Nanny’s Day Off

We believe that an extraordinary nanny is one that is professional, positive, ready for the day, and takes pride in nurturing and inspiring the children in her care. As a nanny, you put in a lot of work and energy into being the best nanny you can be, which is precisely why every great nanny values her time off.

For many working nannies, a day off is a time to catch up on personal chores, but it should also be a time of renewal and rest. Here are some of the things our nannies enjoy doing on their time off:

  • Catch up on sleep – Science says you can’t really ‘catch  up’ on lost sleep, but sleeping a few more hours on your day off is just one of life’s simple pleasures. Enjoy it!
  • Get some fresh air – If you’ve been cooped up at home with the children, or you have just not had a chance to get outside, your day off is the perfect day to get out there. A city walk or a hike in the woods. Pop some music in and clear your mind!
  • Listen to your favourite music – Speaking of music, whether you enjoy calming tunes or upbeat songs, music can greatly enhance your mood and help recharge your spirits.
  • Catch up on your reading – Whether it’s books or magazines, reading a great way to escape your daily routine. Dive into reading!
  • Touch base with your friends and family – Because our busy work schedules often keep us from connecting with the people that matter to us on a regular basis, taking the time to touch base with our loved ones when we have a bit more time to chat is time well spent.
  • Stock up on nutritious food and snacks – Loading up on fruits & veggies, and drinking plenty of water will revitilize you from the inside out. This is also a great time to think of the food and treats you will need during your work days. A hungry nanny is the worst!
