never under-mind the importance of self clarity whether you're a mother or not we are all human and need a little time out.
replace lights with candles and take all phones and ipods, laptops or anything that makes noise out of the bathroom you can't relax 100% if you have a distraction in the room, giving yourself that 30 minutes - 2 hours of complete silence is essential for keeping a healthy attitude. Especially if you're like me who is fighting a cold and in agony! People forget to tell you about the "no days off" section in the motherhood book...
add a little lavender to the bath and your body will sing a big thank you.
If all else fails share the moment.
