Do Something Different

Try these ideas when you need a fresh start:

  • Go for a walk. If the weather is rainy, do your walking at the local mall.

  • Plan mini-vacations, such as a weekend or day trip. To break up a routine that's become monotonous, you need new things to look forward to.

  • Invite company over.

  • Create separate space: Mom's night out. Dad's afternoon out. An outing with friends for the kids.
