Saturday, June 9, 2018 marks Global Welness Day 💕
For anyone who knows me, I’m not a very emotional person. But this shit matters. Mental health is not something we can ignore. Know this – for every person trying to knock you down, there are 10 more incredible people who want to help you stand back up. Be authentic, and never be afraid to ask for help. You are not alone.
Feed your mind positive thoughts, nourish your body with healthy food and fun activities, and most of all, take the time to do what makes your soul happy! 😍
Kids like to see their parents happy. Crazy but true. Seeing you engaged in something that makes you happy is guaranteed to pique your child’s interest in that activity. The experience you have while doing an activity you love may be much different when your child joins you. It may take a longer amount of time to complete, it may not be as relaxing, and it may be frustrating at times. For me, it was all of the above. Once I let go of the idea of a traditional yoga practice and embraced the idea that yoga can be silly, it was much more enjoyable for my child and I. We make a lot of goofy animals noises, sometimes we fall off balance, and we don’t take our yoga practice too seriously. Most importantly, we laugh. A lot.
As a parent, you don’t just pass on genes to your children. Whether you want them to or not, your kids will pick up your good and bad habits. So make them good, all good, and teach your children some well-being habits that they can carry along with them long after you can carry them.
