The one wellness activity Robi thinks every mom and family should be doing right now is morning meditation. The simple act of coming together as a family in a moment of silence and calm can bond a family in immeasurable ways, he said.
How do you it?
Gather the family after breakfast (so hunger doesn’t distract the kids or you), sit in a comfortable spot where you feel relaxed, close your eyes and focus on your breath, Robi suggests.
Even just two minutes a day can help to lower stress, improve focus, reduce anxiety and enhance self-awareness. Try this new activity and take note of the changes you start to see in your family and yourself.
