Recharge during the holiday season without having to buy anything

On the herbal tea bag instructions it says, ” Pour boiling water over tea bag in a cup and steep for 3 to 5 minutes.”

That’s pretty much what happens around this time to us. We find ourselves being that tea bag in hot water steeping in all things holiday with work, family and children.

Follow me in this special episode of Raising Playful Tots as we take a moment out of the swirl of Christmas and Holiday activities. Come to a place that’s relaxed, slow and nature inspired to reconnect to your families reason for the season. Take a pause in your day, plug in while you shop, during lunch when you need that break. Hear a few stories, conversations and encouragement  as you move through your day.

 

Breathe…

How are you finding time to be grounded during this holiday season?

5 Approaches When Becoming an Intentional Family

Becoming an intentional family

When we look at our first sweet baby we have the highest intentions for our family. Fast forward a few years and a lifetime of experiences our intentions have wavered. We’re doing more of something we thought originally we wouldn’t do. We’re on a path that we’re not happy with.

Today we’re taking small steps and deliberate decisions so we parent on purpose. Finding our way as a family and keeping agile, modifying our systems to suit our ever changing situations instead of rooted and bound to one system we once tried.

There’s that tool, phrase, system or habit you’ve read about but how can you find a way for this to happen in your family?

Wouldn’t it be good to have some clear steps to help you become the intentional family you want?

Judgement free place where you can explore what’s working, what’s not and what you want? Imagine becoming a more intentional family. Parenting on purpose

Listen in to the conversation about becoming an intentional family and how try a few of these ideas. I’m sharing how we’ve stumbled in this area recently and how we’ve found a way to work on a troublesome area more intentionally.

An easy way to practice Appreciation in your family

An easy way to practice appreciation in your family

 

Focusing on the good stuff. If we want more good to happen we have to make good the priority.

It’s the light at the end of the tunnel that helps us persevere.

It’s the rainbow on a stormy day.

It’s the smile that changes the mood.

All the things that aren’t working really well are right there on the tips of our fingers and ready to bubble over. When the kids get angry and frustrated it’s hard to work with them in this state. They need to be calmer.

Wouldn’t it be good to have a written reminder of your awesomeness when you’re feeling less than awesome? Imagine that the awesomeness comes from your family ( and they really mean it!)

Listen in to the conversation about Appreciation boards and how they encourage writing +  saying how grateful we are for each member of the family- an awesome addition to our homes. ( I just loved the alliteration to death didn’t I!?)

Do you have an appreciation board?
