How to Find “Me Time” This Summer

A psychologist shares some tips on how parents can fit in some "me time" this summer.

Finding “me time” can be a struggle as a parent.  There are some tips on how you can fit it in this summer.  Psychologist Susan Albers with the Cleveland Clinic says “me time” for parents is a necessity in order to not feel overwhelmed and stressed.  To find time for yourself, she recommends making a list of things getting in the way and coming up with possible solutions.   Some of them may include reducing the amount of time you spend on social media or waking up earlier.   She adds “me time” doesn’t necessarily mean being away from your child.   Help them find their own activities to enjoy.  For example, a child colors while mom watches a show she’s been wanting to see.
