Sometimes it seems as though days have two speeds: hurried and breakneck. Want to learn how to hop off the roller coaster?


Having rituals at home that aren’t goal-oriented provides a calm point in an otherwise unpredictable day. These are activities that are solely about being in the present.

Head Outdoors

Enjoy the little things that you see, ones that you might miss when rushing passed.  Experience the weather, the smells, the texture of the outdoors.

Have a Family Meal

Take the time to plan the table setting and to prepare the food. Keep the cooking from being labor-intensive by serving one of your go-to meals. Technology tends to make everyone frantic, so save phone calls and e-mails until you’re finished and instead spend the time catching up on everyone’s activities.
