Meus filhos não são exatamente agitados, brincam quietinhos, mas como toda criança "moderna", vivem expostos a muitas informações e estímulos, e andavam ansiosos (a pequena com dificuldade até para dormir). Foi quando ha uns 2 anos eu conheci a Lu Moreira @provocacoesdalu , que me deu umas dicas de meditação simples, mas que mudaram a dinâmica aqui de casa! #gratidao 🙏
Não consegue nem imaginar suas crianças sentadinhas de olhos fechados e completamente imóveis por mais de cinco segundos? Pois saiba que isso é possível. .
Claro que não é de um dia para o outro. A meditação infantil, assim como a prática dos adultos, é um aprendizado que exige treino. O exemplo é muito importante na hora de ensinar meditação para crianças. Faça você, e eles vão querer fazer também. FATO!
Os benefícios da meditação valem a pena para todos: redução da hiperatividade, melhoria no desempenho escolar, mais concentração e foco, menos estresse, nervosismo e ansiedade são apenas alguns deles. No fim das contas, melhora geral na saúde de toda a família!!!
Comece com 1 minuto. Vendo que as crianças conseguem se concentrar, vá aumentando o tempo de prática gradativamente.
Deborah Rozman, autora do livro Meditação para Crianças, dá 3 regras básicas para conseguir isso: "A primeira delas é que a criança não deve se sentir obrigada a praticá-la. A segunda é meditar por pouco tempo, alguns minutos apenas. As crianças se distraem muito. A terceira dica é que toda meditação deve seguir uma orientação de adultos, pelo menos no início."
Nos próximos posts vou dar algumas dicas de como eu inseri a meditação na rotina dos meus filhos. Nem todos os dias nós conseguimos colocar isso em prática, mas sentimos os benefícios diariamente, e por esta razão, quero muito compartilhar isso aqui com vocês. Se você conhece alguem com filhos pequenos (ou grandes) que pode se beneficiar de mais calma, concentração, menos estresse, nervosismo e ansiedade, marca essa pessoa aqui nos comentários!

Happy Easter everyone! Woke up this morning feeling grateful for everything that I have in my life and super excited for the future that I have going forward. God has a plan and at times I've questioned that more than anyone but I know I am blessed to be where I am with the amazing people I have in my life. I'm ready for the next chapter in my life.
“Yes, we are born with empathy, but it needs constant practice [to know] when to use it and when not to use it. So the dark sides are so important to know because they teach us that in some cases you shouldn't empathize.

“...mom always says, “Be Kind”...but what does it mean to be kind?” by Pat Zietlow Miller. Illustrated by Jen Hill
“...maybe I can only do small things. But my small things might join small things other people do. And together, they could grow into something BIG. So BIG that all our kindness would pour out of our school, spread throughout town, travel across the country, and go all the way around the world”. •
The above book needs no explanation other it is a lovely reminder that OUR simple kindness can have a HUGE impact on ourselves, on another, and on a whole lotta OTHERS. In the Harvard Medical School article called “the heart and science of kindness”, it reminds us to “Lead with compassion, follow with kindness: When we are compassionate, we are recognizing our SHARED human condition. Compassion can guide us to acts of kindness.” •
And the really awesome thing, is that our kids learn from OUR acts of kindness towards them and towards another. When we speak to THEM with kindness, treat THEM with kindness, our small and simple acts will teach THEM how to be kind. Kindness begets kindness after all, and this book is a GREAT reminder of that [kids and adults alike]. ———————————————————-

I try hard not to be illogical and project my past experiences onto my current one, but last night I lost sight of the fact that this new man in my life is nothing like any other man I have ever experienced. Even after months of getting to know him and the kind of honest and genuine person he is, I still managed to let those ghosts from relationships past unscrew the bolts in the door to my insecurities. .
I’ve always told him that if I ever actually have a problem that we need to address I will come to him about it, and it will never be a passive-aggressive post on here that will alert him to the issue, and that is exactly what I did. (So yeah, my posts are strictly just either funny or relatable for folks and in no way pertaining to my current relationship unless I specifically say that they are. That type of behavior shouldn’t be present in a healthy relationship, and I value and respect him far too much for that.) .
I was SO nervous. I thought, “What if I bring up the way I’m feeling about this issue, and I ruin everything between us? What if I try to talk to him about it and he becomes angry? What if he shuts me out and walks away for good?” I then countered those thoughts with, “There is no history between us that suggests he will respond in that way. I value what he and I have too much not to confront these feelings I’m having right now instead of letting them stew and boil over later.” .
So I did it. When he called, I immediately (calmly) told him how I was feeling and why. He’d had no idea. He felt broadsided, and my normally eloquent and articulate guy was having difficulty putting his words together in response. From my past experiences, this is the point at which a man would either blow up angrily or else just tell me, “Fuck off. Goodbye,” and I would spend the rest of the night crying myself to sleep and regretting that I ever called attention to the issue. What did THIS man do? He took some moments to think about how my words made him feel, and THEN he took moments to consider my own scars and baggage from previous relationships and he told me HE UNDERSTOOD MY FEELINGS, y’all! .

Are you happy?
Or are you just living an existence of what you were told happiness is?
When life is tough we begin to “chase” our happiness.
A new pair of shoes.
A new purse.
A new watch.
A new car.
A new house.
A new wife.
A new life.
We were programmed that these things will make us happy. They will fix everything. Only to obtain them and never being satisfied. Why?
Because Happiness is not a gathering process.
It is a giving process.
Yes, the things above mentioned do produce excitement and joy for a “blink of an eye” moment. But when that excitement wears off, we begin looking for next “fix”. Never being satisfied.
Happiness is something we can produce and sustain anywhere, and anytime. Once we learn what it really is. Instead of what we were programmed to believe.
The three main components to our happiness is simple.
1. Gratitude - Being grateful for everything in our life. For everything is a gift. We are owed absolutely nothing in living.
2. Compassion - There hardly anything else in the world more powerful than knowing that you can do something for someone else to brighten their day. Your true payment is the sustainable happiness these acts of kindness produce within.
3. Empathy - To truly understand others, you have to understand their story. What they are going through. How they see things through the filters they wear. Not by your perceptions or judgements. Not by assuming or interpreting. Really getting to know them and their story. Listen without judgement. Hold that space for them to be heard. Understand.
These are the main components to your sustainable happiness. These are within you waiting every moment to be given away. To produce that happiness we seek in life. That keeps us fulfilled even when life goes south.
These can be used at any given moment. Not just when things are going great. Indeed, when used when life is being harsh, these have the ability to change your energy.
Change your energy, change your world.
Share this in case someone you know is struggling or hurting and you just want them to be happy.

At some point, you have to realize that everyone thinks only of themselves. Everyone. At some point, you realize that other people are not really interested in personal sensitivities, problems, diseases, whatever your challenges are.
