Mom Brain Holiday Tip #5: Set a (very loose) schedule

As much as we often look forward to holiday breaks, they can be *very* anxiety-provoking for moms of young kids, who often find themselves staring down long, cold days without any schedule or plans. It can help to set a (loose and easily adjustable) schedule for each day, even if the schedule looks something like: Wake up, eat breakfast, take a walk, watch Elf, play board games. Sharing this schedule with your kids ahead of time will help reduce their anxiety, too, as it will give them a sense of what to expect from their day.
