Rewarding Yourself #HealthyFamilies

by MARIA on August 29, 2012

As the stay-at-home mom/laundress/cleaning lady/cook of the house, (yes, I am looking for a sister wife), I don’t really get a day off. There is always something to do around the house.

Especially this time of year, with the spring cleaning and getting ready for back to school, it’s non-stop.

However, the best thing about working hard and getting things done is the reward.

I have certain things that make little old me happy and relaxed.

Magazines: I’m a bit of a magazine addict – I like them a lot, they can be found in every room of the house, and I can’t get enough of them.

Books: Books are another addiction that I enjoy in my downtime, although we’ve officially run out of space if I’m totally honest. Although I do like to make the bookshelves pretty, but I’ve moved to reading more e-books lately and I really enjoy reading on my iPad.


The only time I get to watch television is late at night when the kiddies are asleep. I put on the flannel pjs, lie on the couch and watch a great documentary or a tv series.. I actually just watched the first five seasons of Mad Men – so so good.

Of course, these all get better when I add a touch of caffeine.

What do you do to reward yourself??

I love reading books too, but the problem is I work reading all day and when I get the time to relax the last thing I want is to read some more. :(

I treat myself to two magazines a month. It’s just enough for me to actually read them (yes it takes a month) and it makes me feel like I’ve somewhat educated myself within 30 days.

I fully endorse magazines – as you may tell.
