Gretchen Rubin introduced a fab idea on her podcast this week: Me-time Tuesday. One day a week, you designate a night for you—no childcare, no work, no responsibilities. I live by my calendar, so having scheduled 'me-time' means it actually happens.
What would you do? My list is endless: gymnastics class, massages, drinks with girlfriends or wandering around a new neighborhood.
Some ideas on how to make this happen: pick different days from your partner or switch-off every other week. If your partner can't relieve you, hire a standing sitter.
