I’ve read several articles over the years about how to manage being a working Mum and they typically give the same advice each time: that you should “put yourself first” and “prioritise having ‘me time'”.  I absolutely agree that we should do this, but without following these comments up with practical advice on how to do it, these articles left me feeling frustrated.  I knew what I should do, I just didn’t know how to.  This section will give you the best practical solutions that I’ve tried and tested over time.
