Zen Mommy Minute: Unscheduled Time

How important is unscheduled time in your life? For your children? This week, join me in making down time a priority for yourself and your family; for truly, it is in these moments of “doing-nothing” time that the magic and wonder of childhood (and life!) happen.

It’s in our “being-ness”, not our “doing-ness” that we feel connected to life. If you are feeling disconnected, where can you say “no” in life and perhaps schedule yourself some much needed unscheduled time? 🙂

I’d love to hear your thoughts on unscheduled time for yourself and your kids. Do you remember having open, unstructured free time to play, create and imagine when you were growing up? What sorts of things did you “do”? Do your kids have enough unscheduled time in their lives? Do you? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
