30 Self Care Activities for When You Are Short on Time

by Linda B Hurd, October 09, 2019

Time sometimes can feel as if it is not on your side. You can put off daily and even weekly. If you are a serious procrastinator then you can put off for months at a time. Pssst… no judgment from my corner of the universe. However, you can always try to squeeze in a simple self-care activity to uplift you. Do not overthink it. It should not require a lot of money nor effort to make yourself smile. 

I understand how we can become so selfless as women, daughters, mothers, and spouses. We still must carve out a little time to take our minds from the never-ending demands of life. Being that I am a wife and mother to a very active toddler I created a list of self-care activities that you too might find helpful. Are you intrigued to find out more?
