Let Mindfulness Help With Your Parenting Stresses
You’re a parent who cares about your child’s well being so much you’re taking a course to help them with their anxiety. And you're learning how mindfulness can help them with self-confidence, empathy, creativity and other wonderful abilities.
Another powerful way you can help your child with their anxiety is to model self-care for them. When they see you taking care of yourself–like using mindfulness to help you feel less anxious or stressed or tired–it will tell them something really valuable .
So, parents are always on my mind when I create mindfulness resources for children. I want you to have resources, too.
Parent's Most Common Stressors
It won’t be news to you that these are the most common stressors I hear about from students with children.
The good news is, this also works in reverse. When you're able to physically rest, your thoughts become more settled and clear. When you create some space for yourself, you are automatically more responsive to others.
So when you bring more balance to any of the three parts of yourself, you will feel more balance and vitality in the others. Quite wonderful, actually.
