Being a parent means we are constantly busy doing something; I literally never say or think "I'm bored!" and I always have something lined up if my kids decide to nag me. There is always something to do, somewhere to be, someone to deal with. There are so many things on my list daily; Raising three kids that are passed the baby stage, taking care of pets, running a household, cleaning, laundry, cooking, and my blogging plus other writing when I can slip in the time. Life doesn't seem to have a pause button. 

It's busy and it is so easy to become too busy with only so many hours in a day, this can result in forgetting to slow it down and think of number one. It is okay to take a moment for ourselves; we need to remind ourselves we (moms/dads) are as important as the kids. If we aren't happy, how can we make them happy? I have to remind myself that sometimes, the laundry piles can wait. They won't go anywhere.

How do I find the time to take care of me? I try to carve it out when I can; simple. Yes, having an adults only day or evening is wonderful but my moments are surely happy ones when I can finally take even an hour or so to do something small for me; drink an entire coffee while it's still hot, paint my nails, have that hidden snack or my favourite, take a hot shower after a long day, on my own, all alone without any little ones trying to sneak into the bathroom and "see what I'm doing". 

Taking a shower alone may not feel like a big thing to some people but in my life, it's the simple things that give me the Intuition Effect; simplify my life and make me happier.

Moments I can to take care of myself and feel "human" again. It's the small things like having the time to thoroughly wash my hair with my favorite shampoo that I keep hidden from the kids or shave my legs with my Schick Intuition razor. It's the simple things that give me the Intuition Effect.

Speaking of Schick Intuition have you tried the new Schick Intuition? It's literally one of my favorite on-the-go razors. It has a four-blade pivoting head surrounded by a moisturizing shave bar; no shaving cream required.  The sleek handle gives it grip; no nicks or cuts. 

Being a #SchickAmbassador has its perks; I really like this razor for a simple choice for the simple moments.
