For me one of the hardest parts of being a working mom is traveling. Just to be gone a day or two can overwhelm my entire week. I spend time preparing as much as possible before and then the entire weekend catching up once I am home.
To make this crazy week a little easier I make sure to carve out some quality “ME” time while I am away! Turn off all the technology and try to relax. I find some of the below activities help me recharge even if I only find 1 hour!
-an extra glass of wine at dinner
-a short nap
-take a walk
So next time you are planning your work trip make sure to plan for that all important “ME” time!
Let me know what your ideal get away for 1 hour would be!
