I have parents ask me what does their child(ren)'s behaviour have to do with their own wellbeing. One of the most important things as a parent is self-care, and self-care in the deepest sense of the word. Self-care allows us to be tuned into our own states of being as they have an impact on our resonance out to the people around us, and this also connects to our own self-regulation. When we are in higher states of wellbeing we are better able to manage the stresses in our life and around us. When we show up with more balance, with more inner resources and in deep harmony with ourselves, it is amazing how our external worlds take shape differently. I invite you to think about what would support you to have more balance in your life? How can you support more inner peace, is meditation or mindfulness practices the answer?
