Making the most of your child's nap

It's really easy to let a home, long nap time slip away while you're just clicking away at the computer, and not really getting anything done. So I recommend that moms use a nap time to recharge themselves. And there are sort of three aspects of this. One is to do something creative, something that really inspires you, and gets to your brain in a different way of thinking besides just your daily chores or childcare tasks. The second is to connect with someone else; either, call a girlfriend, call your mom, and just get that charge of human connection that's so good for us. Then, the third is do something physical. So whether you do a workout video in your living room, or use your nap time to push the baby on a stroller walk. Do one of these things. Make your break count, and you'll feel recharged.
