One of my favorite things is peace and quiet. I need lots of it to not only think and focus on mental tasks, but also to recharge my batteries.
Here are a few things we do to keep things calm, quiet, and peaceful in our home:
- Limit electronic stimulation, T.V.,and any loud or obnoxious noise or toys.
- Speak in soft calm voices.
- Take loud or rough play outdoors.
- Spend time in nature, go on nature walks, and do nature study to promote thoughtfulness and peacefulness.
I've been making it a point to go on a nature walk at least twice a week and my children are loving it. On our last walk up into the beautiful Story Canyon, my little Bo said, "This is a good nature walk." It was beautiful, peaceful, and yes, very good.
I'm on a quest to simplify our homeschool and I'd love to share with you what I'm learning along the way in a #Simplify Your Homeschool series.
I'd love for you to join me! Is your home quiet and peaceful? What works for you? Do you want more peace and quiet? I challenge you to pick at least one item from the list above and implement it in your home.
