It’s quite easy to forget to take a step back from our day-to-day lives; there aren’t enough hours in the day when you’re working hard and trying to raise a family as well as eating and keeping yourself looked after. If we’re being honest with each other - if we could, we would take a break just for one afternoon - we just need to plan in advance.

Organise a day, ideally when your children are at school or at a sleepover with their friends. Secondly, pick a time when you’re least busy with work; if you’re busy all the time, then pick a midweek evening where you can catch up with the work the following days.

Decide what you can afford. In reality, you’re going to have to spend a bit of money, but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you can find the time in your day to treat yourself, you can find the time to spend a little bit of money; after all, it’s a present for yourself.
