3. Try To Stay Busy
I know I told you not to take on too much. And you shouldn’t.
But I’ve found that keeping myself busy without becoming overwhelmed has been very helpful. Which means, if I have projects to do, I do them.
However, taking things at a leisurely pace is key.
And if you don’t have any projects then create one. There are always things that need to be tended to around a homestead. Check your fencing to see if any of it needs repair.
Or you could always build a new chicken coop, rabbit hutch, or a greenhouse (like we did.) You could also learn a new craft like crochet, knitting, or cross stitch.
Basically, whatever you enjoy or you know needs to be done this is a good time to do it. Because I have found (for myself and my family) that remaining active and busy has really helped to keep our minds in a positive place.
