Focus on "ME" Workshops

Mindfulness Exercises = ME

We're all human and our emotions get the best of us.

In order to apply the Accountability Pyramid mindsets in every day parenting, it is critical that we each take the time to practice daily personal mindfulness. Just like our muscles get bigger and stronger when we use them, so will our brains increase in capacity through training, stretching, and exercise.

The following mindfulness exercises, or Focus on ME Challenges, can be used in any order or during any stage of the Accountability Pyramid. They include thought-provoking ideas and practical tips designed to open your mind and heart to reflection and stretch your magnitude for awareness, appreciation, and acceptance of the present moment. With a daily focus on mindfulness exercises (ME), your prefrontal cortex will increase in its ability to endure challenging moments with your child and wisely guide them on their own path to brain balance and mindfulness. So pick one and get to work on yourself!
