Three Simple Ways to Keep Calm in The Storm: A Helpful Tool For Handling Crying, Whining, Tantrums and Fights.

ImageFind your feet, find your breath, find you light. Repeat it with me: “find my feet, find my breath, find my light.”

1. Find your feet – Imagine roots growing deep down into the earth from your toes, heals, arch, everywhere.

2. Find your breath -Now, find your breath and keep it soft and deep.

3: Find your light – Find the soft spot in your heart and imagine a ball of warm light growing to fill every space in the room with its warmth. Your chest opens, your shoulders relax and you feel as if wings are growing from this light.

These are 3 of many exercises I learned in Waldorf Teacher Training. I found that once I forgot most of them, these were the 3 that I always come back to. When everyone is screaming at me and I feel trapped in the emotional turmoil, taking 30 seconds to do this frees me and I am once again a successful mother.

Optional 4: Ask God for help If not God, then Mother Earth, Angels, or the Collected Human Consciousness. If you believe in spiritual helpers, use them; they are always here to help you, you need only ask.
