Spring break is finally here! It’s a time when so many embark on wonderful vacations to disconnect from a nearly finished school year.

We, on the other hand, are stay-home-spring-break-disconnectors. My daughter and I sat down to discuss what we wanted to do this week on our break. The verdict? No schedule. No plan. No thinking. Sure we have a few activities we’d like to do somewhere along the way, but mainly we’re just going with the unplan theme.

During our homeschool year, we keep a specific schedule and routine. My daughter and I are both schedule people so we tend to live by a plan during each school day. But there are times needed to let go of the calendar, to-do lists, and schedule …  and just be. For us, this week will be one of those times.

Life clips along so quickly. Without even trying, constant stressors bombard us. The reality is, we all need time to decompress and let go of the worries and concerns of the day. So go ahead … unplan, let go, decompress, and don’t feel guilty–we’re just filling up our tanks.

“Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing,

of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear,

and not bothering.” – Pooh’s Little Instruction Book
