Get Out: Watch the Sunset

Making an effort to watch the sunset is a simple way to get outdoors and take a deep breath.

Sunset

When was the last time that you watched the sun sink below the horizon? It’s breathtaking. It’s often a slow, steady occurrence, but it’s one worth waiting for. I have precious memories of watching the sunset — with my mom when she came to visit me at college and with my own kids at the beach.

It doesn’t take much to watch the sunset. Step outside your door and face west. If you can add a great view into the mix, that’s ideal.

Not sure when sunset is? Plug your stats into this search box from the US Navy to get a year’s chart of all sunset times. (Yes, it’s in military time, just subtract 12.)

Today’s Challenge: Watch the sunset with your kids.

Remember, this doesn’t have to be complicated. But, it will be more fun if you find a pretty view facing west.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
