I always think of harvest season as a time to re-evaluate life. For me, the fall is both a chance to 'take stock' and an opportunity to do things differently. When I think of how this time of year lends itself to new practices and new habits, I’m excited by the potential to change the ‘feel and function’ of life in my home.
Some very small adjustments can create more calm and peace for my family and this time of year has me searching high and low for ideas.
All this reflection forces me to slow down and breathe when I would otherwise be panicking about all that there is to action, organize, schedule, sign and submit. I’m easily overwhelmed by tasks as my 3 children head back to school and re-enter the organized chaos of extracurricular activities. This year is no different.
What I am about to share will not only change your approach, it promises to harmonize your home-life too.
If you adopt this idea with self-compassion, dedication and focused attention on personal priorities, the opportunity to make this upcoming academic year the best EVER is very real.
