Welcome to the second video of this shnazzy four part series on how the benefits from implementing simplicity principles into your child’s day can benefit you as well!
Today we’re exploring Pressure Valves! Ssssssssssss…
I’m not suggesting to chuck your child into the river and make them flail like I borderline sadistically do to myself; but a pressure valve can be as simple as a regrouping of the senses through a ritual like a moment of silence before a meal; an after school snack, or a candle before bedtime story. Consider too a pressure valve to allow excess energy to diffuse; a game of tag outside, a race to the mailbox or taking the dog for a walk
For mama other pressure valve ideas can include things like a cup of chamomile tea before bed, getting up early to soak in the morning silence of a sleeping house, cuddle session on the coach with the kids for a few moments in between dishes and pajama time.
Share in the comments one of your favorite pressure valves for yourself and one you have or plan to integrate for the kids to help create the ideal growing conditions for a peaceful transition to sleep and beyond.
