Free Mindfulness Apps Worthy of Your Attention

I have utilized the curriculum for working with youth from  Stop, Breathe, Think | Guided Meditation I recommended this for teachers of elementary through high school to sign up for free updates and how best to use the tools in class. They give a lifetime premium free account for TEACHERS! https://www.stopbreathethink.com/educators/

Love that!

Mind

Busy Bodies

I’m thinking about the conversation I had with a new yoga student about how I left a Type A life after watching many women going manic about making a perfectly perfect perception of their selves and lives. One thing that I had resembled and now resent is being busy. And granted I had small children and your mind is super busy with panic and decisions outside of your own needs, so that makes a ton of sense. Then, as my kids grew and I found myself volunteering for about 2 things for each school organization, scouts and HOA… I was like Whoa. I’m “b-u-s-y.” But then as time went on and tasks and check boxes and lists grew and grew, things got easier and I wasn’t busy – I was just committed. I hear this phrase all the time and I think those saying the B-word are reaching for appreciation and need a sense of value. You might be “dedicating” yourself to your career or going dead from it. I saw this article and thought – yes. Someone might get it and good for them!

Why I Stopped Being Busy

What’s so cool about mindfulness? A teen’s blog.

I was thinking to find out what this means to many different people and I came across a great blog for teens.

Teens shouldn’t be anxious, scared or feel threatened or numb to life – they just got their legs and many are needing a way to feel grounded and present.

I hope you share this blog with teens that have these mind-scattered feelings and could use some methods by teens for teens.
