As a work at home mama , I do need to use afternoon quiet time to my advantage but I also make it priority to refuel myself by taking a few minutes of "me time" to recharge.
Once I get my boys set up with their afternoon snacks and quiet time activities, I have a simple afternoon ritual that I like to call "Recharge Time".
I love the warmth and comfort of hot beverage, so I always have an afternoon cup of tea. This is just one way that I recharge my mama batteries. Before the kids are even settled down for their quiet time, I start by filling my tea kettle and placing it on the stove to start boiling the water, that way it's ready to go when I'm ready.
I also practice Hygee, which is all about enjoying the simple things in life, savoring each experience, and being with the ones you love. It's about creating a sense of home and safety where we can let our guard down. I love sipping my tea with a cozy blanket while listening to the boys interact with one another and grow their relationship.
Sometimes I will grab a book or magazine and incorporate that into my cozy afternoon recharge time as well. Reading every day can slow the progress of Alzheimer’s and dementia and reduce stress by transporting you to a different place. It helps improve memory, focus, and concentration. Be sure to gt your nose in a book for about 15 minutes a day.
