While I was doing my weekly shopping at Jewel-Osco, I decided to pick up the new InStyle while I was checking out. Sunday’s are meant for some ‘me‘ time and what’s a better way to relax while reading your favorite fashion magazine?!

As a wife, and working mom of soon-to-be 2 boys I cannot stress enough how important it is to find some ‘me‘ time. Most of us know that self-care is essential for happiness. But do we actually take the time to do so? I must admit that I seldom do—but being 9 months pregnant I truly understand the importance of resting now. I get so very tired throughout the day that I simply cannot help but take breaks. And this is what I do now…Every Sunday I carve 2 hrs of ‘me‘ time. We went to Jewel-Osco for some grocery shopping last Sunday, and while we were waiting at the check-out line I noticed the new InStyle issue. Reading one of my favorite fashion magazines while drinking caffeine-free coffee helps me relax tremendously. It’s very much soothing to my body and soul.
And yet we often feel that taking time out for ourselves is selfish. We have been taught that we must work hard to deserve health and happiness. I mean I even put a lot of pressure on myself. I want to be the perfect wife, mother and entrepreneur…but let’s face it: Nobody is perfect, and there’s nothing wrong with the idea to award yourself with some ‘me‘ time every once in a while, in fact, it’s good for you! Whether it’s the latest InStyle, PEOPLE®, Stylewatch® or RealSimple® magazine, go grab yourself a copy at your nearest Jewel-Osco and award yourself! Be inspired, drink your favorite drink or eat your favorite snack, and simply relax! While it may be tempting to spend your free time running errands or catching up on work, commit to spending the time to pamper yourself. You don’t have to spend a lot of time, but it has to be for yourself.
You can visit your local participating Safeway, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Tom Thumb, Randall’s, Shaw’s, Star Market, Carr’s or Acme Market to receive $1 J4U/MyMixx offer on PEOPLE, Instyle, StyleWatch, and Real Simple.
What are you waiting for? Head on over to your local store and grab yourself a copy! You deserve it!
Remember: When you treat yourself well, it will trickle down to everything else in life! Whether it is going to a park to read your favorite magazine or book for a half hour, etc.—it’ll be worth it and it’s a crucial part of living a full life. Carving out time for yourself is vital for keeping yourself healthy, and that means a happier family and more productive work and/or school life.
