You know when you start to feel zapped and over stretched. You’ve been running at supersonic speed for just a tad too long and now you’re body is telling you to SLOW DOWN.
Yep. That’s where I’m at. In fact, that’s where the whole family is at.
With the start of the new school year, my kid has been zonked despite a consistent bed time schedule. There’s so much to learn and even though we don’t over program her with a zillion extracurricular activities, she’s still zonked and rightly so. There are new friendships to establish, new neural connections being formed all day long, and daily physical activity. Good nutritious food, sleep, and a good routine has sustained her so far but she’s reaching her max.
We, the parents, have been equally busy. At the parent level we’ve been on the go, going, going, going at work, at home, and we feel like we’ve reached our warp speed. Go any faster and I think we’ll all just flop on the floor into marshmallow goo.
Our decision: this weekend became a weekend to rejuvenate and recharge. I hit the health food store in search of new products that’ll help us get past humps like this. I ended up getting some new things to try like oat tea (super cool, wait until I get a chance to write this review!) and probiotics for kids (again, super cool). There’s more, but you’ll have to read future posts for the rest of them.
In the meantime, let’s all take a deep breath and greet this week (aka Monday aka the new start of yet another busy work week) with a big rejuvenated smile, shall we?
