You’re a poet and didn’t know it

Sometimes I need something to just get myself out of my head. Interesting enough to distract me from worries or that looming todo list, but not hard enough that I’m drained.


So this week, I tried Gretchen Rubin’s idea of writing a haiku. (As a refresher, a three-line poem with has 5 syllables in the first, 7 in the second, and 5 in the last.)


I was surprised at how much it calmed me and was fun. Here is mine:


Kids wake before dawn

TV Chromecasted from bed

Grateful for Netflix


Take 5-minutes to try next time you need to wind down. And please share!
