Are you looking for a different way forward for family calm? To do things differently? Keeping it simple?

After a holiday there are always two issues – one is the thought of how to do things different or calmer in the next school holiday and the second is how to improve daily life to make it more balanced, calm and flow with positive ease.

Holidays are stressful, the Christmas one in particular – stress over what gifts, expectations, money, food, relatives, finance, how to fill the holidays and entertain the little ones. It’s almost a game of survival rather than  enjoyment sometimes.

What if you could do things differently – add one additional aspect to your family’s routine. In fact do one thing as your child sleeps to support their mindset and help resolve “issues” which affect them and the whole family.

Issues such as sibling rivalry, toddler tantrums, food/toilet issues, confidence, self-esteem, separation anxiety, sleep, anxiety/ worries and more…. SleepTalk(R) has been supporting children for over 30 years, following a tested script that you read to your child as they sleep. Making a positive impact on their mental, emotional and physical stability.

If your children played together and weren’t jealous, if they were able to go into school without crying or worrying about separation, if toddler tantrums reduced, if spectrum displays were reduced? How would that make you feel? Your child feel? What impact on your family?

Just for February I’m offering SleepTalk Program for £99, supported through a secret Facebook Group. You will access all the training videos and PDFs needed to get you started and I will support you through the journey.

You will have charts to measure where your child is now and the progress they make over the first 8 week.

Major positive changes are possible in 8 weeks, although longer term issues will take longer. The whole family benefits from the positive ripples of SleepTalk.

5th Day of Advent – 5th December

Well Christmas has arrived here – the tree is up and decorated. Tinsel is flowing down the staircase and festive pictures are up. Alongside this a few festive stresses are appearing, one of our elves has been sent home 🙁 – another blog will follow on this! Here’s day 5 of Advent

Advent countdown – DAY 5

 

Indoor Activity –  Air Drying Clay Decorations

Air drying clay decorations are fun and easy to make. You can get clay from hobby or art/ craft shops.

  • You’ll need some clay, some tools or cutters and afterwards some paint
  • Roll the clay out to a thickness of 1cm or less
  • Use the cutters to cut the shape out
  • Use a pencil or tools to add detail to the clay.
  • Make a hole in the clay near to the top so you can thread a ribbon through
  • Leave to dry  (often overnight)
  • Decorate with paint (acrylic paints are great)
  • Allow paint to dry overnight
  • You can cover with varnish afterwards once the paint is dry
  • Attach a ribbon, string or thread  through the hole  so you can hang on the Christmas tree or your twig from day one

Outdoor Activity – Walk and have a hot chocolate outside

Take a walk in the park or playground. See if you can find some pine cones as you’ll need these for activities later in the week.

If it’s raining look for another activity and pop this in the diary to do another day!

A great way to burn off some energy.

Take some snacks and make an afternoon of it (especially if you do a mini-beast hunt or treasure hunt or collage collection on the way back). Take a flask of hot chocolate and some mugs and some snacks (it’ll cool quickly in winter!)

Calm Activity – Breathing in Peace

  • Close your eyes and relax
  • As you breathe in imagine you are breathing in the colour blue. It can be any shade of blue, but a sky blue is a nice colour
  • See the colour blue filling you with calm and peace
  • Then on the out breath, visualize breathing out blue
  • Filling the room with a beautiful peaceful blue energy, an energy of peace and calm for you and your child(ren)
  • If you like you can repeat the affirmations “I am peace, I am calm”
  • Repeat this 10 times
  • As you do this, feel the loving, peaceful energy surround you both
  • Great to create a calm space for bed

Gratitude Exercise

 Don’t forget to spend a few minutes with your child and share something that you are grateful, glad about, enjoyed during that day.

Need some Calm for Christmas & Calming Ideas for Kids?

When the word Christmas is uttered for the first time we often all have a shudder down the spine! It’s not just the knowledge that the shops will be heaving with decorations, toys and chocolates or the fact that the children will be bouncing and creating endless wish lists for Santa. The real problem is the time of year it happens!

 

Hands up for October? Hands up for November? Any takers for September? Any summer takers? Come on own up!

 

The schools don’t help (especially when kids break up 10 days before the big event). They have to practice plays and carols so we often have those starting in November – winding the children up.

 

Do we in fact need a countdown advent calendar to the advent calendar itself I wonder sometimes?!!

 

Then think of the choices of toys, games and presents that children are tempted with. Plus the food, the drink, the tins of sweets, the chocolates and endless party food! The visiting relatives and on….

