Okay, the kids are asleep and so is the husband. The lunches are yet to be made and I’m so exhausted. Is it wrong to sit on the couch with my iPad in hand and let time pass while there is so much to do? I feel guilty and am trying to find motivation to turn off the TV and switch off the internet. Perhaps I should just read a book to escape to a far away land.

  • A women’s work is never done so why worry.


  • Cut yourself some slack, we all need down time.


  • We shouldn’t feel guilty for taking a break. We work hard enough and we deserve it! :-)


  • Please take a break when you need to rest. You need to look after you as well!


  • enjoy your break! don’t feel guilty!


  • I find a time with a book helps re-energise me.


  • Enjoy a little ‘me’ time however you can!


  • Sometimes it is ok to be a couch potato! I find I keep my motivation by breaking tasks down into achievable blocks of 15-20 minutes. Tasks then get ticked off the list pretty quickly and then I have time to pursue other interests and hobbies.


  • You have to have time to yourself sometimes. Try not to feel guily
