Mom Hack: Leave it Empty

When I was bulk preparing my kids' lunches on Sunday for the week, I complained to Joe that I had no idea what to put in the smallest compartment of their lunch boxes. "Chloe doesn't like raisins, and Rowan's teachers won't let me add M&Ms."

He responded, "You know what I did last week when you were traveling? I just left that compartment empty."

I mean, why not? How often do we put stress on ourselves to fill in all of the 'compartments' in our lives when they ultimately won't matter.

So, today, when you are stressing about something (even minor), ask yourself what would the impact be if you just let it go. Doing nothing might be the best hack yet.
