Beat the Back-to-School Blues

Many moms suffer from a case of the Back-to-School blues as kids head off to school this time of year. (I was never one of those moms!) Even if you aren’t so sad to see the kids head back to school, or if you home school and the kids don’t leave you, this time of year always brings change and often a bit of sadness at the passing of summer. Here are some ideas to keep your mind off the end of summer:

#1. Start planning next year’s vacation! No, it isn’t too early. Daydreaming about the possibilities and beginning to make plans will give you something to look forward to doing. Read Vacation Planning Tips for info and ideas on why now is the time to start.

#2. Project time! From Organizing with the Number Three, check out item #4 for tips to find 20 hours a month to give toward whatever projects you identify as most important to you.

#3. Me time. No, it isn’t selfish to take care of yourself. Read through Me Time and give yourself permission to take good care of YOU – physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially.
