Better Places - The Lido - Bristol

Before becoming a parent I never really felt the need for 'me time' as I do now. I used to love an hour in the bath reading a good book or binge on my favourite box set but I took things like grabbing a cup of coffee for granted and never really craved it as a thing to do by myself.

Everyone can tell you that becoming a parent is life changing and at times overwhelming. For a long while I felt like I just didn't have anything left of myself to give to anyone other than this new person in myself and that included giving time to myself. I feel lucky enough now a few years down the line of parenthood to be getting the balance a little better (for me) and one of my favourite parts of the week is taking my laptop to a different location to work from on childcare days.

Oftentimes the first half an hour of these days will be spent with my laptop closed, coffee in hand and just letting myself be and think and clear my mind.

On of my favourite places to do this is The Lido in Bristol.


I've never actually taken the plunge (literally) into the beautiful water you see in front of you. I do love to watch the swimmers though, who are certainly far braver than me in this cold weather.

I think it's so important as a parent to be able to recharge and give yourself a little break now and then. It certainly refreshes me mentally and helps me parent a little better when I give myself over to my family once more.

Do you have a place that helps you recharge and feel better?
