3. Intention: Me-time is the key to starting your day off right. The promise of a new day begins with the sunrise. Set your alarm; get up before everyone else and stretch. Grab a cup of coffee and sit on your porch; enjoy the sounds of morning as you clear your mind. This will help you set the pace for the day and decide that the day is going to be great. When you intend for the day to be great, then it certainly will be.

4. Gratitude: We all have things to be thankful for, but when we feel constantly rushed from one thing to the next, it's hard to see how we are truly blessed. Taking some time for yourself will allow you to see what you have and be able to express gratitude for it.

5. Peace: As mothers, we feel the need to give and give of ourselves until there is nothing left, but when you spend just 15 minutes alone with yourself, you gain an inner peace that allows you to give back without feeling resentful. Giving is a major part of being a mom, and it takes great peace to do that successfully every single day.

6. A Plan: If you allow yourself some me-time, you can plan ahead for the day. If you know your daughter has soccer practice, you can create a plan to get her to that practice without feeling like you're juggling too much at one time. Planning ahead is the key to getting everything done.
