The following is a guest post written by Kara Anderson of The Very Next Thing.
It was a few days after Christmas, and our house was a mess. The pantry was empty and there was a house-wide sock shortage.
It was at that point, I realized, that we had definitely lost our rhythm.
I first came across the idea of rhythm when reading about Waldorf education methods a few years ago. It appealed to me as a way to help my children know what to expect in the course of a day, week or even season.
Only later did I realize how rhythm brings me a personal inner-peace, and how that positively impacts our days.
It often takes a busy time (like the holidays or vacation) to realize the many ways that having a rhythm helps me as a mother.
