  • Enjoying a break while the kids nap. And For the new mothers out there, espically my friend joanne who has recently started materinty leave, it becomes had because of the kids. Nonetheless, this does not mean that it is impossible have some time for other important things. When the kids take a nap, it becomes easier to relax. For instance, it becomes easy complete your household chores as your kids sleep. There are also good learning games to jog the mind.


  • Sleeping early.  I know that youre thinking that would be great but its hardly practical.Going to bed early makes it easy to wake up the following day while fresh and ready for the day. Waking up early makes it possible to have some you-time before going to work. It accords the chance to enjoy breakfast without having to look at the watch. imamgine gaining 30 mintues a day, 2-3 hours a week by going to bed 30 minutes early each day. Ok i know that the math doesnt had up but I’m not taking about logic I’m taking about the qualtiy you time that you gain just becuase you get quality sleep ( so that when you are awake you can enjoy life more).


  •  Vacations.  Alright!!!  My favorite kind of time ( apart from sleeping that is)It is good to take a break – its as simple as that. This will create you time in abundance tto do the really important things. For instance, taking a trip to be in a different environment is exception. it will help you get back to work reenergized and strong.
