It’s a struggle to get enough me time every day isn’t it? Being a parent is a tough job.
There’s always something that needs done and it may seem like you are always juggling many tasks at once. Even if you’re not a parent, you likely have many other responsibilities that take up your day.
You have work. Maybe even school. A house to care for. Friends or family who need your attention.
If your to-do list is always full, you’re in good company. We all seem to be busier than ever before. We’re on the go so much that many people simply don’t get the time to themselves that they need each day and it can greatly increase the stress in your life.
