September is rapidly approaching. I am already envisioning a very busy fall coordinating my children’s school activities, after school activities and my work schedule. It is a good thing that I know some tools of mindfulness and yoga to keep myself focused and in a happy mood. This cartoon above comes from the Boston Globe. To me it is a reminder to stay in the present – NOW.
This is a great challenge in today’s fast paced world. Technology like smart phones, ipads and texting accelerate our communication and create a lot of distraction for us and our children.
Mindfulness and Yoga are two tools that allow me to take a few breath, settle my mind and stay focused with the task at hand.
The next time you or your children find yourselves spinning into chaos. Try slowly breathing in for 5 seconds and slowly breathing out for 5 seconds several times – Take Five.
