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.
Here are your day 33 opportunities:
Read the third chapter in Philippians today. Underline or write down any verse you can specifically apply to your life.
Make your bed today. I know that may sound odd for “self care” but it really does feel like you’ve pampered yourself–especially if you’re not in the habit of making your bed.
Go to bed together tonight–30 minutes earlier than usual–and read a chapter in a marriage book together (alternate reading paragraphs or pages). Don’t have a marriage book on your bookshelf? You can read the first chapter of No More Perfect Marriages here.
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Babies: Hide a squeaky toy behind your back, under a blanket, or behind a cushion. Let your baby try to look for it. You can even move the toy to another part of the room and encourage your little one to crawl or walk to the sound. This little game is great for cognitive development in babies. It also develops auditory skills.
Kids: Pull out craft items. Give the kids some printer paper and some glue sticks. Encourage them to make a creative picture for their grandparents or an older neighbor. Pop the picture in the mail or deliver it to their porch.
Teens: Time to get started on a puzzle!
Stairs–up and down any set of steps 20 times today (4 sets of 5).
Who has influenced your faith journey? Send a text, note, or message today letting that person know how much you appreciate them.
When was the last time you washed your shower curtain? Today’s the day. Wipe down your shower while you’re at it.
Sort your scarves today. Get rid of (donate box) any you don’t wear.
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
