10 Ways to Simplify Life & Enjoy Your Children.

Via on Jun 12, 2011

Children crave your attention? Give it to them.

  1. Ditch the make-up: chances are you look nicer without it and your skin will be happier.
  2. Accept a messy house. (Not a dirty house.)
  3. Find some funky hats or scarves for those bad hair days.
  4. Eliminate the television or put a cloth over it.
  5. Wear comfortable clothes for plenty of movement, turn on some music and boogie!
  6. Involve children in cooking – They can chop or grate vegetables, mix ingredients, taste test.
  7. Involve children in laundry – Show them how to load the washing machine and set aside a certain day for “family folding.”
  8. Involve children in cleaning – Using nontoxic products like vinegar and water, give them a water bottle and cloth and let them polish cabinet doors, windows and furniture.
  9. Eliminate a schedule (as often as possible), embrace flowing in the moment. – Outside of work or school, try to keep obligations and activities to a minimum or eliminate them all together for a while. Think simple activities: bubbles, chalk, dancing, singing, coloring, nature walks.
  10. Sit and be with your children, they will thank you!

How do you simplify life, enjoy your children and let yourself become more available to them?

  1. This is wonderful! We do most of it…I've kept my business intentionally small and let it grow organically as the kids are in school more… #10 is my favorite…sit and be with them. So important!
