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 6:
Read Psalm 91 aloud today. When we read and hear the words, they can be even more powerful.
Sit and breathe. Sit for five minutes, close your eyes, and focusing on breathing in and breathing out slowly.
Ask each other what you need this weekend, then make a plan to help each other get what you each need.
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Put on music and have a dance party. Teach your kids the hokey pokey and the chicken dance. Let each person have their own cameo performance. Laugh and have fun together.
Teens: Have them create their own cooking show and post it on social media. Tag @magnolia and #webelieveinhome (if you didn’t see Joanna Gaines challenge on this yesterday you can watch the video on Joanna Gaines Facebook and Instagram pages!)
When was the last time you did a push up? (Yes, doing them on your knees counts!) See if you can do 10!
Make a meal plan for the next five days. Plan for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks. When there’s a plan in place it reduces decision anxiety!
Go through your shoes today. Throw away those that are in bad shape, give away those you don’t wear, and organize what you keep.
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