 

All the “shoulds” come into play as well – should go and see Santa, should see this relative, should buy x a present, should write 150 billion cards and post them, should, should, should….

 

It’s no wonder we begin to dread the C word being uttered. The stress it creates in our minds, emotions and bodies is palpable from its first utterance. It rarely disappears until “the” family events are over and you can crash at home under a sea of plastic toys with a nice sherry.

 

So this book is written with love to offer some support over this special time of year. A collation of things to do inside and out to occupy the family before the big day (without costing a fortune!), plus tools and tips to bring calm to points of the day and bedtime (although I can’t guarantee that they will work to help them sleep on Christmas Eve!).

 

From my festive heart to yours, remember only a few things are important:

 

– Presence is what kids need – they need you, you physically and mentally with them – the toy they crave won’t last as long as the memory of cuddles and fun with you.

– A tradition or memory can be as simple as making paper snowflakes, it doesn’t have to be a trip to Lapland. It’s something you do together, regularly every year.

– As your children grow older your relationship to Christmas will change. The sea of plastic and wrapping paper and 3am wakes will end. So enjoy the moment you have with your child now – for it truly is the only present you need.

– Take a photo everyday, as Christmas is more than just one day – especially with young children. Save your memories for them to remember in the future. Come and share on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/createfamilycalm)!

Enjoy your present Christmas, and if this book helps I’m even happier

Day 3 of Advent – 3rd December

Day 3 of December! Have your children eaten all the chocolate in the calendars? Ripped the toys out? Here are tips for today, 3rd day of December:

Remember you can order the book through Amazon on Prime/ next day OR Kindle (including Kindle unlimited) – £9.50

Advent Countdown

DAY 3

Indoor Activity – Paper Chains

 Time to get some coloured paper or old/ cheap Christmas paper (not the one Santa will use). You could decorate white paper with shapes or Christmas images and use this (fully homemade!)

  • Cut into strips about 2cm wide and 20cm long
  • Then either use a glue stick or sticky tape and join the two ends together to make the first loop
  • Thread the next strip through the loop and join the two ends together to make a chain
  • Keep going until your chain is long enough for your needs (across the window, mantelpiece room, up the stairs)
  • Attach to the ceiling/wall/furniture as desired

  

Outdoor Activity – Pebble

  • Find a pebble and decorate with a Christmas theme or characters
  • Cover with a varnish to protect it (clear nail polish or glitter nail polish works well)
  • Write something on the back and then go for a walk and hide it somewhere for someone to find.
  • On Facebook there is a local site called #shropshirerocks (most counties have them) so if you write this hashtag on the rock you can see if someone finds it and where it’s re-hidden or goes on its own travel

  

Calm Activity – Story Massage

 

Today we’re going to do “twinkle, twinkle little star” as a back massage. This is a technique called story massage and simply involves linking hand movements on the back and the words of the story.

Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star

 

Do finger patting all over head, shoulders and back Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star
Place hands on shoulders How I wonder what you are
Draw a circle on the back Up above the world so high
Draw a diamond on the back Like a diamond in the sky
Finger patting  all over head, shoulders and back Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star
Hands on shoulders again How I wonder what you are

 

This is a lovely thing to do with your child. Think of baby massage, it’s such a fabulous bonding tools as the feel good hormone cortisol is released for both mother and child – the same happens in story massage.

Once you’ve done it with your child then they might like to give you a massage too.

Ask your child if they’d like a massage before you start. Below is an idea, but do what feels natural for you.

 

Gratitude Exercise

Don’t forget to spend a few minutes with your child and share something that you are grateful, glad about, enjoyed during that day.

Day 2 of Advent – December 2nd

Here we are on day two – here is the daily information on

Advent Countdown

DAY TWO

Indoor Activity – Letter Santa

  • Letters have to be with Santa by the 8th Of December in order to get a free reply
  • Make sure your address and child’s name is clearly written.
  • Ensure address is clear on envelope and stamped
  • Remember to post the letter so it arrives before the 8th December
  • You will receive a free reply from the man himself

 

 

Address:

Santa/Father Christmas

Santa’s Grotto

Reindeerland

XM4 5HQ

 

Outdoor Activity – Bird Feeder

  • To make a cardboard bird feeder, cut a star out of corrugated cardboard
  • Make a hole and thread a ribbon to hang it from
  • Spread it with peanut butter and then sprinkle bird seeds over it
  • Hang in the garden for the birds to enjoy
  • You could pre-cut extra cardboard stars so they are quick to make and hang each day

 

Calm Activity – First Star Visualisation

 Close your eyes and lie comfortably, snuggle with a blanket to stay cosy. Imagine you are lying in the garden looking up at the sky. It’s beginning to go darker as the sun starts to set for the night. You are looking for the first star of the night so you can make a wish.

