Stolen Moments of Bliss: Joyful Timeouts


One of my favorite things to do is cuddle up under a warm cozy blanket, with a cup of tea and a good book. Many times the duration lasts a mere 10 to 15 minutes. Just enough time to get warm and read a few pages. Those are joyful moments that as a busy Mom I take for myself.

When possible, I really like to set the mood with a glowing fire and soundscapes music playing the background. This drowns out the stress of the day. Taking these few minutes to myself makes me enjoy life more fully.

If you’re looking to have more fun this year, try reading timeouts. They calm you and renew your mind. When my children were babies I preferred magazines to books because sometimes those stolen moments only lasted 2 or 3 minutes before baby was calling!

No matter the amount of time, the point is taking moments here and there fills your soul. Show yourself love by taking joyful timeouts. I think you’ll find the journey a little more fun and serene when you do.

Cheers to sprinkling joy throughout your day!
