Make Healthy Changes

Your physical health is the foundation for all other aspects of your life. Taking steps to improve your physical health can help you feel more energized and motivated in other areas of your life. Consider joining a gym or taking up a new sport, eating healthier meals, getting enough sleep, and incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine.


Sometimes all it takes is getting away from everyday life to gain clarity on what we truly want out of our lives. Traveling can be expensive, but there are plenty of ways to save money while still having an amazing experience. Consider looking into budget airlines or staying at hostels instead of hotels if cost is an issue for you.

Reconnect With Old Friends

Mid-life crises can often leave us feeling lonely and isolated from our peers. Thankfully, there are helpful platforms that make it easier for people who have lost touch over the years to reconnect with one another. It’s always nice being able to catch up with old friends, after all.

Pursue a Better Career

If you’re feeling unfulfilled in your current job, it might be time to look for something new. Use free online tools to create an eye-catching resume that will make you stand out when applying for jobs. These tools are often easy-to-use and provide plenty of customization options so that you can create the perfect resume in no time.

Start Gardening

Gardening is a great way to connect with nature and find peace during times of stress or uncertainty. If you’ve never gardened before, there are plenty of reviews and tips available online to help get you started. From selecting the right plants for your climate to creating the perfect garden layout — these resources will help make sure your garden is off to a great start.


Volunteering is an amazing way to give back, develop new skills, and make a lasting impact on the lives of others. It can also be a great way to gain experience and jumpstart your career. There are many organizations out there that need volunteers, so take some time to research different opportunities near you. Whether it’s online or in person, you can find the perfect fit for you that allows you to do something meaningful with your time.

Explore Entrepreneurship

Starting a business is no easy task. Careful consideration should be taken in regard to creating detailed business plans and marketing strategies and researching potential customer bases. Legalities should also be considered, and registering your business through an online formation service could prove beneficial. With the correct groundwork, entrepreneurship can offer many pathways to success.

There are plenty of ways to approach and live through a mid-life crisis. Update your resume for the chance to explore better job opportunities, use helpful platforms to rekindle old friendships, and even consider entrepreneurship — all these activities offer unique and inspiring paths during this transitional period.

How to Reduce Homework Stress in Your Household

Is homework an ongoing battle at your house? Well, you’re definitely not alone. Though we all want our kids to succeed in the classroom, it’s exhausting to nag them to get their homework done every single evening. With these helpful strategies from NieCat Life Coaching, you may be able to make homework a little less painful in your household.

Provide internet access

Even if you limit screen time in your family, your kids likely need access to the internet for their homework. According to Speak Up, 79% of high school students and 69% of middle schoolers use the internet to do their homework at least a few days a week. When it comes to internet service, your best option is typically an unlimited plan, especially if your kids occasionally have to do their homework outside of their home.

With unlimited service, even if the base price is higher, you won’t have to worry about overage charges, which can add up very quickly. It’s also important to teach your kids about safe internet practices and establish some online rules for your family to protect them while they are using the internet.

Set up a homework station

No matter how big or small your home is, consider designating a specific area where your kids can get their homework done. Many children like to lounge in their bedrooms while doing their homework, but that isn’t always the best solution. It can be more productive if they are sitting in an appropriate chair, at a desk or table, and in a well-lit area of the house that is free of distractions. This area should be free of clutter and messes to keep them focused, and you can add some indoor plants to relieve stress.

Parents should be relatively close by and available to provide feedback whenever possible; however, if you’re working from home, know that you may need to establish some boundaries to prevent work interruptions. Work with your child to create a schedule that meets everyone’s needs.

Another thing to consider: believe it or not, the temperature can have a profound impact on your child’s work habits. If the study space is drafty, take steps to fix it. There are DIY steps you can take, but damaged windows should be repaired. Luckily, Angi has plenty of listings for residential window repair, with the national average repair cost around $290, depending on your area.

Break up the routine

Some kids just can’t pound through all their homework without a break. If your kids work better in spurts, set a timer and provide breaks often, but make them short. Also, gauge your child’s interest and energy level to figure out a routine that works best. Some children prefer to start on homework as soon as they walk through the door. Others need a snack and time to decompress before they can get started. Other children, may work more quickly and productively after dinner.

Get some help

If your child is truly struggling with the work, a tutor might be your best solution. As a parent, you can help them but many children respond better to an outsider when it comes to teaching – and sometimes the subject is out of mom’s and dad’s comfort zone. Additionally, it never hurts to get an outside perspective, so if you’re having a hard time getting through to your child, you can also benefit from the expertise of a teen coach.

How much is too much?

According to Edutopia, The National Education Association and the National PTA agree with the standard of 10 minutes of homework per grade level each night. However, in many schools across the county, the amount of homework that is being assigned these days is excessive. Too much homework can lead to family conflicts, as well as lack of focus, a decrease in comprehension, an increase in stress, and even physical illness. If you feel like your kid has too much homework, it may be time to meet with the teacher or administrators to discuss your options.

Homework can be challenging at every age, and frustrating for both children and their parents. However, by working with your kids to establish a consistent routine, as well as utilizing technology and assistance, you can make things a little easier on your children and yourself.
