Have you ever missed out because of procrastination or that thought, “I can never do _____.” Self-sabotage is a universal behavior, even for those of us who are high achievers in some areas.

Do you know that you are not to blame for your triggers and harmful reactions? Mark Wolynn, author of It Didn’t Start With You, explains how traumas and harmful patterns pass on from one generation to the next. We also talk about the power of mindfulness and other modalities to help us heal these hurts for good. Takeaways: By rejecting our parents, we share or repeat their life patterns. Trauma stays within families' genetic code, changing the way genes express. To transform trauma, we must practice the feelings & sensations of positive experiences. Mark Wolynn is Director of the Family Constellation Institute in San Francisco and the author of It Didn't Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle (Viking/Penguin), winner of the 2016 Nautilus Book Award in psychology.

When we respond to ourselves with harsh criticism and judgment, we leave ourselves feeling helpless and incapable. Even though it can feel strange, the practice of self-compassion is essential to becoming a more mindful parent. My guest today is Dr. Susan M. Pollak, author of Self-Compassion for Parents. Takeaways: We can tolerate failure better and have more resilience with self-compassion. 95% of us grow up with imperfect parents. “If you lose it, you can use it.” Susan M. Pollak, MTS, EdD, is a longtime student of meditation and yoga who has been integrating the practices of meditation into psychotherapy since the 1980s. Dr. Pollak is co-founder and teacher at the Center for Mindfulness and Compassion at Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Health Alliance. She is the author of the new book, Self-Compassion for Parents: Nurture Your Child by Caring for Yourself. Fan of the Mindful Mama Podcast?

What will the schedule be like? The only thing certain is that it will be different. Perhaps we need to broaden our definition of what it means to do school. Perhaps learning could travel outdoors? I talk to Megan Fitzgerald, co-founder of Tinkergarten, about how to support kids best in these times. Takeaways: Outdoors is a safer place for kids to be social and learn right now. We can set up our home environments to optimize independent play. We can teach kids to manage risks playfully. Meghan Fitzgerald alongside her husband, Brian founded Tinkergarten.

Wow i found that very informative. I should write the steps down because in the middle of and anxious episode you just forget what you are supposed to do. I have a question, you mentioned how feelings aren't because something is wrong you just have to fix them. But where do you draw the line what if something is actually wrong and instead of resolving the problem you just persist with calming exercises instead of facing your problem. How do you know if its just a feeling to be felt or theres something more to it that you are ignoring?
