My husband does not approve of me spending time away from the family. How can I discover what makes me happy?

All work and no play makes Jack and Jill a dull couple. Variety is the spice of life. Enough with the clichés you say, but there is a lot of truth to these statements. The most common refrain you hear about life in the good old USA, is that it is very “mechanical.” When we spend our lives working, commuting, grocery shopping, doing chores, and driving kids around it can feel as if the days blend together and happiness is a distant memory. Right?

WRONG. Take back your life and own your happiness. Start small. Talk to your husband and decide that each of you gets one day in the month (preferably a weekend day) as your own “me” day. The spouse takes care of everything and you get to do whatever your heart desires. Agree on a budget for your “me” day ahead of time. Now you have a whole day to yourself and a budget to blow! You may choose to go for a massage, spend time with your girlfriends or just kick back with a good book. This mini vacation rejuvenates your spirit and you stop feeling like everyone’s slave – the boss, kids, spouse and even your assistant in the office! Enjoy!
