Taking Time for Me This Summer #PGeveryday #sponsored

Me time this summer P&Geveryday #P&Geveryday

I’m actually pretty lucky in that my husband has always made it possible for me to have “me” time. That doesn’t mean I always take it… as most moms can attest to, we are used to putting everyone else first that it’s sometimes hard to put ourselves first.

I realized though that it really is important to take care of ‘me’ so I can give my best to those around me.

I was reading some articles on the P&Geveryday website recently and one particular article under the Family Life category just jumped out at me.

The article Mom Confessional: I’m Making Time for Me This Summer struck a chord and reinforced what I have been thinking for awhile now. Women, especially moms need to take “me” time.

And the summer is a great time to take me time.

I especially like the idea of writing a summer mission statement (my summer to do or summer bucket list, if you will).

Me time Pedicure

I think I’ll add getting a manicure twice a month and since I don’t like bike riding… I’ll take a walk at least 3 times a week and enjoy the evening summer weather.

This is just one of the reasons I love P&Geveryday… articles that give me the nudge I need to put me first. Articles that empower women. Not to mention some really delicious recipes and great beauty tips under the Food and Beauty categories.

You will also find a Health & Wellbeing, Home & Garden and Our Brands categories. When I run across a great website that I know my friends and readers can benefit from, I want to share it!  I’m sure the P&Geveryday website will become one of your favorites, just as it has mine.

Go like P&Geveryday on Facebook for more great tips, ideas, and inspiration.

    I don’t think I’ll have much me time this summer 😉 It’s the last one we have as a family before we send our daughter off to college, so we’re keeping it focused around her as much as we can.

  2. I usually take me time in the form of reading or vegging out in front of a movie or catching up on a TV show. P.S. You got your post up fast! 🙂

  3. Crystal says:

    Enjoy! It’s so important to remember yourself in the rush of mom life. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. I always take more time for me and then my alarm goes off and I wake up! hahaha 🙂 It is so true being a mom it’s hard to find the time but so important! I need to work harder on this!

  5. Crystal says:

    Having “me” time is so important, but it’s sometimes so hard to get. I know I really need to do it more often. Just an hour here and there away from it all really helps.

  6. I hope I get some me time this summer. It’s hard with the kids home everyday..

  7. This summer I want to take some time to read and I’d like to go out with my friends a few times. My friend and I went to see Tim McGraw on Friday, it was so nice to get out!

  8. Michelle says:

    monthly pedicures! Theyre a must for me in the summer. I love the indulgence and relaxation they provide, and quiet time!

  9. I’m really looking forward to just taking some time offline to do things I enjoy with my family. The tough part about being a lifestyle blogger is that it’s like I’m working 24/7 since every moment is like a story to be documented.

  10. Jennifer H says:

    I’m headed to NY for a blogging trip, that will be a nice quick getaway for me. 🙂

    I think it’s awesome that your husband helps you get that much needed time for yourself. I cut back on work for the summer and have enjoyed some much needed relaxation.

  12. Angela says:

    I am taking me time this summer by taking some time off work every week to do things I want to do rather than need to do. And a regular pedicure and walks are included.

  13. Terri S says:

    I tend to relax more in the summer. I like to sit outside and read in the sun and nap a little.
