    Posted by Susan Winters on 12/3/2018

    In the season of "thinking of others", don't forget to add youself to that list.

    While the chilly days of Winter can feel confining,  this can also be a wonderful time to enjoy the small quiet moments that often build the largest memories.

    Following are some suggestions you can try ~

    1. Cuddle with warm blankets and a good book. 

    2. Enjoy slowly sipping some hot tea or hot coco while listening to rain.

    3. Bundle up and take a walk together and notice how the trees have changed for the season.

    4. Pull out some old photos and rejoice in the memories.

    5. Enjoy baking a favorite treat together. 

    6. Write a letter, a real letter, to someone special in your life.

    7. Take in a deep, slow breath. hold it.......exhale slowly.  Do this three more times. 

    8. Wear warm fuzzy socks.

    9. Each person write a favorite memory and then read aloud around the table. 

    10. Volunteer to help another- this can create wonderful memories and grows the heart of yourself and others.

    FAMILY KINDNESS IDEAS:

    1. Have a gratitude share daily-Every day at a designated time, have each person in the family share what they are grateful for in their day and eachother. ( When having a tough day, this can seem difficult, but the very act of brinnging ourselves back to the present moment and looking for the good, will calm the heart and mind).

    2. Role model being kind to others- our children are ALWAYS watching!  Kindness can include not only other people, but animls and our environment as well. Through watching us, our children will learn that everything is connected and one kind act leads to gratitude, appreciation and awareness. 

    3. Name feelings-If a a sibling or friend or even an adult is showing any sort of "big" emotion, name that emotion to your child.  "Your sister feels very angry right now", Or You seem sad right now". Naming emotions is a step in helping a child understand what they or another is feeling and when we understand what we are feeling, it is only then we can know how best to deal with it.
