How I Overcame Homeschool Burnout Mode

My Confession

In the five years I have homeschooling I can honestly say I Love to homeschool but that has not always been the case. There have been days when I have felt run-down by it all. Homeschool can be rewarding and challenging as well great deal of time leaving me feeling overwhelmed, emotionally, physically; spiritually sometimes it is too much leaving me at that burnout mode. I have done all I can to encourage my children and guide them through their homeschooling needs I feel as they don’t understand what I am trying to teach them. I was baffled and seeking answers I felt like I was on this roller-coaster ride that was never going to end .There was so many times I felt like saying I don’t want to homeschool no more and then I remember why I was homeschooling in the first place and the negative thoughts diminished. As I said before I love homeschooling and there is no greater joy then being a mom I search-for answers from homeschooling moms and some of the moms knew exactly how I felt and they too had experienced the same feelings and I asked what help them and they told me this the key to defeating burnout mode for them was 
Get more sleep
Take more field trips/outdoors
Be Flexible
Don’t be afraid to change your curriculum if you need to
Don’t add new things to your daily schedule
Family game time
Join a Homeschool support group
Make time for family time
And don’t compete with other families
I listened to the homeschool moms advice and I can say I am in a much more relax state now  and I will be grateful  always to them
