Celebrate #MomsMeTime with a $100 LuLuLemon Giveaway

As a Mom I’m a firm believer of finding some “MeTime” to dedicate to yourself. These days it’s so difficult to find even 5 minutes some days with the kids home, the dog going crazy and life just being life…..but taking time to rest and recharge is invaluable for peace of mind.

Now some of you are probably laughing at me because your children are scampering around your feet or someone needs your attention, but I am really encouraging you to focus upon your own health in some way right now.

Are you tired, over-worked, ignoring stress or would just love a little bit of the day for yourself?

I give you permission to take that time, believe me when I say that it’s not in your best interest to become run down and exhausted.

Do something kind for yourself! Pick up that book you’ve been meaning to read, meet with a good friend or hey how about beginning a new activity? Whatever it is, don’t wait…now is the time to jump into positive changes!

To celebrate this #MomsMeTime focus I’ve teamed up with some pretty fabulous women, Stacie, Tammi, Jody, Stacey and myself are happily treating 1 Canadian to a shopping trip to LuLuLemon with a $100 gift card!!!

Who can say no to a LuLuLemon giveaway?

    You are spot on. Moms need to take care of ourselves so we can take care of others. Played tennis with a friend yesterday afternoon. Felt guilty on the way there because there were other things I could have been doing around the house but felt great on the way home.. Far more productive as it cleared my mind and boosted my soul.

    I take time out for myself by doing yoga twice a week, and every few weeks I carve out some time on a weekend to do some scrapbooking

    I wait til my little one is asleep, slather on a face mask, pour a glass of wine and soak in the tub with a good book til I’m wrinkly or the water is cool (whichever comes first!) haha :)

    My me time happens when my daughter goes to bed. It may be watching a favourite tv show, or spending some time on the computer catching up with friends.

  8. Caryn Coates says

    I have 7 children (3 of them babies) so I dont usually have time for myself but a 10 min bath is my me time

  9. Andrea Amy says

    When I get the chance, Love to have a nice long bath and read a book (but that doesn’t happen often). Normally I sit on the computer at night after the kids go to bed and watch something on Netflix.

  10. Lisa Tennant says

    I play baseball on Monday nights!! That is my night because the rest of the week is spent running around doing stuff for the kids and the hubby!

  11. Winnie B says

    After my LO is asleep, with a nice cold drink and some snacks and relax on the couch and read a good book.

  12. starla says

    for me time I go running, my husband doesn’t get it but he loves how I come back refocused and in a good mood :)

    My daughter has a sleep disorder so there is no time after she goes to bed as I am usually there before she is! lol So I get up before everyone else and “indulge” in the quiet along with my morning coffee! I usually spend that time on my computer or reading a book. Would love the “excuse” to go shopping though! Great giveaway!

    I could really use this to motivate me to back to the gym!!!!!!!!!!!
    Me time is important and I value it strongly and highly suggest it to all moms !!!!!!

  16. Emma says

    Wake up an hour early to enjoy my cup of Joe. Occasionally I swap babysit time with friend to have a me time out in town.

  17. Rebecca Palmer says

    We often forget to take care of ourselves in our quest to take care of others in our life. Downtime is important as is doing something just for you – time to read, a night out, a walk.

  18. Gail says

    Hi Julie! Love your blog! Sitting on the back of our boat, drinking coffee, alternating staring at the water and surfing the internet = the perfect “me” time. :)

  19. Cathy C says

    I take time to myself by chatting with my friends on twitter. I shut the door and ignore the family for a bit.

  20. Lisa A. says

    Me time is going for a good, long run… by myself. :) I love hanging with my kiddos & hubs and even running with them but a nice country run is all about me doing something for me (and in turn, so I can be better for them). :) Tks for the chance – its a fantastic giveaway.

  21. Chantal Hunter says

    Awesome giveaway! And so perfect for a mom who needs to give back to herself. Good luck everyone:)

    Long walks really clear my head. If I can have 1 really long walk, I will do 3 or 4 shorter ones…..breathe!

    Hey Julie, Just found your blog through Healthline and the 15 Best Alcoholism Health Blogs of 2013 : D

    Everyday I try to walk in the morning and every night I watch TV or a movie for at least an hour, (reading puts me to sleep) – it helps me shut my brain off for awhile and relax.. It may sound boring but it’s my routine and it keeps my batteries charged and my mind clear for everything in between : D

  25. Dian Anderson says

    Just found your amazing blog. thank You; I go and sit in my garden and relax. I love listening to the birds

  26. says

    I take time for myself when I practice yoga. I’m not a huge yogi or into fitness in general but I’m thankful for every time I take time to care for my mind and body. And most recently taking the time out of the week to spend with my new boyfriend has been a great way for me to escape the stress of the work week. Sometimes i’m too scatterbrained during my yoga practice but spending time with my boyfriend has been the best escape. :)

  27. says

    I try to take time to do things that I enjoy. Baking or cooking are favourites for me. Watching a favourite oldie on Netflix (only 22 minutes if it is a sitcom!).

  28. says

    I don’t get much alone time with a three year old at home and a classroom with 5 babies at work. I take care of myself by keeping up with regular doctor’s check ups for some ongoing health problems. I finally realized that putting my health on the back burner was not going to help me effectively care for my loved ones, now or in future.

    My alone time is after my kid goes to bed. So important for them to have a regular bedtime so that I have regular me-time!

  30. says

    Running my own business is hard work and often involves working 7 days a week. To stay sane, I walk my dogs every day through the ravine areas for at least one hour and train twice a week with a trainer. Books are another source of downtime. But, most important of all, I make time for my friends with regular lunches, book club and girls’ nights out. New LuLuLemon pants would be perfect for dog walking and my workouts.
