I have been wanting to teach little kids yoga for years. Yesterday, I had my very first four-year-old yoga client and now I have a few more of them in the coming week.
Nothing Ive ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children. ~ Bill Cosby As a new mother, there is an undeniable intuitive knowing and connection between a mother and her child. Your baby is totally dependent on you and is comforted just by your energy, scent, heartbeat, and voice.
Conscious eating is about being aware of the things you are putting into your body. You want to eat a diet that FEEDS your body. So ask yourself is the food that I am putting in my body fueling me or is it feeding my emotions. A lot of times we eat to stuff down our feelings, comfort our anxiety or to fill a void in our lives. To better understand STRESS eating is to first to become aware of what you are doing, acknowledge when and why and then make a conscious effort to stop.
I saw the sweetest thing between a mother and a child once when I was visiting with an old client of mine. It was time for her daughter to go to sleep and the mother (my client) asked her daughter what story she wanted before bed. The little girl promptly replied, I want to hear the story about how I was born.” My client scooped her daughter in her arms and began to tell this amazing tale about how this fabulous little being came to be here.
There is that classic saying Dont take anything for granted because you never know what tomorrow holds . The other day I got an email from an old friend that I havent spoken to in years. He told me that he had an accident; he was walking across the street in London and got hit by a bus. He has been in and out of a coma, broke 50 + bones and now has some brain damage.
