‘Me time’. Self Care. Unwind. Rest & Relaxation. Filling your cup. Whatever we call it, apparently we’re not getting enough of it. According to a study* carried out by British bed manufacturer, Rest Assured, we’re getting an average of 40 minutes a day to ourselves. So, what do we do with that precious time and is it beneficial to our well-being?
You know what it’s like: it’s 2am, the house is in darkness, you’ve already tripped over the perspex coffee table (oh yes, this has happened to me many times, they really are invisible in darkness) on the way to the baby and you’re about to get a shooting, labour-like pain up your leg from the little piece of lego (the devil’s own booby-traps) left in the hallway and this is all before the real fun of a night time nappy change and feed has commenced!!
