Being a Mom is a 24/7 job and (even though we should) we often don’t take time for ourselves, to enjoy the things that spark our inner passions and creativity. There don’t seem to be enough hours in the day for self-care or me time. For all of you mamas who are feeling like this, I’ve got one piece of advice for you…

Schedule time for yourself.

Actually put it on the calendar… block it off and don’t let anything supercede it!

I know, I know… you’re going to say it’s impossible. It can’t be done.

But I’m here to tell you that it IS possible, even if it’s only for 15 minutes!

And, just like you’re more apt to work out when you’re paying a trainer for their time, I’m a firm believer that you need to invest in yourself in order to take self-care seriously.

So, I’ve got the perfect thing for all of you – Sweet Reads!

What is Sweet Reads?

Sweet Reads is a Canadian subscription service that sends a box full of goodies right to your door each month. I love the fact that each one is thoughtfully curated. In addition to the monthly novel (chosen from a top bestseller list), each box includes a drink, a sweet treat and a fun accessory or two, with each item being connected to the book in some way. And, every product is high quality…no dollar store items here!

Here’s what was in the January box…

What’s great about a subscription service is that you don’t have to think about it; a box arrives every month – just for you! It’s the perfect reason to carve 15 minutes out of every day for yourself. You can settle in with a cup of tea, a sweet treat and your book.

Even if you’re in the bathroom. With the door locked.

Visit the Sweet Reads website to order box for yourself, or a friend (they make fabulous gifts!). February is already sold out, so be sure to place your order in time for the March box! (Remember, you don’t have to worry about pesky exchange rates because Sweet Reads is all-Canadian!!)
