7 Habits of Happy Women

Happy women find "me time" regularly, no matter what

It doesn´t have to be a whole lot of time, especially if you have young kids. It can be 10 minutes for a coffee alone before the family wakes up, 15 minutes taking a bubble bath, five minutes lying on your bed with cucumber slices over your eyes. The point is carving out small pockets of time where it's all about you and your thoughts and feelings. It usually takes some effort to create these moments, but if you do it regularly, you won't find yourself running on empty all the time.
