A new season is a great time to think about goals and intentions. Try this Mindful Moment with your kids, and maybe it becomes a sweet part of your morning routine. It’s a simple way to set a positive tone for your day. Everyone in the family can pick a word, and talk about what you choose—you can also revisit it at the end of the day.
TODAY I’M GOING TO BE…
Take a long breath in, let it all the way out, and hold your body still.
Think about how you want the rest of your day to go.
Pick a good word to finish this sentence in your mind: “Today, I’m going to be…”
Maybe you finish it with “friendly,” or “kind,” or “helpful.”
Choose a positive word that you like to finish the sentence.
When you pick your word, if you want to, tell a grownup about it.
Remember your word, and do your best to make it happen!
