Does your life ever get too busy? Our does at times.
For instance, last Thursday I dropped the kids off at school and went to work. A couple hours later, I picked Alicia up from school to take her to her doctor’s appointment.
After I returned her to school, I went back to work for a couple more hours. Then, I picked up Austin from school to take him to the DMV.
Later that day, I made a spaghetti dinner for us and checked on homework assignments.
Although both kids are involved in after school activites such as sports, academics and work, Thursday was not a typical day or else I would probably run myself ragged.
This week is Spring Break and we’ve decided to do a staycation. Here’s three ways we are catching up on our rest.
Sunday, we all four slept in and made it a PJ day.
2. Watch TV
Saturday, we watched a good wholesome family movie on Pureflix.
We also watched reruns of Wipeout a show where contestants compete on a wacky course to win prize money. We enjoyed some harty laughter.
My husband enjoys educational programming; especially archeological findings.
Throughout the weekend we found time to read our Bibles, books, newspaper, etc.
Also, I enjoy writing my blog. My daughter enjoys writing fiction short stories or in her diary. We also keep journals.
I especially like our thankful journal where we capture all the good things God has done in our lives for the year and read it together as a family at Thanksgiving.
Obviously this is not an exhaustive list of ways to rest, but it helps us decompress from life’s demands.
What are some ways, you find rest?
