Do you start the day with gratitude and a sense of calm and confidence? That is my daily objective and what I share with the precious clients that I work with. A mental expression of gratitude upon waking sets the tone for your day. A choice to be calm and confident, so that you can address events as they come your way is empowering.
Then, your kids wake up!
Are all attempts at peace and presence lost? Could be. It's up to you.
Your reaction makes all the difference.
Can you choose to respond to your child, rather than react? Can you calm the frustration and anxiety that is building in you as you rush through your morning? There are tools to get to this place of calm.
Try stepping out of the room and do some conscious breathing for starters. Then leave "reaction" behind and choose to respond.
