#092: 5 ways to stay sane as a homeschool mom

posted in: podcast 0

Welcome! I am Mystie Winckler, wife, homemaker, reader, writer, and classical homeschooling mother of 5. We are Simply Convivial because we keep first things first and know that our attitudes, our hearts, set the tone in our homes and matter before God more than our to-do list. Thank you for joining me.

Do you ever feel like you’re going to go crazy? Of course you do. We all do. What should we do when we feel that way? Are there ways to minimize or prevent the feeling? Here are 5 suggestions I have for battling or circumventing the inevitable onset of crazy-making.

Let’s dig in.

5 Sanity-Savers for Homeschooling Moms

Rather than things to do like “get out by myself” or “carve out reading time” or “get exercise in the fresh air,” all of which are important to, the five things I am sharing today are mindsets, perspectives, ways of thinking that shift the focus off whatever is dragging me down and fix it on something that will lift me back up.

Turns out that homemaking is a lot of work. It’s way more complicated than we expected when we first got started. More than mundane housework, we come to realize the duty we have as wives and mothers to be the atmosphere of our home. Our attitudes matter more than our housekeeping. 

That’s why in Simply Convivial Membership everything – even help with chores – begins with centering and correcting our perspective, our attitudes, and our relationship with the God who gave us the situations we’re in to steward for His glory. What He’s called us to, we can do, and it’s better to not do it alone.
