most important tool

I have written about this before and I will write about it again.  Not only because it is wonderful, but also because I need reminders.

Breathing is the most important parenting tool.

I read a while back about meditating and parenting and I almost forgot about it since I couldn’t meditate before I had kids, much less afterwards.

But this is brilliant.  It is easy.  It is a lifesaver. 

Do this once a day:

Breathe in to the count of seven.  Hold for the count of seven.  Breathe out to the count of seven.
Do this seven times. 

I haven’t been able to hold my breath, but even without that part, I feel a huge difference. 

Soon, I may be able to master even that.
