tomorrow, day 1, a month of me time!

We are well and truly into the swing of 2010. Christmas and the extended summer holidays seem such along time ago now. School has started, I'm mum to primary school aged children, for goodness sake! It's now time to invest time into ME! For the past 7 years the majority of my life has focused on my adorable family, I now have approximately 30 hours a week for ME! Some of the time I'll use domestically, some of the time I'll work, some of the time I'll study, some of the time I'll socialise and some of the time I'll use simply for myself, writing, reading, relaxing, simply enjoying time out and my own company.

Now, I tend to get a little carried away at times surfing the net, losing myself in endless snippets of information, news, blogs, the list goes on and on. Today I found a site at the most perfect time and stage of my life. The timing couldn't have been more spot on! I found "The Calm Space".

"The Calm Space is an online magazine that is like a virtual day-spa for your senses… decadent, informative, relaxing. A real no-mobile-phones-allowed kind of escape where you can chill for a minute or an hour and emerge refreshed and ready to face anything your day throws at you!

It’s a rare woman who doesn’t succumb to chaos and madness at some stage during her busy week. Whatever your particular life situation, and no matter how your day is going, you will find respite within "the calm space".

"The Calm Space" is not just about chilling out! It also focuses on taking action, moving out of stress and chaos, and moving towards a happier, calmer life."

The blurb above instantly captured my attention, I was hooked immediately! Wanting to read more and more.

How divine that I should find "the calm space", talk about excellent timing! Now is the time for ME, time to indulge myself!

I'm excitedly anticipating "A Month of Me Time", a free e-course which is aimed at inspiring ME to take better care of MYSELF! Each day for the next 30 days I shall receive an email on the importance of taking a little time for MYSELF! I'll receive simple daily actions to nourish MY soul.

I can't wait to be inspired to take better care of MYSELF! If I'm honest with myself, myself has been slightly neglected, this is not good for any member of our family, least of all myself.

Little steps commence tomorrow. No more running on empty! Now is the time for ME! Tomorrow is day 1, the beginning. I'm certain I was meant to find the calm space today.

I'll share my simple daily actions with you. You may even feel inspired to join yourself!


  1. What a fabulous idea - I'm very jealous of all of your free time. Can't wait to hear about your daily actions - enjoy!

  2. sound good - might just pop over and have alook myself!! Looking forward to seeing what you post over the following days - we all need some 'me time'

  3. How good does that sound? Thanks for sharing it. I will have to have a look too.

  4. It's so important to look after yourself, especially after you've been looking after everybody else for so long. Goon on YOU! Looking forward to reading about it. Anna xx

  5. Did you read my Housewife blog post a few days back - totally about this, looking after yourself like you have never done before as you have 30 hours child free a week, eat well, exercise & do all the cleaning & cooking with them when they are around, so you are so happy with your peaceful days. I have 4 in primary school, this is my second year of such a lifestyle, i love 3p.m. as i've had such a lovely day with myself. Love Posie

  6. Yay! Thank you so much for your very kind words about The Calm Space, you really brightened my day! I'm thrilled you've found us, and hope you'll pop by whenever you're in need of a little calm.

    I will look forward to hearing about your experience after taking simple daily actions to nourish your soul for 30 days!

    warmest wishes
