Autumn Mindfulness Hunt

Autumn Mindfulness Hunt

Autumn is a great time for nature walks. There’s so much to see, feel and hear – the crisp air, leaves changing colors, the earthy smells. It’s easy to get distracted and lost in your thoughts on a nature walk, so sometimes we need to bring intention to our walks. Intention to stay mindful and present in the moment. We can also find ways to connect nature to our mindfulness walks.

As the winter days wind down and the spring weather approaches, many come out of hibernation. The spring season is often a time for children to play outside, participate in outdoor sports, and just enjoy the feeling of being outside in the fresh air. However, during this warm and bright season, it can also be a time of anxiety for children – standardized testing, midterms, and school is coming to an end soon. Practicing yoga and taking time for mindful activities can help combat the stressors of anxiety.

Learning in Different Ways Is NOT a Failure

I saw children participating. Moving without fear of mockery. My husband reflected on it saying how free they looked. They didn’t seem self conscious at all. As a juxtaposition he noticed the parents walking about the festival. He pointed out that the parents were rushing, stressed, and facing the all too real financial constraints of life, having to say no the children’s many (many many many) requests for them to buy books.

 

The 5 Breath Space Maker

The 5 Breath Space Maker

As the founder of F&G, as well as a yogi and mindfulness practitioner and proponent, I try to hold myself accountable. Taking a few moments to integrate yoga and mindfulness practices into my daily life has made it qualitatively better. The following is a short excerpt from my mindfulness diary for you to learn about a practice we do in my house called The 5 Breath Space Maker.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

A priority is something that is of utmost importance. When we are clear about our priorities, we can spend our time and energy working toward them. The behaviors we initiate based on these values will help our actions match what is in our hearts. We want classrooms, yoga classes, teams, families, groups and individuals to try out our priorities activity to get their priorities clear. That way in 2017 we are becoming what we believe in and making the world better in the meantime.
