24 hours is 1440 minutes. 480 of those minutes should be spent sleeping. I spend another 540 minutes at work, about 90 minutes in a car, and another 60 or so cooking. Then there’s homework, showering, bathroom breaks and more. Even walking the dog hacks away at those 1440 minutes. Some days, I feel thrilled just to find 1 of those minutes for myself. It seems like someone always needs something. Even the dog follows me to the bathroom.
It’s much easier to find a minute to myself on the weekends, but Monday through Friday can prove to be a challenge. One of the things I’ve found works to help me find just 60 seconds to myself is to have my children help me with the evening madness. I have my daughter empty lunchboxes, pack snacks for the next day and my son helps with walking and feeding the dog. I try to use those 5 minutes to use the bathroom in peace and grab myself a snack before the evening madness begins.
