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 50 opportunities:
Read Proverbs 3. Don’t neglect attending church online today. Your soul needs the direction and connection. If you don’t have a home church, I invite you to mine: https://eastview.church/
Take a nap.
Do a 15 minute “connecting date” somewhere away from the kids, i.e. spread a blanket in the yard or living room and just lay on it and talk, sit on the porch, or sit in the kitchen and enjoy a cup of tea and chat. Intimacy doesn’t just happen in marriage–it’s created.
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Do something together as a family–game night, have a picnic on the family room floor, watch home movies, etc. If you need ideas for movies, you can check out the list I provided last week here. (We started watching the The Kindness Diaries series last night from the list–so good and it could spark some great conversations with older kids and teens!)
Take a nice long walk. Walk somewhere different than you usually do, in nature if you can!
Really connect with one of your kids today. Listen to their heart. Don’t try to fix anything…just listen and empathize and validate their thoughts and feelings.
Just clean up any messes made today. Other than that…nothing. Rest.
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
