A series of posts on life as a "Mindful Mommy."
Once I became a more mindful mother it was natural to want to share this powerful way of thinking and being with my children.
I often encouraged them to reduce stress and worry by coming back to their breath; focusing on what was "right" in that very moment; stopping, looking and listening to what was going on inside of them so they could make a more self-compassionate choice.
In creating The Mindful Mommy's Back-to-School Survival Guide, I wanted to include SOS (Serenity Over Stress) Strategies for kids too. Here is one of them that I designed, a perfect match to Mindful Mommy SOS Strategy #9 ("Loving Yourself More"). It's called: "I Pledge Allegiance to My Heart."
You can read how to do it here and how to teach it to your child so she or he can be more calm, clear, and wise too!
"I Pledge Allegiance to My Heart."
is a touchpoint. a resting place, a "remembering" of who we really are and how we can best live—kindly and compassionately with ourselves and others.
