For the next 7 days, Peace at Home Parenting will be posting a theme idea for each day of the week. Today's theme is:
Move It Monday
Get your family moving today! In the morning, you might consider taking 2-5 minutes to do some yoga and stretching together. Moments of mindfulness will help you refuel and can set the tone for a calm start of your day. We recommend this guided yoga activity for kids, which is available on Spotify: Kira Willey - Dance for the Sun.
Between tasks and schoolwork, you could have a dance party or move in some other way. Check out GoNoodle.com for short, interactive videos and activities to get kids moving. And at the end of the day, get the whole family moving together. Do a family workout, go for a walk, or play something physical.
Kids may want to do some of these “Move It Monday” activities every day and that’s great! Regular movement on a school/workday can reduce stress and increase productivity for both kids and grownups.
