I'm always looking for a way to move more during the day. That's why I'm calling today Movement Monday! Give your heart and lungs some extra love today, by jumping rope while counting to 30! Challenge yourself and see how many sets you can do. If you find that counting to 30 is too difficult, start off small by counting to 10 and increase a little more each day until you can reach 30. You can do it!

Today is Tip Tuesday! For today's mindfulness tip, I'm sharing mindfulness activities that you can do outdoors. The weather this past weekend was beautiful and I spent a lot of time outdoors practicing mindfulness. I listened to the birds chirping, I felt the warm sun on my face and I walked around in the grass with my bare feet. Being mindful is being aware and paying attention to what is going on in the PRESENT moment. Click on the link below to learn some ways that you can practice mindfulness outdoors.

Today's Mindfulness activity is called "Five Finger Tracing". This is a great meditation to use when you're feeling anxious or nervous. This is also a great meditation to do when you just need to regroup. Enjoy!

Happy Mindful Monday!
How do you begin your day? Do you grab your cellphone and dive right in to see what's happening on social media? Do you turn on the T.V? If so, why not start your day off with some mindfulness? What is mindfulness? Mindfulness in a nut shell is paying attention on purpose. It's being in the present movement while also focusing on the breath. Starting a mindfulness practice or routine, is one of the best ways to support your child. It helps them recognize and cope with their emotions in a positive way as well as promotes self awareness. Here is a morning meditation that kids can use to start their day! πŸ•‰πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈβ€οΈ

One of the five principles of Yoga is a proper diet. Yesterday we learned about Go, Slow and Whoa foods. The children made "smoothies" with this file folder activity while we talked about the healthy ingredients. Later made real smoothies, which the children loved!

Easy Pose, aka "criss-cross applesauce", is a pose that calms and balances. It also strengthens the back and spine and encourages good posture. When doing this pose, it's good to have a yoga blanket placed under the sitting bones for extra support and comfort. Go on....STRIKE A POSE! 😊
