Are you a mindful family?
Busy schedules, screens, rushing.... We struggle to connect on an individual level but when it comes to our own family the disconnection can be even more unplugged than any other relationship around us.
We feel the need to improve our relationships and various aspects of our lives through diet, mindfulness and yoga. And from Soul Mates we believe that all these changes should also be applied in our family life, improving the quality of our presence when we are together.
Tips on how to encourage your children's concentration and attention, tips that we have put into practice and that we know work very well.In order to teach your children to meditate we recommend these simple tips that will help you in your day to day life.Children are highly susceptible to stress and are unable to disconnect, their brain is full of racing thoughts. They have a hard time letting their thoughts go and they sleep an hour less than we did at their age. Lack of sleep causes a bad mood and lack of concentration at school.
Our children get bored, frustrated, have no patience and the moment they want something they believe in the right to have it NOW.
A common conversation that parents who want to be respectful have is whether empathising with our children is causing them to think they have the right to everything. And it is that, unfortunately, that is happening.I’m Amy Holden, a psychologist, certified mindfulness instructor, and mother. I founded Soul Mates because practising yoga and mindfulness has helped me enormously in my own life and in raising my two young sons. I want to give more kids the chance to discover these amazing tools for life.
