Throughout the day or week, make a list of things you would like to do if you get a chance. This list will be seperate from household chores or children’s schedules. This list is just for you. The list will be a tangeable reminder that alone time does happen, no matter how limited.
As you are assembling your list, think of your priorities. Would you rather watch television, cruise the internet, make a phone call, drink a cup of coffee in the quiet? Could you accomplish more than one task at once? Would you want to?
Have your list handy at all times so that you can remember to jot an idea down or you suddenly find yourself with some alone time. If your children no longer nap, it would be a good idea to write down a few things you can do for yourself in five minutes or so. That way if you can get your children to play by themselves for a little while, you can quickly have a bit of alone time to enjoy.
Whip your list out and enjoy your alone time!
