Take a Coffee Break

Amy Murphy, a busy mom and editor in New York City, coordinates her "me time" with her son Toby's naps. "On weekends, I walk to my favorite local coffee shop, buy a scone, and read the paper while Toby's asleep in his stroller by my side," she says. "I suppose I could do that at home, but when I'm there I can't help but fold laundry, write checks, wash dishes, or do anything else that needs doing."
