5 minutes? 5 minutes. 5 MINUTES!

I had someone call me the other day. She was complaining about her skin and her "adult acne". Asking me, (*PLEASE Note: I am NOT a dermatologist, or medical doctor. These remedies have worked for my skin. I am in no way giving medical advise.) what I used on my skin.

You see she is a fellow farmHer, with kids, husband, off the farm job, and farm chores to do after work. I can relate, as I bet we all can. I started telling her that I wash my face in the morning with my goat milk soap, then apply my Vivid Eye Cream. Before leaving the bathroom in the morning, I apply a thin layer of my goat milk lotion to my face. 5 minutes, tops. At night, a pretty similar regime but using the Night Milk on my face. Again, 5 minutes.

She told me she doesn't have 5 minutes. Whatever she does has to be in the shower. "I don't understand, you don't have 5 minutes to wash your face, twice a day?" The answer was a resounding "NO".

Which prompted this blog. How many of us have so many "irons in the fire" that we don't have 5 minutes? I know there are lots of days I feel this way, and I am sure you do too. So my question is this...How can we not take 5 minutes for ourselves? I'm not saying take away from your kids, husbands or obligations, but really I NEED that 5 minutes.

If you have read this far, I hope you have, you have taken the first step to your 5 minutes. I hope you remember this and it sticks with you like it has for me. Now back to chaos....hahaha.
