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.
