Have you ever had one of those days? Has getting out of bed ever been like trying to budge a boulder? Has it ever taken everything you’ve got to get through the day? Of course you have, you are a parent! On those particularly difficult days, I find myself needing to take a break from routine, and do something that feels good. It may be a little ritual that you take a few minutes for, such as going outside for some fresh air and sun, staring out the window and nibbling on a chocolate, or relaxing in an oversized chair with throw and a cup of hot apple cider. (Those are some of my favorite things!) It may be something that takes more time such as, “Hey kids, let’s go to the park and throw the Frisbee!” or “Honey, let's go out tonight, just you and me!” It is not only kids that need that kind of spontaneous fun. Although we are grown ups, we need that break, that bit of fun to keep us young and to forget about the responsibilities of life for a few moments. How do you take 5?
I get on the internet or I go for a run. sometimes just getting fresh air is a big help
I go for a walk!
I normally sit back and drink some fresh peach- raspberry tea, open a book, or write :)
surf the internet … it seems simple but I am so busy with mini me its nice for time to myself
Yes I feel like that too! Laying outside in the sun with a book while my son colors the fence with chalk gives me a huge boost :)
