You’re struggling with recent changes to your routine.
As much as you’re encouraged to see the positive and find the opportunities in the situation. It’s difficult when you’re still trying to feel grounded.
It’s even harder when you are raising a child who is looking to you to help them feel safe during such an unpredictable time.
One step you can take is to start each day with a grounding activity.
Grounding simply refers to an activity that brings you into the present moment.
✔️ You can scan your body from head to toe and stop to wiggle any part of your body that needs to release stress (ages 2+ 😉)
✔️ While sitting you can push your feet into the ground. Just hard enough to almost start standing up. This is helpful for folks who need to release tension while having to sit.
✔️ Tensing and releasing hands, arms, torso, legs helps too.
It’s important to educate yourself and your child in how to use your body to calm itself.
Your body is the one resource you always have with you.
