Create a Go Bag

I decided that I want to go camping with the kids most weekends. Being outside destresses me, and I’ve been making life-changing memories with the kids.

The trick to doing this without stress was to make it incredibly easy. I store the camping gear in my trunk between sessions. That way, all I need to do is back a few clothes and some food for each adventure. I joke that it’s my version of a ‘go bag.’

What activity do you love doing (with your kids or not)? Can you make it easier to do? Here are a few examples:

  • Keep a set of workout clothes at your desk or in your car, so you can catch a lunch class on a lighter day.

  • Pack a bag of coloring books and small toys that you can take to a restaurant or coffee shop to entertain the kids while you read, if even for a few minutes.

  • Buy a picnic set, so you can just pick up a few groceries from the store to have an outdoor dinner at the park with minimal effort or cleanup.

What’s your ‘go bag’?
