When I was growing up, staying home from school for a sick day often felt like a little treat. I was lucky enough to have a mom who stayed at home and doted on me, making me a special bed on the couch where I could enjoy comforting food and drinks while watching those fun game shows that were only on TV during the day. As I’ve grown older, sick days can feel like less of a treat because there is always so much to get done.
The holiday season is so packed with gatherings, events, and a never-ending to-do list that it can be hard to find a few minutes to yourself. No matter how busy your days may seem this time of year, there are always little pockets of time you can steal for yourself, even if it’s only 10 minutes here and there. Here are some ways you can enjoy that time.
