Have I mentioned that I love to teach?
Well, I do. Sharing my experiences and knowledge with others is one of my favorite things to do. This year, I started homeschooling my 12 year old daughter.
Homeschooling has been a great experience for both of us; and just what she needed to thrive in her studies. A couple weeks ago, when she started feeling overwhelmed with our workload, we took a break from her book work for a couple of days and had mindfulness classes.
We watched a couple of documentaries and talked about the science of a stress response (that’s right, I am sneaky. . . I made sure we were still learning).
The activities that my daughter and I did together were helpful for both of us to take some time and look at our daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly routines for self-care and set some goals.
The fact that we were able to be flexible with our schedule and take some time for this when we needed it is invaluable.
