In the past I have shared how in 20 minutes I can actually get something done to tidy or clean around my home. Sometimes we need a reminder to use whatever time we do have and use it wisely.
But sometimes, I am just so tired, that in 15 minutes of time, I take a nap! That's right, I recharge my own batteries. Some days I need to take a quick nap sometimes to function for the rest of the day. If needed,
I do this as soon as my youngest is down for her nap, around noon (when the others are at school). By then I have been up for six or seven hours, so it works well for me, especially if I had insomnia or a difficult night with Little Sister the night before.
I'm just keeping it real, folks. None of us can do it all, and I for one, do not work well on empty. (I'm a fairly low-energy person, too.) Fortunately, I am a person who cannot take long naps (unless I am sick or pregnant), so a few minutes in bed is good for me and all of my family benefits.
