    I agree completely. I never understood the need for “me time” before I became a stay-at-home-mom, but now I realize that my break time at work was the only me time I needed back then. Now, I am with kids 24/7, and me time is a necessity. I go to a moms’ group once a week. A trusted grandmotherly woman watches my kids for 2 hours while I chat with my beautiful girlfriends. It’s perfect.

    Amen. When I teach first year college students, we do a time management exercise where they plug in their “must dos” for a week: school, work, transportation, study, and annoying time-gobblers like watching tv, internet, video games, etc. Once their identified their weaknesses, I have them all schedule two 30 minute “breaks” each day as buffers in case they run late, or something unexpected happens. Even if it does they have 10 or 15 minutes of down time to breath, reflect and center. Im hoping it turns into a stress management exercise! : )

     Love that idea. We should build that into one of our challenges. 🙂

    The TimeMan  agrees that we ALL need some high quality “goof off” time without the guilt.
