Since we are home from school, and we're guessing a lot of you listeners are too, we made an episode all about keeping a positive mindset while the schools are closed.Today's affirmations:I am safe at home with my familyI am full of good ideasI have no problem finding creative ways to spend my timeNow is the best time for me to learn new thingsI have helpers everywhere helping me and my family stay healthyWe’re in all this together and we are going to get through this.
What if instead of singing Happy Birthday each time we wash our hands, we sing a song that wishes ourselves and our world safety, health, peace, and kindness.We recorded a 20 second hand washing song to sing every time we wash our hands. This song was inspired by the ancient practice of loving kindness or metta meditation. There’s a lot of modern research that says loving kindness is a powerful tool that increases the well-being of both kids and adults.Special thanks to Kurt Gunn for the vocals and guitar. Check out Kurt Gunn at thank you to the children of Aldo Leopold Community School for the chorus.Enjoy and please share! Today's Affirmations:May I be safeMay I be healthyMay I be peacefulMay I be kindMay all be safeMay all be healthyMay all peacefulMay all be kind
