'Me Time'

Being a Mother of two young children (an almost 3 year old and a 5 month old), 'me time' is pretty hard to come by. I usually only get proper time to myself at night time when the babies are in bed, and even then I have a husband to entertain, lol. When I do get some time to myself, there's a few things I enjoy doing to relax and de-stress (after blogging of course), so I thought I'd share them.

Lighting some candles - Nothing more relaxing than having a nice smelling house. I love a good Yankee Candle, and have one burning most nights (it's also my Martin's pleasure, think he loves a candle more than I do). We've used plenty of the jars and have a couple going at the minute, but our faves are the wax tarts as it's a great way of trying lots of different scents.

Reading a book - Gotta be honest, this is one I need to try and do more often, as I do find it so relaxing and I've been loving Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes so I really wanna get stuck into it.

Doing a puzzle - Yes, I know it sounds really geeky but I recently discovered this Logic Problems magazine and I absolutely cannot get enough of the puzzles. It takes my mind off all other stresses in my life and it's great brain training too!

Adult Colouring - This is also a recent discovery. I'd seen this cropping up all over instagram and read it was great for stress relieving so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm still on the first page but when I get time I love getting stuck in and seeing what I come up with. It's so therapeutic.

What do you do to de-stress and relax?
