Having a special needs child can often make some aspects of your life unpredictable. Establishing daily routines can help to alleviate some of the stress you might feel. Having a routine can give you more control and stability.
Examples of daily routines can be as simple as consistent times to go to
- Sleep and wake up
- Meals times.
- Daily connections with family and friends.
- Daily movement which will help you to feel more regulated and centered.
Routines can provide order to the day when other areas might be less predictable. Why is this important? Routines are a foundation to living your life on purpose. Instead of waking up and going through the motions of life and letting life happen to you, you are in the drivers seat here and are taking control of your own life where it’s possible to do so. I challenge you to develop routines in your day. You can decide to make the life you have the best that it can be and I know you can do it!
