Reviving a LOST Tradition to “Nourish” Our Kids’ Body, Mind & Spirit

It’s easy to get “caught” up in life and miss the important stuff!

Our kids are SO little for such a short time and the start they have in life means EVERYTHING!

It’s when their beliefs are being created from “what” they live, the foundation of their health is being built and they are learning the most important stuff, the stuff they take into the REST of their lives…

We’ve got such a powerful opportunity to step up and do the best job possible with the BIG picture in mind…

Reviving a LOST Tradition...

With “stress” such a growing health concern and predicted to skyrocket, our kids are in for a rough ride.

It’s up to us to teach them the self-soothing tools they need to navigate life’s inherent ups and downs. Self-soothing is a critical skill for managing our emotional well-being and they aren’t getting taught this at school and rarely at home because WE weren’t taught ourselves…

Self-soothing means tackling the “challenges” in a way that acknowledges and allows the safe and responsible expression of our feelings and emotions which empowers our future journey, allows us to learn a lesson, to feel ok about ourselves and to keep moving forward on purpose with our self esteem and self worth in tact!

Whilst I wholeheartedly advocate us becoming MORE educated and empowered with “life-skills” as parents and stepping up and into greater personal awareness in order to teach our children, the easiest place to start, where QUICK results will flow, is with some mindfulness.

Our kids DON’T need more GO, they need more STOP! Mindful stop…

I think we should revive the LOST tradition of a tea break! A dedicated moment in the day where we stop, make a brew that speaks to our need to “relax” our nervous systems and nurture our physical health, as well as our emotional well-being through the “brew” AND connecting with a loved one…

Many cultures around the world have traditional practices that either deliberately or inadvertently address this issue, take the Fika for example!

This is the traditional Swedish practice of having a “cuppa” and a break, usually with someone to unplug and recharge…

If we take the time to have a “tea break” with our kids, we can teach them on many levels but the one that will have profound consequences for both us and our kids, is present moment connection.

We can’t underestimate the pure gift that spending time, fully committed to our children, truly is!

This practice can build relationships whilst restoring the health of body, mind and spirit!

Check out the video above and get “brewing” in your kitchen and ENJOY quality time with your kids to “unplug” together…
