Most of the December holidays center around LIGHT. The lights of the season serve to brighten up the darker days, warm us when we feel chilly nights and bring a little twinkle to this reflective time. YoPlay Yoga For Kids “Shine Your Light” lesson plan celebrates the light inside of us and all the things that brighten our lives during this dark winter season.
“You are often tired, not because you’ve done too much, but because you’ve done too little of what sparks a light in you”.
-Alexander Den Heijer
Life is exhausting!
Career and marriage and family and friends. The responsibilities and to-do lists are infinite. We are tired people. Especially during this holly jolly season! Find the moments that bring pure joy, the simple, sweet moments that spark light. Hit that imaginary yet magical pause button, and be in the moment, don’t just survive it.
Where do you feel the happiest? What makes you the happiest? Who makes you the happiest? Now find a way to schedule more of that!
I have been finding my light in the simplest of places.
How incredible it is to be the girls’ mom, how far we have come how much we have learned together. Let’s stop teaching them that busy, exhausted and burnt out is a healthy norm. Let’s stop teaching them to hide their light. Instead, let’s let our light burn bright enough that they will feel its warmth. That they will know that living happily is not just a froo-froo fairytale idea, but a mindful practice of the moments or things that pull you away from your light.
Sneaking quiet moments together with my main squeeze. How important it is to stay connected to each other even in the midst of chaos. We stop, we talk, we listen, we support and we love each other.
The opportunity to share my passion for yoga with children around the world, knowing that they will gain the benefits of breath, flexibility, confidence, calm and health. Making these connections brings me such joy.
Find your light!
