Monday Love ❤️

The Curiosity Approach is a heart centred approach
As we enter into a new week we hope you’ve taken the time to rest and rejuvenate ❤️

To look after ourselves and fill our ‘own’ emotional cups

We give so much of ourselves to the children we care for, sometimes, in the busyness and stress of everyday life, our own well being & heart gets overlooked.

‘We tend to pay attention to our physical needs and the thousands of thoughts bouncing around our brains, yet when it comes to self-love, generosity, and connectedness, we are quick to put the emotional work on the back burner.’ (1)

Here are 3 ways to bring self love into our own lives! Credit link below

❤️Be patient but persistent. Self-love is ever evolving. It’s something that needs to be practiced daily but can take a lifetime to master. So be kind and support yourself through the hard times.

❤️Have fun! Get out there and do the things that light your fire. Enjoy them, enjoy being you and enjoy your incredible life.

❤️Embrace and love the things that make you different. This is what makes you special.

It’s imperative in this crazy fast paced world that we fill our lives with LOVE, for ourselves and the children we care for!

Let it give us the strength and power to push back on the negatives than no longer serve us.

Children need our strength, to protect childhoods and protect play. To transform from outdated practices and lead from the HEART ❤️

New research has shown how malleable the human system is, and how it can be shaped by the early childhood .

with a baby may help shape the baby’s hormone system for future social interactions. Babies who are and to more, develop more oxytocin receptors during the first 18 months of life, according to a study of 101 babies and their mothers. Oxytocin is often referred to as the ‘love hormone’ because it is thought to play a role in forming relationships. Increased levels of oxytocin throughout life enhance maternal bonding, social decision-making, and processing of social stimuli and social memory.

Researchers from the University of Virginia have investigated how a ’s oxytocin system develops in the months after birth. They recruited 101 mothers and their babies, and observed how each mother interacted with her baby at 5 months old, and again at 18 months old. DNA from saliva from the mothers and babies was taken at each session to specifically look at a gene that codes for the receptor for oxytocin.

The mothers’ levels of methylation at the oxytocin receptor gene remained constant. But the levels changed for babies— showing those that had experienced more involved play with their mothers, including more eye contact, had more oxytocin receptors at 18 months. These babies also appeared to have a different temperament, and were less likely to seem frustrated or be overly sensitive to intense lights, sounds and textures.

Lead researcher, Kathleen Krol, says there is an early window in infancy in which a baby’s environment and social interactions can impact the development of their oxytocin system. Although this research is still in its infancy, with complex relationships between a child’s early experiences, social environment, and their epigenome, she thinks the findings are likely to apply to the way babies interact with other main caregivers too, such as .

This study demonstrates one potential mechanism— involved play with a caregiver— by which early experience epigenetically establishes and shapes trajectories of whole life development. It may also suggest that training that focuses on increasing social engagement between parent and infant might be a possible intervention strategy to reduce discomfort in early childhood development.
