16 Self-Care Activities Parents Can Squeeze In During Those In-Between Moments

Retail therapy, a glass of wine, screaming the lyrics to your favorite songs in the car — every parent needs that little self-care pick-me-up.

1. Take a load off with some tub time, a podcast, and wine when the kids finally settle down in the evening.

2. Listen to a guided meditation before bed.

3. Do a clean sweep of your socials to block out the haters.

4. Walk the aisles of your favorite home goods store in between soccer practice and cello lesson pickups.

5. Get a little retail therapy and fill an online shopping cart while waiting for after-school pickup.

6. Get some fancy fine-tip markers and an adult coloring book.

7. Take a specialized fitness class if you're looking for a sweaty self-care option.

8. Or curate your own hype jam mix to sing along to in between shuttling the fam around in the van.

9. Sign up for a monthly subscription box delivery.

10. Save a bunch of single-serve dessert recipes for when you'll need it most.

11. Brew a custom tea for the week based on your mood.

12. Find a handicraft you enjoy and can pick up and put down at a moment's notice.

13. Make nights out without kids an actual priority.

14. Seek out new social circles every once in a while.
