It’s a new year! I am so excited to dive into 2018. Each year I set an intention or a theme for the year. Admittedly each year it is very self-involved. As such this year I have decided on the theme: BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING. I want to focus on how to live better, by giving more to others and ourselves, and seeking to cultivate wholeness; mind, body and soul.
This then got me thinking about how to translate this to the kids so that their education is also focused on wellness, gratitude and giving back. I decided on doing a weekly activity with the kids, which they want to call Weekly Wellness. This will be an activity that focuses on awakening a different aspect of their mind, body and soul.
It could be taking a hike through a nature reserve, visiting a children’s home, mediation, yoga or even having a yard sale. I am aiming to create different experiences for the kids that will hopefully push them out of their comfort zones, expose them to experiences they have not had before and ultimately to encourage a spirit of giving, gratitude and wholeness. I want gratitude, giving back and taking care our minds, bodies and souls to become part of the fabric of their lives. I will document this journey with the kids on my site and I hope you enjoy it and take your kids on this journey with us.
