The school run

Every school morning we walk this way to school.

The pressure builds in our home as we rush around getting ready to leave the house.

Tempers start to fray, voices rise, jaws clench, until finally we tumble out into the fresh air.

And breathe.

This walk to school is our sanity saver. We slow down, we breathe, we process, we connect. We smell the rain, we feel the cool breeze, we hear the rumble of morning traffic.

We find calm in the rhythm of our footsteps.

How do you find your calm?

  1. That’s great you have found some calm in these times. I like to be sitting with loved ones and watch a movie or play a game. Having a bath or long shower and a bit of pamper can also be calming. Thank you for sharing.
