Since starting this blog one thing has never changed — my love for sharing. While I typically stick with things I’m good at like home decor, fashion, makeup and other things of the sort I felt it was important to share these important resources I’ve come across. Since I will be adding teacher to my resume this week I’ve done some research to provide helpful links for those that will be joining me.
In addition to homeschooling I will be juggling both work and keeping up with the blog. More now than ever I’m thankful for this space and the community that we have created. I hope you can find comfort knowing that we are in this together and I’m always here for you.
As we all navigate the unknowns I hope todays post offers some help whether your navigating working from home, taking on the role of teaching children or adjusting to quarantined home life.
Coming from someone who works out of the home 98% of the time my best advice is to get yourself up, dressed and ready for the day even if your not leaving the house. I promise you will feel better then the days you hang in your jammies all day. Another key to feeling great is staying active, find time to take a walk or and eating healthy.
