When was the last time you stopped to think about your breathing? We take it for granted everyday. What if I told you that if you just took 5-10 minutes everyday to focus on your breathing, your overwhelm would drastically change? Give it a try!
Choose a video from my YouTube channels Blue Sky Kids Yoga or Tanya Milano Snell. Do the same one everyday or mix it up!
For me, a breathing (pranayama) session is often the best choice when I need an almost-immediate result. Whether I need to calm my nervous system or a quick boost of energy, there's a breathing pattern that will help, and usually just a few rounds does the trick. Long term, the practice can help with all sorts of things, including anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, improved focus, and, of course increased self-awareness.

Here are a few people that expressed WHY they wanted to do a 7 day yoga challenge and HOW it helped them focus on self care again!
I am hoping to get some more stretching in to help with my stiff body (especially my lower back). It has been almost 8 years since i practiced yoga (before having kids). Specifically i want to work on 1 and 2; increase flexibility and gain muscle strength. Thanks for doing this! -Alia
Appreciated today’s affirmation - much needed as I’ve fought some severe anxiety over the last few days... looking forward to tomorrow! -Holly
"Definitely need this after a long day...have to remind myself to breathe during some of the stretches but it feels great! Ready for tomorrow!" -Jessica
My sacred space for today is a corner of my bedroom I have refallen in love with, since sprucing it up while getting our house ready for the market.
"I'm doing midnight yoga here, because quarantine life!" --Judy
"Today was challenging, but I persisted. Work was crazy, the kids had their own things going on. I took a few minutes for myself and let go of the weight I was feeling. Thank you for this challenge!" -Kallie
I have put my physical health so far in the back-burner since we transitioned to elearning for the kids and teleworking for us. This week, in addition to this 7 week challenge, we are trying to set up a schedule to include more workouts in our week. This yoga challenge is a great way to wind down my day. -Judy
"When thinking about my intention and being centered, I can and should be taking control of my time in a way that helps me feel and be more healthy. I struggle with this because I am a giver - I give to my kids, my husband, my job, etc. Being home has actually required me to give even more, in that I don't have the help of sitters and family." -Kallie
"This challenge has helped me take control of self-care while letting go of what I think it "should" look like. Yoga in my bedroom with a three year old climbing on me still counts. I still expressed my need to do this for myself. I still showed up." -Kallie

Here is an article about how hugs will improve your relationships with the family. Connection before correction is a huge part of our parenting philosophy. I notice that when we are not connecting with our children in meaningful ways, the negative behaviors start to emerge more frequently.
Earth Day EVERYDAY!
When we feel grateful for our own lives and the body that we have, that gratitude can be felt by everyone that you come in contact with. It has to be cultivated within the family and practiced internally for the Family Mindset to transform. Let's heal the world bY starting with our own family.
"Be the Change you Wish to See in the World"
I love myself, I love the world

Invitations to play
Gratitude Jar: An 'Attitude of Gratitude' takes practice and routine. Introduce this at a family meal. We keep a special jar, paper, and pens near our dining room table so we can visit this often. Our family has a tradition to read the entire year's gratitude slips on January 1st as we say goodbye to the old and invite the New Year. It's amazing to see just all that we've accomplished as a family in one year the extraordinary and the mundane!
Scavenger Hunts: Set out a basket with the Scavenger hunt, clipboards, and maybe some special writing utensils. This makes it inviting and a little bit novel seeing special items. You can also choose a special route to take.
