5 Self-Care Tips for Homeschool Moms

It’s March, and I’m burnt out. When my kids tell me they’re sick of school, I look at them and think, “Tell me about it! The last thing I want to do today is teach the quadratic formula, grade your grammar lesson, and drive you to co-op. Let’s lay on the couch for the rest of March and watch Little House on the Prairie reruns, shall we?” Just allowing those thoughts to flit through my brain is like taking a mini-vacation. I wonder if I’m really recovered from the holidays (which in my family seems to never end because we run straight into a string of birthdays.) Or maybe I’m hankering for summer break because I live in Florida and the weather is a lovely, lovely 71 degrees outside. The struggle is real.

But, alas, what I really need is a little self-care. Sometimes we give our kids a break from their usual routine and nurture their souls, but we forget to do that for ourselves. Check out these five tips for self-care. Even if you choose to only implement two of them, you’ll find yourself re-energized enough to finish the school year with gusto!
