To Be More Joyful: Take a Time Out

Posted By Jessica Fisher On August 1, 2010 @ 1:18 am In Joyful Womanhood | 6 Comments


I’m on a quest to be a more joyful mom [5]. And while I am not one who counts the days to “get away” from her children [6], I do appreciate a few moments that are little quieter, a little simpler, a little more restful than the go-go-go that my regular days hold.

Over the years, I’ve found seven ways to take a time out that help me unwind and help to reenergize me for the next thing. I’ve written about them extensively before, so let me point you to them once again. Choose one, two, or seven and figure out a way to start implementing them into your life.

I think you will find that second wind we all need on this road to Joyful Motherhood.

Which time out sounds most appealing to you in your current stage of life?
