In this unique season of family , we have the opportunity to be intentional about our self-care, our relationships, and even taking care of the home we live in.

Sometimes we need a little vision, though. A plan. Some ideas that get us heading in the right direction.

If you missed my introduction to “Today’s Opportunity Plan,” you can find it here.

Here are your day 31 opportunities:

✝️Your soul:
Read the first chapter in Philippians today. Underline or write down any verse you can specifically apply to your life.

Intentionally schedule “me time” on your calendar for the rest of 2020, then if you have children, work on a childcare option that will work for you. Think of trading “me time” with another mom, or having a “dad’s in charge” time once a week, or utilizing family members (once Covid-19 is over) on a regular schedule.

Give each other foot massages (or back massages if you don’t touch feet!) and share your high and low for the day.

Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.

Kids: If you built a “reading tent” yesterday and it’s still up, turn it into a playhouse today. Encourage them to turn it into their “house” with their stuffed animals being the people in the house.

Teens: Give your teen a heads up that you’ll probably need to start mowing the yard soon. If you haven’t already, put them in charge of that task. Make sure they get a good training on mowing safety and how to mow.

20 push ups today. (Yes, on your knees counts!)

Send your pastor(s) a note in the mail today letting them know how much you appreciate them.

Wash all your throw blankets in the house today. They’ve probably been getting used more than usual with everyone home!

Clean out your purse and your wallet today!

You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
