Thanks to Earth Footwear for sponsoring this post.
This time of year, my to-do list is bigger than I am.
It’s tempting to hunker down in the house and work until you forget what it was like to relax.
That to-do list is tricking you though. It will never be done. Want to know what will help you actually work through that to-do list? Walking away for a bit.
I know you have every excuse in the world why you can’t take a break. I’ve used all of them myself. This time of year though, as moms, I think we have to be careful. It’s easy to get so bogged down with tasks that we forget to enjoy our family and enjoy the place we live.
I have a challenge for you.
If you do this, it will help your days go by so much smoother and, believe it or not, you will end up getting more done.
Take 30 minutes every day to have an adventure.
Adventure takes many forms. Your adventure could be:
- Playing basketball with your kids in the backyard
- Discovering a new place in your city to explore
- Going hiking
- Taking the dog for a walk
- Visiting a new friend
- Visiting an old friend
- Reading a book you’ve been looking forward to
- Working on a new hobby
Whatever your adventure looks like, make sure you set aside time every day.
We’ve been busy at my house lately. There hasn’t been any down time at all and no down time makes me a grumpy mom.
The other day when we had absolutely no extra time, we packed up the car and set out for a short adventure at a local hiking spot.
Once we got there, I stopped thinking about my to-do list. I stopped worrying about how I was going to get everything done. I just enjoyed the view.
My adventure was extra exciting because I had a pair of new shoes from Earth Footwear to try out.
These Davana boots are my new favorite. They are so comfortable and I love that they can be dressed up or dressed down. Living in a place with some killer hiking spots only minutes away, I love being able to stay comfortable and get out to go explore.
Have you ever tried Earth Footwear? This was my first experience with the brand and I am hooked. They have a unique negative heel sole design that helps support your foot.
I suspect there’s lots of (comfortable) exploring in my future, which is good because I have all kinds of places I want to drag my family to with me.
They are always more than willing to take a break and go have an adventure with me.
We always discover new things.
And almost always find something we can laugh about.
You definitely can’t beat the views that we find.
It’s amazing what you can find, even close to home.
There’s always time for 30 minutes of adventure a day. Those days when you think your schedule is too full are exactly when you need to take a time out and recharge.
Here’s to lots of adventures in your future!
