Are you caught up in the frenzy of day to day modern life?
Are you busy, rushed, hurried and lacking time?
How much time do you spend with your kids?
How much time do your children spend away from you?
As the year 2017 is coming to an end, I invite you to rethink your priorities. This is a good time to pause and set new intentions for the coming year.
How do you want to spend your days? Where does your attention go?
We move through scenes like ghosts, without fully experiencing the moments and the events. We are rushing from place to place, constantly doing something...
Children are overbooked and over scheduled.
But the truth of the matter is we need to rethink our priorities, we need to change our lifestyle, we need to slow down, we need to have ample time for for children to play freely. We need to provide time and space for our children to decompress, experience downtime and just be bored. Bored is the gateway to creativity. Not only our children do not have time and space to be bored but they not have time for daydreaming, processing what has happened to them during the day.

7 Things You Should Do Every Day with Your Kids inforgraphic
It is the most shared and commented post I have ever created in social media. Why? Because it resonated with everyone. We all know what’s true and what we need to do deep inside but somehow we get caught up in the frenzy of day to day life and get disconnected form our values, from our children and from ourselves.
Holiday season is another hectic time but I am sending this message to you and inviting you to reconnect with what’s important. To open space in your life, let your children be free, and play, spend time outdoors even if it’s cold. stop the madness, stop the doing and just be...And if you are having a hard time...ponder upon this question:
What are you avoiding by keeping busy?
Curious how much time you spend on your phone? Where does your attention go? How many times per day you pick up your phone or check your email?
