The rest between two deep breaths

Does this routine seem familiar to you?

Wake up.

Start the day.

Fuss with the kids.

Rush around.

Fuss with the kids.

Clean lots of things or do lots of things.

Make lunch and try and remember to eat.

Rush some more.

Clean some more.

Fuss with the kids.

Play with the kids.

Feed the kids.

Clean more things.

Do more things.

Remember what other things you didn’t get to.

Track tomorrow’s things.

Say goodnight to the kids.

Breathe.

Sigh.

Sleep.

Let’s change it up this week.

Let’s slow it down.

Let’s rest between two deep breaths and see what happens.

Breathe deep.

Sigh.

Breathe deeper still.

This week for Project 52: Stay Awake, work rest into your busy days. Find ways to slow down and just rest. Breathe. Sit down or look up. Something other than rushing. Something other than doing. Something other than thinking. And try to do it long before the children are finally asleep. Take a photo of that moment you create for yourself this week.
