Mom Guilt: Sometimes we project out our fears and wounds onto our kids assuming they will feel the way we did as kids.
Parenting is all about creating an environment where your children can blossom according to your family’s core values.
Pause to evaluate your child’s need in that moment, so you can intentionally make a decision for your child based on that instead of a fear/anxiety.
Create a physical environment that makes your family feel loved and nurtured.
Plants, can lift your mood and clean your air.
Snake plant for clean air.
Minimalism/essentialism: getting rid of whatever is not serving a purpose currently. It makes cleaning so much easier and allows you to make more time for what matters to you.
Book: Essentialism by Greg McKeown
Making intentional choices allows you more peacefully accept the results of how you chose to spend your time.
What is essential to you and your family?
What kind of environment do you want to create to emotionally nurture your family?
A couple ways we create an environment for our families to foster emotional health:
Being available can be a great way to foster a feeling of love and security within a family unit.
Choose presence. Choose engaging your family over efficiency in tasks.
Consistently making time for dates and family quality time.
Finding daily time to connect with your partner, even if its only 15 minutes a day.
