I know that in order to homeschool, you NEED children to homeschool, right? So it’s safe to say they’re pretty indispensable, yes? Well, what about homeschooling moms? In this post, we will talk about 5 things that moms can do to start their homeschool day right.
Moms are the teachers, assistants, principals, disciplinarians, lunch ladies, nurses, playground/recess monitors and they wear many more hats than the ones mentioned. It is important that moms take good care of themselves and make their well-being a priority.
Start Your Homeschool Day Right
Take a look at these 5 tips or pieces of advice that have helped me and many homeschooling moms.
1. Don’t jump out of bed right away.
Take a minute to stretch and come up with a visual of what you have on your schedule that day. I personally like to take a few minutes to envision my day, run through that day’s schedule and say a prayer over my day.
It really does give me a sense of direction and I place my goals up front and center. It also helps me to communicate them to my husband so he’s on the same page as me and I can recruit his help, if I need it.
2. Drink a full glass of water as you get ready.
And while you’re at it, why not go a step further and take a vitamin supplement? It can give your body an added boost to better your wellbeing overall.
Water is one of your best allies, believe it or not. I love how drinking water in the morning, it helps me to feel more fit (in my body) and it helps me to think more clearly.
It also helps me avoid getting dehydration headaches, it keeps my body more ready when I work out, but more importantly, it helps me offset my coffee drinking.
