Building well-being practices in the routine part 1 – Aajol

Building well-being practices in the routine part 1

Wellbeing is unfortunately not built into today’s world experience. The pace and demands of life make it crucial that we build practices that orient us to our wellbeing in our daily routines. Many adults find themselves struggling with life and looking for ways to actively achieve wellbeing. Looking at the increasing need for actively seeking wellbeing in the coming future, how about building these wellbeing practices into our child’s routines?

How we spend the first hour in the morning sets the tone for the day. Can we integrate practices such as expressing gratitude, chanting Aum or any chant (chanting Aum is one of the ways we activate our Vagus nerve which has a calming effect among many other positive effects), going out, looking at the Sun and taking deep breaths, watering/ spending time with plants and so on? Can we avoid screens during that hour if not altogether?

How we spend our last hour in the night sets the tone for the night. Can we integrate practices such as expressing gratitude, remembering the activities of the entire day (this helps improve memory among other benefits), observing what the child liked about the day and what they didn’t like, chanting and so on? Can we avoid screens during that hour if not altogether?

Let’s empower our children with paths to wellbeing.
