Think about what matters, plan a Be With Nature Date for you and yours.
parent advice for being with nature
When the weather outside is frightful, visiting a museum, the green houses at a botanical garden, or the indoor exhibits at a zoo can keep you walking with nature. When living in New York, the choices were endless, but nature is closer in Colorado and we have indoor gardens, a zoo, and plenty of museums.
I also recommend my Pinterest Be With Beauty Board for a quick nature break as you work at your computer
Finding time for nature break or any restorative break remains a major challenge for today’s over-worked, too high expectation world, and particularly hard for parents. Any advice for other parents? Comments welcome.
Too stressed to take a break? Get my Parents Are People Too: An Emotional Fitness Training Program for Parents and if that doesn’t help think about therapy. Life should have many play dates.
SAVE THE DATE: March 21st is my 76th birthday. To celebrate I am holding a Book Launch Party on Facebook. The book: Twelve Easy Exercises to Tame Mad, Bad, and Sad Feelings. If you are on Facebook, support this old one and come to my birthday/book launch party.
DISCLAIMER: FORGIVE MY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS FOR I HAVE DYSGRAPHIA. If you need perfect posts, you will not find them here. Dysgraphia is a not well-known learning disability and means that sometimes my sentence structure is not that easy to follow or I make other errors. Still, most people understand me. All of my books are professionally edited, but not all of my blog posts are. If this troubles you, feel free to read elsewhere. If you persevere, you are practicing kindness by lifting my spirits for that means you find what I say helpful and that is one of my missions. Kindness always repays those who spread it.
