Lock in that night out!

You don’t have enough time to fit in all the things you have to do — laundry, sleep, eating, dishes, appointments, other chores. So, when it comes to trying to fit in spending time with your bestie into the schedule, it can seem near impossible.

We all know what happens when we don’t find time to take care of ourselves. Media and experts have been talking about the importance of self-care, especially for mothers, for a long time. If we don’t find that time we risk burning out and if you’ve not experienced burn out, it’s rough. Everything seems grey, you’re tired and no amount of caffeine can fix it.

If you have been putting time with your best friends on the back burner because you haven’t been able to justify making it a priority, you will want to change that. So, call up your girl squad, mark the date in the calendar, and whatever you do, don’t cancel. Yes, even if your child get sick — the time away you have with your bestie is important too.
