama.
