As a mom, the idea of taking “me” time can be stressful. Just planning a time to go somewhere, making sure the kids are watched, then leaving and worrying…is it really “me” time?

Sometimes a better way to go is to take a few minutes at home, where you can spend some time rejuvenating, rather than packing up to go somewhere. Especially with kids headed back to school this time of year, there’s just a bit of extra time while they are gone to allow yourself to take a small break.

Here are 3 Ways You Can Pamper Yourself Without Leaving Home

First, Kick Back with a Magazine:

People Magazine has an amazing PEOPLE® Rewards Club that is simple, and special treat. The rewards system gives you a free copy of PEOPLE® after you purchase three. Simple as that! You can sign up and start logging your rewards right away. We live right up the road from a Winn-Dixie grocery story, so that’s where I grab the most recent copy every Friday. Perfect for taking some time on the weekend!

The process to join is super simple.

You purchase your three copies, and save the receipts. Then, head to your rewards login to upload your receipts.  Then, you will receive a voucher for a free Magazine in the mail OR a FREE 1 Month Subscription to Pandora.

AND check out the Giveaway they are offering!!!

With every validated purchase of your PEOPLE® magazine (i.e. with every receipt you upload), you’ll earn a sweeps entry for a chance to win style-inspired prizes including:

  • 1 Grand Prize all-expenses-paid trip for two to New York City!
  • Includes 4-night stay for 2 people and a $1,000 shopping spree!
  • 3 runner-up prizes include: 1st place $300 gift card, 2nd place $250 gift card, and 3rd place $150 gift card

Second, Make a Unicorn Drink:

Magic comes in many forms, and these Unicorn drinks magically put a pep in my step. This is what I like to enjoy with my PEOPLE® magazine in one hand, and drink in the other, hiding in the bathroom from the kids. Take some of these ideas for your inspiration:

Unicorn Hot Chocolate by Love and Olive Oilf

I’ve jumped on the bandwagon of Unicorn everything, so these drinks might inspire you to join me with your drink,  PEOPLE® mag and maybe a donut??

Third, Listen to An Uplifting Podcast:

Sometimes, you can’t go anywhere or carve out much time, but you can put on some headphones while you clean up, wrangle children or wait in the school pickup line. It’s amazing what uplifting words and affirmation can do for you! I know for me, I can listen to a positive, motivating speech on TED talks or Youtube while I’m getting something done, and that alone gives me some rejuvenation.

Here’s The Most Popular TED Talks to get you started.

Hearing the words of my favorite Pasters’ remind me to be grateful and chose Joy gives my spirit the therapy it needs. As a busy mama, our Spirits can get worn down, and often don’t find any sort of attention. This is a great way to do it, and give yourself something you need, when there isn’t an opportunity to leave home or much of a budget!

Make sure you check out the PEOPLE® Rewards Club! You can sign up and get started right away, and let me know if you get an issue this weekend, so we can virtually share a drink and catch up on gossip together!
