#MomSneak. America has spoken: 97% of moms say that they had more time for themselves before motherhood, and now, three-quarters (71%) of moms admit to sneaking in TV “me-time” while juggling a busy schedule, with some even hiding from their kids for just a moment of peace. With moms doing it anywhere and everywhere in the neighborhood when the kids aren’t around, sneaking is the new bingeing.
Luckily, my husband is pretty good about knowing when I need a little alone downtime and let’s me go catch a show or two with no distractions. He’ll usually take our daughter to the pool while I catch a new movie or show on Netflix. These days I have been enjoying GLOW and will watch an episode or two! I’ll grab my favorite snack, which depending on the day and my mood, will range from a bowl of Haggen Dazs ice cream (vanilla all the way) or a bag of salty chips. Hey! It’s important to have a “cheat day” too don’t you think?!
And I’ll grab one of our furry family members to join me! I do find this downtime helps me get back on track and I feel it is so important for us busy ladies to take this time for ourselves. Whether it be going to lunch with a friend or even alone, or night out with the girls, or streaming your favorite show, we need to make sure we are taking some time out for ourselves – in whatever way works best for you!
So smuggle a tablet into the bathroom for a little GLOW during your morning routine, but be forewarned: distracted makeup application may result in a look as bold as one of the gorgeous ladies of the 80s. And if you find yourself overstaying your welcome in the grocery store parking lot watching The Walking Dead, don’t feel guilty. As long as the ice cream doesn’t melt, no one will know your little sneak-ret. Be the life of the party with all the pop culture knowledge you’ll accumulate sneaking—your friends will thank you for talking about something other than the kids. If anyone questions your motives, let them know that according to a recent Netflix survey moms are feeling less stressed and more refreshed and even 19% say it makes them feel like a better parent by sneaking “me-time.” And dads, don’t feel left out. We know you need a break to sneak too.
Spread the word. This month, we invite you to share your sneak stories and selfies by entering a #MomSneak 6-month Netflix subscription giveaway so your sneaking is covered for the rest of 2017.
GIVEAWAY opens up tonight 7/20 at midnight! Good Luck!
