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 March 15. If you missed it, you can find it here.
Here’s Day 9:
Read Philippians 4:6-8. Write it down and post it somewhere. Focus on the word “peace.”
Your skin is probably dehydrated from the winter weather. Today after your shower, slather yourself in your favorite body lotion or oil.
Oh and are you still reading? Get another chapter under your belt today!
Start talking about a post-COVID19 plan for a regular date night. Talk about when you could take some time for just the two of you on a regular basis: weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Determine a plan for childcare and then put it on your calendar for the rest of 2020. Make it happen!
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day. This week it would also be wise to have everyone have some “alone time” for an hour after lunch every day. You need a break and they need a break from each other. It’s a great time they can do something like reading, coloring, legos, or coloring pictures for grandma.
Kids: Did you allow them to decorate your windows/patio door with dry erase or wet erase markers? It’s time to have them wash that off so they can do it again later this week!
Teens: Have them research how the brain works today. Tell them that they get to share what they learn at dinner time tonight.
Today is baseboard day! Take a damp rag and clean all of the baseboards in your house. (Got kids or teens? This is one they can do too!)
It’s mending day! Do you have some clothes that you set aside to fix? Sew a button on? Work on getting a stain out? Today’s the day!
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!
