5 Strategies to make it the Best Summer Break with your Children
Don’t let it be full of too much of what you don’t want - Be Intentional - Look at what time you have and use the worksheet I share to create a Bucket list together with your family so you do the things you want. Quality is more important than quantity.
Don’t let it fly by without really being there - Be where you are - Carve some time for a simple gratitude practice to reflect on what went well, what you loved, what you did not love, what was hard, and to celebrate what you did together. There will be problems to solve, work to be done but when you are really there, you move through it and even find the joy in it!

Don’t get stuck on expectations for how it should be and miss out how it is now right in front of you - Be Real - The way you do things is more important than what you do.

Learn how to pause and recenter when it gets hard so you have clarity how to best move forward. See the joy even in the imperfection - life is movement and messy. If you are doing it just to do it, to cross off a list, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it.
