Are you getting enough rest every day?

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

As we have been talking about summer schedules and routines, I have been thinking about those of you who have been staying up late and getting up early.

With the longer summer days, we have a tendency to relax our before bed routines for ourselves and our children. You start staying up a little later. Before you know it, you are staying up until midnight or after. If you are able to stay up this late and sleep until 8:00 or 9:00 the next morning, then you are still getting your 8 hours of sleep at night.

My summer schedule shifts the other way. I am getting up at 5:15 every morning. This means I am finishing my before bed routine at 9:00. I am in bed and relaxing before 9:30.

The boys are staying up until 10:00 with my husband, and I don’t get them up early. This is where I get my early morning time for Bible study and exercise before they are awake.

The past few weeks have been hard on my sleep patterns with my son’s health needs, and I have instituted afternoon nap time when needed for me.

Adequate rest is an essential part of a healthy life. Make sure you get enough sleep each day.

Today’s Zone Mission is to check your bathroom supplies.

Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.

My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and a salad.

Have a great day!
