If you have the flexibility in your schedule to do it, start your day with something creative and inspiring. Maybe it’s that novel or short story you’ve been working on, or a painting, or a craft project. Whatever it is, if you can, give it your first hour. It’s uninterrupted time, and a good start to the day.
If you hear that your kid (or one of their friends) has head lice, your first reaction might be a mixture of disgust, panic, and an urge to disinfect everything in your house. That would be overkill. Head lice aren’t a health hazard, and even medication-resistant “super lice” can be eradicated with proper treatment.
