Bathroom Secrets – Making Time to Relax as a Busy, Working Mum!

It’s common for my days as a working mum to pass in a complete blur. It’s rare for me to get any downtime at all during the day. Working from home without childcare certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted! Most of my time is spent alternating between entertaining our girls and getting as much work done as is humanly possible.

All work and no play, makes Zoe a very dull girl though. With breaks few and far between it’s too easy to start feeling a little burnt out. As I get zero time in normal hours, my go to place to relax after the kids have gone to bed, is the bathroom! For me, there’s no better way to unwind than sinking into a red-hot bath with a good read for company!

As this is often my favourite part of the day, I like to make it as luxurious as possible. I have my own luxury bathroom cabinets full of goodies, to make my bath-time the perfect spa-like experience!

Time to relax –

Here’s how I turn our bathroom into a relaxing home spa!

  • The first thing I do is rid our bathroom of all of the kids toys, as taking a bath with a plastic pirate ship is far from relaxing! During the day there are toys out all over our house too, so when the littles are in the land of nod it’s nice to sit in a completely toy free space.
  • After looking at a bright laptop screen for most of the day then my smart phone screen in between, the next thing I do is dim the lights in the bathroom. Giving my eyes a rest feels so good, I even add a few candles to make the experience more relaxing.
  • The perfect bath wouldn’t be complete without using my favourite therapeutic bubble bath. I love to use relaxing scents such as jasmine and lavender, they’re so good for helping me to sleep too!
  • After spending some time letting the stresses of the day float away, I like to get myself wrapped up in a fluffy dressing gown and slippers. Bliss!

All of this makes for the ideal end to each day. I find that I need this time to prepare myself for another day of work and parenting combined. We all need a good work-life balance to carry on performing at our best. So if you’re feeling like you need a little downtime, head off for a little home-spa – you deserve it!


How do you like to relax after a long day?
