It’s very rare that I can enjoy a peaceful quiet morning by myself. Between mommy duties, home renovations, and work (many exciting new partnerships in the works…), it’s a miracle if I can even shower for more than 15 minutes. Life of a modern mom right?
So when opportunity presents itself, I don’t object. In fact, I wholeheartedly embrace it without shame or guilt. This happened yesterday morning. Unlike this morning when we had to rush Axel to the ER. Who knew that feeding him some healthy peaches would cause him to break out in hives so severe his hands basically doubled in size?! Mr. A, please don’t be mad at mommy, I was just trying to feed you some fruits!
Anyhow, flashback to yesterday morning- I lounged in bed with a hot cup of Chai tea, biscotti, a candle for some zen action, and my poppin notebook that I haven’t been able to live without (thanks JK!).
Enjoyed some solo time as I scribbled down content ideas & inspirations. I highly recommend always having a notebook on hand. Ideas can pop up at any time and it’s always helpful to jot them down before they permanently disappear from your memory bank. Unless you have a photographic memory, then I say “Lucky You!”
Okay, so I’m not going to lie. I also did turn on the TV at the very end for some reality tv catch up time. Sometimes, you just gotta fill your mind with senseless entertainment. I also love love love to watch cooking shows. These are my guiltless pleasures.
If you haven’t found the time to decompress lately, I highly recommend it. Don’t think about it, just do it! Mornings are the best because it gets you ready for the day. Face the world with a fresh mind and some positive energy. It’s very contagious.
What are your guiltless pleasures? Please share!
