Actress Kate Winslet finds it hard to make time for herself without feeling guilty and says that she has forgotten how to sit.

'Any mother knows the last person you think about is yourself. I've been a mother for 10 years and I'm still trying to figure out how to give time to myself without feeling guilty about it. Sometimes I'll sit down and I'll go, 'Oh it's just nice to sit down,' because truly, I've forgotten how to do that,' Winslet told Hello magazine.

She added: 'You forget to sit down and not worry about what needs to be done for the kids, just take time for yourself and pick up a book or read a recipe. I tell myself 'Just Sit Down' it's a challenge.'

Winslet has 10-year-old daughter Mia with first husband Jim Threapleton, and seven-year-old son Joe with second spouse Sam Mendes.

The 35-year-old enjoyed her 30s and prepared for the challenges of life than she did in her 20s, reports

'I think that for a lot of women, our 20s are a time of really figuring things out and figuring out what we're really about. Of course, at the time, we think we know exactly who we are, we think we've done all the growing emotionally. And then along come our 30s and it's all different again. I'm really enjoying my 30s, actually. I have so much more life experience than I did when I was 25 and that's a real luxury,' she said.
