One question moms ask me all the time is this: How do I make time for myself? It took me years of practicing (and lots of trial and error) before I discovered the secret sauce of what I call "ME time." ME time has 4 components and lucky for you, they come in the form of an acronym: ICAN

If you would like to learn more about "ME time", I’m offering this training as a free download.

Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.

— M. Scott Peck

Remember, "ME time" is about doing what you need to do to feel the way you want to feel. So, if you want to feel more calm and collected spending time with a friend who talks really fast and has a lot going on herself is not the best use of your ME time. However, if you want to feel connected with someone who really loves you going out with a friend is the perfect way to spend "ME time." 

So right now, in this moment, how do you want to feel? OK, now go do what you need to do to FEEL that way. (Could also be a movement in your body, a deep breath, a moment of stillness or and long sigh.)



You can do it!
