How Do You Balance Motherhood? Share Your Formula Sweepstakes & Giveaway

This information and giveaway have been provided to me by Store Brand Formula. All thoughts and opinions are my own. #ShareYourFormula

How do you balance Motherhood? Being a mom has been so rewarding but it doesn’t mean it is always rainbows and sunshine. It is a challenge but so worth it. Sometimes I need to remember that I need to give myself some “me” time to recharge. I know when I need some alone time when I get easily irritable or find myself getting frustrated – it happens. We have to find that balance between “mom time” and “me time” both are important.

What do I do to enjoy my “Me” time?

Relaxing bath

A bath makes such a big difference in my mood. The warm water just soothes everything away. I like to add some bath bombs and light some candles. Aromatherapy really does work!

Reading a good book

A good book can take you away to another place. Reading can be really relaxing for me. I have tons of books loaded in my Kindle e-reader. If I’m in the mood for inspirational, fiction, non-fiction, or blogging book I can easily switch to it

Good Coffee/tea

Coffee is my thing. I drink a cup at least one time a day. There is nothing like the smell of fresh brewed coffee. I also enjoy some tea with honey when I want to soothe my throat.


I’m not usually a sweets person but I love donuts (or doughnuts). We have a few gourmet donuts places here in South Florida that I stop by when I am nearby. Anyone else a donuts fan?

Parenting is definitely a learning experience. Both of my children are so different – what works for one doesn’t necessarily worth for the other. Store Brand Formula gets that when it comes to formula options for babies. Store Brand Formula is nutritionally comparable to nationally advertised brands, but costs up to 50% less. It’s called formula for a reason.
