In this unique season of family togetherness, 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.
I introduced the concept of “Today’s Opportunity Plan” on Sunday. If you missed it, you can find it here.
Here’s Day 4:
Listen to Christian music all day today. Tell Alexa to play “Top Christian” or “Hillsong Worship” on Amazon music. If you don’t have Amazon Music and Alexa doesn’t live at your house, you can listen to a great Christian station at www.wcicfm.org.
Call or Facetime a friend you haven’t talked to in forever.
Enjoy a one-minute hug today. Just hold each other for a minute. (You’ll be amazed at how long a minute is when you’re hugging!) If the kids want to do an Oreo Cookie hug, set the timer for 1 minute and tell them you get the first minute and when the timer dings, it’s Oreo Cookie time!
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Got any wet erase or dry erase markers? If your kids are old enough to manage them, give them permission to decorate your windows and/or patio window!
If your child is learning their letters, you can also write the letters on a patio door at their level and then give them a wet paper towel to play a game with them: “Erase the “P.” “Erase the letter that the word ‘dog’ starts with.”
Teens: Have them plan an entire meal that they can cook for the family this week! Once they have it planned, work together to see what ingredients you already have on hand. If you need something more, have them create an ingredient list so you can order/pick up the groceries needed. Determine when they will be in charge of dinner. Ask if they’d like your help at all or if they want to do it completely on their own.
You're in! Now you just have one thing left to do. You'll need go to your inbox and verify your email! If you don't see the email immediately it should arrive within a few minutes of signing up. If you still don't see it, make sure you check your Junk/Spam/Promotions folder. If it's in there, you'll want to mark me as a "Safe sender" so it doesn't end up in that box again! So glad to welcome you to my blog family!
