Hard Days

You know those days? The ones that you know will be tough from the minute the alarm goes off. They happen. And they have been happening to me lately. So, I have created a list of tools to get through those days. If you have any to add, please leave them in the comment section. The winter solstice is coming. The days will become longer and more light will surround us. There is something so comforting about cycles. Even though there are hard days, the inevitability of easy ones remains.

I highly recommend playing with children. Just play. Pretend your 5. Don't worry about if the play dough gets on the carpet or if there will be paper scraps on the table when you get done. Play. Or color in coloring books.
