Carry around a notebook or use a notes app so you can jot down everything from school pick-up times to the last time you nursed, says Jacqueline Pirtle, holistic practitioner and author of Parenting Through the Eyes of Lollipops.
Another good reason to keep that notebook close: when you write down everything that’s on your mind, you’re getting those thoughts out of your head and onto the paper. They’re not your full focus anymore, yet you won’t forget those ideas or concerns, Pirtle says.
This phenomenal list of tips can get you over any work-from-home issues you might have and lets your creativity flow–no matter what type of work you do or what kind of person that you are. Enjoy!
“I used to work from home even before COVID— my challenge was more about how to work from home in a house/garden full of people where the mood can change all the time. The easiest and most fun solution was to create different workspaces where, depending on the mood, I can work the happiest— nothing too crazy, just tables everywhere. Now, I can ask myself every morning, or even many times a day, “Where does the mood take me to be most productive and happiest while working?” Works like a charm!”
Honored to be featured in Eat Like a Writer! What is Covid doing FOR me as a writer? Here it goes…
“I am a published author of four books – some bestsellers – in the self-help genre. My writing is always based on a deep connection to all of consciousness––that is the case for all my books and also my work as a holistic practitioner and podcast host. My passion for helping people to be more connected to themselves and feeling empowered to live happier lives is especially important right now. This changing time of turmoil helps me immensely to go even deeper with myself, to be even happier, and to feel even more satisfaction because it’s a time that asks for more than just go out to have fun and feel happy. It asks for each and everyone of us to go deep inside, to connect, and find well-feeling inside of us, then share that well-feeling with the world––making my writing even deeper and also faster.” ~Jacqueline Pirtle
Self love is important because when you love yourself, you also respect yourself, accept yourself, appreciate yourself, and thank yourself.
Self love is the mother essence of all well-feelings and an undeniable understanding and knowing that you are deserving, that you are supposed to BE here, and that you can give yourself permission to fully BE alive.That is why self love is infinitely important – it’s crucial.

NEW Book Review! Thanks BoyMomStories for taking the time to read and review
…Recently I had the privilege of reading a fantastic book called Parenting Through The Eyes of Lollipops.
…When I first read the synopsis I was a little leery because it seemed so different to how we parent. With having 2 adopted children and 2 bio children that are all so different I wondered if I would be able to utilize the information that was going to be presented.
…I loved how the book helps you to shift the focus from being in charge to the realization that you and your child need to work together to ensure a healthy and happy family.
…The Harmonious Dance: Reading this made me think about that parenting is like a dance. In the book it shows how this Harmonious Dance is a entwined dance between physical and spiritual.
…It’s Never The Child: One sentence that stood out to me in this area is ”Having to make mom and dad feel good is a heavy weight to carry.” This section also helps you look at reasons why a child may misbehaves and realize its not just because they want it there are underlying causes.
…The Love Cycle of Parenthood: With having 2 teenagers and a preteen this pillar really hit home to me This section helps you explore each age and phase of raising your child. It speaks on important growth aspect of love and nourishing yourself and your child.
…I feel the book is an excellent resource to any parent. Even if your parenting style is not the same there are so many ideas that there is something that can be beneficial to anyone.
Give yourself a break parents! 🍭 Join into the resistance-free ways of your kids—breathe, it’s OK to let go, to BE free! 🍭 From that delicious space—set new expectations. Expectations that are fitting and that get you and your kids moving forward. 🍭 Backwards be gone… 🍭
