Arbor Health co-founders, Dr. Zendi Moldenhauer and Amber Ratcliffe discuss things you can do to get clear on priorities, set expectations, and build relationships at home during COVID.
Today we are going to share a little age old wisdom on how to stay sane by getting clear on priorities, setting and communicating expectations & boundaries, being a bucket filler, and building your relationships even during quarantine.
These are challenging times with everyone home trying to work, home school, routines turned upside down - this is HARD. Please be kind to yourself and others - we are all struggling with this.
We have some advice to share, but we are the first to admit that we are not perfect and often stray from these principles as real-life gets in the way. What we can say for sure is when we return to them, life gets better for everyone in our houses.
The Jar of Life - Prioritize what is Important to You
The bottom line, is there is room in the jar for everything if you prioritize putting them in your life in this order. If you put sand in first, or pebbles - there is no room left for the bog rocks - the important things.
This moment in time gives us a chance to re-evaluate our priorities.
Get clear on your priorities – how will you ensure you put things back in your life in the right order? What are your rocks, pebbles and sand?

Building relationships: Communication
Building relationships: The Bucket
We need a village – no one person can be your everything – this is where the cup of coffee comes in. We are social creatures.
Get clear on priorities, set and communicate expectations & boundaries, be a bucket filler, and build your tribe.
