I just blogged about this... in short we failed miserably at rhythm. Which was ok. But we were gone for 6 weeks and we started to feel it in a bad way after a while. And we're not even THAT good about rhythm compared most true blue Waldorf families.
For us, being spontaneous is good, but keeping some basics like nutrition and bed time routines in place was dearly needed.
|We have always stuck to the same times (give or take a little) for waking and bedtime, meals and snacks and rest. That helps ALOT!
One thing to ponder is how you can alternate out-breath activities with in-breath activities to minimize meltdowns on everyone's part
|The other rhythm that we kept from hometime was bedtime. We could flex about an hour on that, but past that, we all suffered so much that it wasn't really worth it.|
