  • I work from home one day per week. It allows me to have some quiet time alone in the house, and I make sure to schedule little breaks for myself throughout the day.

  • My daughter loves the videos on the sesame street website. We will plop down on the couch with the laptop, and I open one browser window for her on one side of the screen and one for me on the other. She can watch the videos, I can check email or just surf the internet, and we get some cuddle time together.

  • My favorite way to destress is to inhale, exhale and remember that I need time for me. You need to take care of YOU! No one else will.

  • Personally, I light a scented candles, take bubble baths, then shower off and listen to guided meditation. As my regular work out I do whatever the children do at the playground.

  • I'm a working mom and need for my family to stay healthy during the flu season so I don't have to take time off of work. Got my boy these arm bands to remind him to cough into his arm. He loves the flames and thinks he looks "cool"! Hope this helps. Stay healthy! www.mysneezee.com

  • I love to save money whenever I can. I'm kind of like a shopaholic, but I'm a saveaholic. Don't get me wrong, I love to shop, but it's the saving part that gets me excited.
