Even as a mother of three I know the importance of this. I set aside two hours in a day just for me. First hour is 9:00 to 10:00 I exercise, then my second hour is in the evening at about 8:00 I take a nice long hot bubble bath with a good entertaining book and a hot cup of coffee. All of this costs me nothing, but it allows me to unwind and be healthy so that I have the strength to take care of my family and tend to my business.
You must first take care of yourself so that next you can tend to your family. Work should NEVER take priority over you family. If it is maybe its time to rethink your priorities. Children grow up so fast, and need their parents attention.
If both parents are alive then they are both needed. My husband works a full time job and then comes home for dinner with the family, and stays until the boys either get in their bath or go to bed, before he goes down to the shop to work. This gives him time to unwind from work and spend time with the boys.
Other ways to relax and spend time with the family can be going for a bike ride or walk on the trail, camping, game night, etc.
So take care of yourself and then take care of your family. When you get those two things to the top of your priority list and master them, then everything else will fall into place. Then an only then can you be successful.
How do you unwind, and relax? How do you create success?
