I have an atypical working schedule that forces me at times to work long hours without a break. My trick for relaxing when I get home is to take a bath- usually that my partner has run for me- sprinkled with Epsom salt and some drops of lavender oil. I slip in and enjoy the sound of soothing music with the lights dimmed. Sometimes, I’m lucky to get a massage, too!

With 3 young kids, time for myself is rare. Every time I “plan” a day to relax tomorrow or next week, there’s always something that comes up: a sick child, an unexpected appointment, an outing, etc.
So, when I really need time to rest, I delegate to daddy! I am fortunate to have a wonderful man that is very present in our family life. So I leave the kids in his hands while I go lock myself in the bedroom. I get out my headphones, put on my favourite music and do what I want, like playing games on my cell or just laying in bed.

When I need to take a break, I make a little cocoon for myself. I take time my time running a hot bath with my favourite bath bomb from Lush, lighting my precious stress relief candle from Bath and Body Works; I exfoliate and use hydrating masks all while reading a good book. I love books by Valérie Chevalier; you can read them in small doses (perfect for moms) or in one go when you have a little more time. When I need to take a break from the life of being a mom with 4 kids, the winning combination for me is to read and take care of myself in a soothing atmosphere.
When do you treat yourself to moments of relaxation?
