How to: Create Mindfulness Moments at Home


What if every text, email ding, social media notification, and news alert called us to mindfulness? Just like we put on reminders to take our laundry or kitchen timers, we can also use  mindfulness reminders. These mindfulness for families reminders can help both you and your kids pause and take in what is happening both around and in your mind + body.

Parents who can name their present challenge and not blame themselves or others are more likely to have a healthier mindset and a smoother parent-child relationship.