 

  • You notice the moon starting to come out, the light blue of the day changing to a deep indigo blue. You notice a twinkle up above you. Was that the first star? You scan across the skyline once more and are drawn to a slight twinkle. As you look at it, you realise that this is indeed the first star. As you watch the sparkle grow to be a bright white light, you make your wish. Say it to yourself now – as when you see the first star in the sky you can always make a wish. You look back up at the sky and notice other stars are beginning to appear now. You saw the first and made your wish.

 

  • Wiggle your toes, stretch your legs and wiggle your fingers. Then when you are ready open your eyes. I wonder if your wish will come true.

 

Gratitude Exercise

Each day spend a few minutes with your child and share something that you are grateful, glad about, enjoyed during that day. Try and share 3 things each. It can be cuddles, activity, food and more. Simple things are perfect – doesn’t have to be seeing Santa or buying a present.

Why is Visualisation/Meditation a Useful Tool for Children & their Wellbeing?

What is meditation?

It is a practice to focus and relax & calm the brain.It can be as simple as relaxing, closing your eyes and concentrating on your breathing for a few minutes (as the kettle boils).

What is visualisation and how does it differ from meditation?

Visualisation is doing meditation but focusing on building an image or visual experience in your mind. It focuses the chattering, untrained mind so is ideal for beginners or children. It also allows you to experience emotions during the relaxation. It is often a way to review situations and images and observe how we feel and react rather than suppressing the emotion  and holding onto it.

Benefits for Children:

  • The brain neurons form complex connections in different areas of the brain – neuroplasticity (brain is shaped through regular exercise)
  • Cortisol (stress hormone) is reduced in the body and so the stress response reduces and the relaxation response increases and occurs
  • Endorphins (feel good hormones) are released creating a positive feel for the child
  • Relaxation response occurs
  • Children feel revived, re-energised afterwards
  • Children able to more able to manage emotions
  • Create positive imaginative ideas within the visualisation

Meditations for Children

These can be simple breathing exercises, or breathing in colour (such as a calm, peaceful blue). My favourite is the toast and butter example below. Check out my webpage for more examples

What is Meditation and How does it Help Calm?

Girl meditating

WHAT IS MEDITATION?

Meditation is a practice to help focus and relax the mind.

During meditation we concentrate on our breathing, our thoughts are more focused and singular. Whilst in relaxation mode, our minds wander and thoughts are more daydream-like and unfocused.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION?

There are multiple benefits from meditation, from reducing stress, relaxation and detaching ourselves from issues of stress/issues at work and family.

  • Meditation will gradually improve our body’s power of concentration
  • Improved focus on concentration can help us in our daily tasks
  • It can support our detachment from daily issues and allow space to live in the moment and not worry about the future or dwell on the past; finding that space for calm or inner peace
  • Be able to detach from daily worries; this can help you change or review the perspective of situation
  • Self-discipline; as meditation is something you have to do and learn for yourself, taking time to practice
  • It can help balance the left and right side of the brain, relating to emotion and intellectual processing
  • It may strengthen the immune system
  • It has been shown to reduce pain sensations, muscular tension, regulate blood pressure, migraines/ headaches, anxiety attacks
  • It can build self-confidence, create positive attitude to life and boost energy

For Children the benefits are:

  • The brain neurons form complex connections in different areas of the brain – neuroplasticity (brain is shaped through regular exercise)
  • Cortisol (stress hormone) is reduced in the body and so the stress response reduces and the relaxation response increases and occurs
  • Endorphins (feel good hormones) are released creating a positive feel for the child
  • Relaxation response occurs
  • Children feel revived, re-energised afterwards
  • Children able to more able to manage emotions
  • Create positive imaginative ideas within the visualisation

The use of emotions within visualisation is very useful and important. It is often a way to review situations and images and observe how we feel and react rather than suppressing the emotion  and holding onto it. By allowing the feeling to come to the surface, you can acknowledge it and let it go, which then in the real life situation can help you change your reactions and move in a different direction.

Linking sight, sound and feeling together is more powerful than just seeing a picture alone. It can further the body into a relaxed state. Often people will have one sense stronger than another, so tagging into other senses can deepen their connection, whether hearing, smell, taste, feeling or sight.
