The Best Secrets to Being a Mindful Family


Let’s keep it real, friends, being present and mindful in everyday living with kids is tough. Most of us have to work on it every single day. I know I do. That is part of being a good parent and a good teacher: working on yourself. At least, understanding what you’re bringing to the table.

Integrating mindfulness into a daily routine doesn’t have to be a big step. Start with small steps each day, a small victory of sitting together, reading together, breathing together for 3, 5, 7, 10, 15 minutes, and so on…There is no doubt that bringing mindfulness into your family life will strengthen relationships and bring the family closer. Practicing mindfulness will benefit your family’s life and it doesn’t have to be complicated.
