How to survive a quarantine

Hey Everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute because, crazy times, I got another job and just could not keep up with everything. But now it seems that we have a bit more…ahem….time on our hands these days.

If you are anything like me,  you seem to have more time and less time all simultaneously. I am working two jobs from home and am now homeschooling all of my children as well. We enjoy the homeschooling, I enjoy the work, it’s the trying to do both that frequently seems impossible.

Anyone else’s kids eating way more than normal as well?

Anyway, the best way I have found to survive is to…you guessed it…get outside. I need to clear my mind, find ways to quiet all those anxious voices in my head, and calm myself. It is proven that exposure to sunshine helps our mood.

So, make sure you are following the laws in your area and the safest practices for everyone (yourself and your greater man), but get outside. Whether it’s your backyard, chalk on your driveway, or a short walk. Get some of that divinely made vitamin D in your body. It won’t fix everything, it won’t, but it’ll be like taking Tylenol for a headache – it will ease enough of the pain to give you the oomph to get through the next bit of time. Your kids will thank you for not only choosing sanity for yourself but for them as well.

I have been walking 4-5 miles a day to start my day and it is life changing. Here is a little inspiration to help convince you that you should head outside too. This is the green belt near my house that is life giving to me right now.

 

Let me know how you are finding creative ways to get outdoors during this time!

See You Outside!

One thought on “How to survive a quarantine”

  1. Doing it all (teaching my own students, teaching my children, trying to manage our home) is driving me crazy. But this weekend we decided to go camping. We were completely isolated and being out in nature was good for my soul.
