What do you do for yourself to relax and un-wind?

Do you get very much "me time" for yourself?

If you had more time to yourself, what would you do with it?

My "me time" consists of the moments I can jump online LOL.

Rare occasions I get to go chat with my neighbor, who is one of my best friends, for a few minutes or I get to take my youngest and go with another good friend and do lunch(technically not real me time since I have my youngest as does she but still its out of the house).

If I had more "me time" Id probably work on my meditation and candle making and go for a decent walk to get in some exercise and quiet time LOL.

Me time usually is a quick drop in to Star$ on my way home from running endless errands.

What do you do for yourself to relax and un-wind? ~ I play a couple hands of solitaire on my iPod right before I go to sleep each night. It's mindless and relaxing.

Do you get very much "me time" for yourself? ~No, rarely. My husband works from home and I homeschool my 8 year old. I hardly ever have time to myself. I usually cannot even go to the bathroom without someone talking to me through the door.

If you had more time to yourself, what would you do with it? ~ I would probably go see a movie that wasn't rated G or PG... or sit at a bookstore with a cup of coffee. It's a pipe dream really...

This is my "me time"...Lol. Sometimes I'll talk on the phone.

If I had more time....I'd exercise and sleep.

I dont really get any. I take nap time to do whatever I want. If I was out at work I would get a lunch break, so think I should too! Its a very long day!
And I have some time when the kids go to bed, but I dont really get to do anything outside the house. I dont like being by myself and I dont have any real friends.

I don't really get any "me" time. I barely get any time to myself in the evenings after Harvey has gone to bed because he gets out of his bed at least 20 times every single time, so I can't really relax and do what I want. The time I do get is nice but rare, and I usually spend it taking a shower, reading or jumping online.

What do you do for yourself to relax and un-wind?
Watch TV, work out, do crafts, write, listen to music.

Do you get very much "me time" for yourself?
I'm a single mom, so really the only "me time" I have is work and at the gym, lol.

If you had more time to yourself, what would you do with it?
I honestly don't know. Clean maybe? Sleep? Watch TV? I don't mind 90% of my time going to my kids, I'm very family oriented.

My "me time" is once the kids are in bed...I do other things as well like clean and stuff the first hour or so they are in bed but after that its alllll about me, lol well and dh once he is home haha but other than that not a whole lot of me time. I work all morning late into the late afternoon and then dh is off to work and I do the kids/house thing so pretty much only once they are in bed at nights and when dh is off on weekends if i am not working one of my jobs i use that time for myself or as family time.

As for what do I do during my free time..I like to read, go online, hang with friends, go see movies, shopping, lunch/drinks...whatever I feel like doing at that time

I love to take baths when I can, just to relax and have some quiet time to myself, but it doesnt usually happen very often and when it does, it is usually interupted by kids banging on the door asking for things, or my little one crying.
Do you get very much "me time" for yourself? Lately, I am lucky if I get to sit down and eat a meal. I feel like I am running and running yet never getting anything done.

If you had more time to yourself, what would you do with it?
Sleep.

I had to look up the me defination of 'me time' I totally escaped my mind

No but seriously, theres not alot of me time currently. When I do manage to get it, its between the hours of 4am-6am before anyone wakes up. I try to catch up online and talk to people over seas because its early evening their time.

Any other me time thats somehow sqeezed in would be relaxing maybe, just maybe getting a massage.

I don't get it too often, so I've been hanging around my parents on Friday, they play with the kids and get to relax or go out for a few hrs with my sisters.
