Take 10 Tuesday


As a mom, I know the day gets away from me very quickly. Between dropping off the kids here and picking them up there, trying to clean and do laundry, cook meals, break up fights, pick up toys, change diapers, there's little time left in the day for me.

I'm instituting Take 10 Tuesday. I'm giving myself 10 minutes out of the day for just me. Maybe listen to some favorite songs, read a few pages in a book or magazine, meditate, simply shut my eyes, whatever it is, take 10 minutes to yourself. Feel free to share what you did with those precious 10 minutes.

Today, I am going to go into my bedroom and take 10 minutes to begin reading a new book, "Rococo" by Adriana Trigiani.


  1. 10 minute per day, its perfect, but i cant do this. If i like this story, im trying to finish that book ASAP, and the next day im too tired :)Sometimes, reading hours and hours without breaks...

  2. Ten minute break is a must. I have to do this every night aftier I put Lil Manl down and take 10 minutes to devote to my blog. Writing post and publishing them or putting them in draft form for another time. My blog is like my journal and that helps me out wonders! Great post:) Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comment and follow! I am following your blog as well....YAY for blog hops!


  3. I love this idea! We could all use a bit of a time out! I usually have my "ME" time after everyone has gone to bed for the night!
