Ep. 12 – 5 Ways to Mindful Parenting

Have you ever had this happen to you? You're spending time with your kids when all of a sudden, almost unexpectedly, it looks like all hell broke loose and everything's just a screaming heap of emotions? I know that feeling too well.

But what if there was something you could do to help you prevent such fallouts? I'm not talking about any magic spell or something that will instantly work like Mary Poppins snapping her fingers. I'm talking about a skill that you can practice and will help you see those storms coming and navigate through them. I'm talking about mindfulness.

In this episode I'll explain how mindfulness can help you be a better parents, but more than that – I'll teach you 5 simple ways you can incorporate minduflness into you life, starting today, and with only 5-10 minutes a day.
