Does anyone else have a hard time getting back in the game, or is it just me? Doesn’t matter what it is, whenever I give myself a margin of a break, it is so hard for me to get back in the routine of things.
It’s funny because I consider myself a free spirit, but I definitely like some sort of a routine. I want to be the one making the routine though. Don’t give me the rules and regulations, let me make my own. And I don’t like strict routines, just general outlines. But I digress.
I took a break from homeschooling for the holidays. My daughter would have been happy to continue with school, but things just got too busy. Now, on the other side, it’s so hard to get back into the routine of doing school most every day. She doesn’t want to sit and focus and some days I don’t want to sit and work with her- especially when I have a million other things to do!! But we peck away at it a little every day. Slowly, but surely we are getting there.
You may have noticed that I also took a break from social media and blogging. Not a complete social media break, but I definitely have not been as consistent. Right now trying to sit down and write feels like plodding through wet cement. But here I am!
It’s tempting to just not take a break or ever stray from your routine, but that’s not healthy. Taking a break, changing your routine is good. Not only does it give you a chance to rest, but it can also ramp up your creativity. At least that’s what I tell myself sometimes.
So I’d like to know, what are your favorite ways to get back into the swing of things? Tell me how you get back in the game!
