On Being Mindful

We are all feeling it. I've heard from so many folks this week that after a week of a new routine, it really has started to hit home for adults and kids alike that this is not going to be over quickly. The stress is intense, and the restless energy is building. 

If you haven't already, this would be a great time to focus on mindfulness, a technique focused on living in the present moment with intention and acceptance. As we cope with building anxiety, worry, and grief for our changing world, there's no better time than now to help your young ones learn some lifelong tools for healthier living, mentally and physically. 

Here's a collection of books, guides and read alouds to help:
