Practical Tip #31-Everyone Can Help

Lately, I have been asked by friends and family, “What can I do to help you?”

I will share one tip that almost every special needs family needs. I would even go out on a limb and say all special needs families need–prayer.  Specifically prayers for sleep.  Prayers that all the children in the home sleep through a full eight to ten hours.  Prayers that the parents sleep through the night.  Life is so much easier when we are all getting the correct amount of sleep.  I know many families spend years with interrupted sleep patterns.

I know it may sound too simple, but believe me, it truly is a blessing.

Sufficient water intake is very important for any function to be normal in our bodies. Less than 1 of 5 people drinks recommended daily dose of water.

A woman named Sarah admitted that she is not drinking the recommended daily dose of water (2-3 Liters). Sarah suffered from regular headaches and sluggish indigestion. After few discussions with her doctor for both cases, she decided to accept the advice given from the doctor and to start with drinking larger amounts of water every day. She documented and photographed everything for a month. Sarah started to drink 3 liters of water every day.

In the first week she noticed that water is improving her bowel function and her urine was much cleaner thanks to kidney’s better function. Joint stiffness was reduced and her headaches were gone. Improvements in her skin tone and…

Practical Tip #5-Plan Your Day

Using a Daily Planner helps my days flow smoothly.  It took me awhile to realize planning was very helpful for me as a stay at home Mom.  When I transitioned back to working outside the home, it was even more important.   In the chaos of daily life I could see what I do accomplish each day.  I also learned to have reasonable expectations.  For example, I may want to do 20 tasks but I know I can only reasonably complete 5.  This helps me balance each day.

Practical Tip #4 Grade Your Day

After going through the book Simplify Your Life by Marcia Ramsland, I realized how beneficial it was to grade my day!  An “A” day is everyone getting enough sleep and no one is sick.  Life seems relatively normal.  House work is able to be completed.  Tristan is having a good day-no major behavioral challenges.  A “B” day is someone did not get enough sleep, someone is sick, and/or there are behavior challenges to contend with.  Housework may be partially completed–and that is OK!  It is time to roll with the punches of life.  A “C” day is survival mode.  Life is not running smooth for a variety of reasons.  This means you have to go with the flow of life.   Realize this will not last forever.  It could be a day, a week or several weeks.   For example, we could count on January, February, and March being more difficult months for us.  Tristan would have difficulty sleeping through the night.  That meant we were up  nights.  When we realized the pattern we were able to adjust accordingly.

Practical Tip #1 Accepting Help


I know this may be very difficult to do, but let other people help your family.  It could be a variety of ways.  For example, we have had people cut Tristan’s hair for us.  The last few years it has been people who work at the school.  We send him to school and they surprise us with Tristan’s hair being cut!  This has been a huge blessing to us!  Other people spend time with our other son.  Some people can offer help to in our home.  We have friends and family who assist us when we are out in public at the times we need an extra pair of hands.  At times I question life… why can’t we do these activities on our own?  I always come back to the thought that we are truly blessed on this journey.  It makes life a lot more fun with all these relationships.
