Go To A Spa

One of the most relaxing things that you can do when you get some time away from your kids is to go to a spa. You can spend some time in the hot tub, get a massage or simply have some time to think about what is going on. If you don’t want to go alone, bring your partner to the spa with you and you can both enjoy some time together without your kids there.

Go Kayaking​

Another great idea for mums who want to spend some time by themselves is to take up kayaking. Kayaking can get you outdoors and it is a very low impact exercise. You might not even have to go far to try out kayaking as you can do it on most lakes or rivers. You will love being able to relax on the water and taking in the sights that nature has for you. If this sounds like a sport that you’d love to try out, visit for more information on the types of kayaks that would be best for you.


Have your kids gone to school or a sports club and you have some extra time? Why not spend the day baking some nice treats for when they come home. Baking can actually be a fun experience as you can teach yourself a new skill or let your creativity flow. Make sure to try out baking if you are stuck for ideas on how to spend your day.

Go For A Drive

If you can drive, you should try to get out and explore your local area. A lot of people enjoy going for long drives as it gives them time to clear their head and spend some time alone. You might even start to discover some new places if you go out driving somewhere that you’ve never been before.

Go Shopping

Many mums spend all their money on their kids as they need to make sure that they have everything that they need. This is why you should take some time to spend some money on yourself and buy yourself something new. Shopping can actually be good for you as it makes you relax and think about yourself. Even if you don’t end up treating yourself you might still enjoy yourself.

Make sure to find activities to do when you have time away from your kids. Don’t fall into the trap of spending all of your time alone doing things for them or cleaning the house. You need some time to work on yourself so enjoy it!
