Nov 30, 2021 | Mental Wellness, pandemic


It can feel selfish when the kids are wanting attention, but to support them you need to recharge too. This can be doing something as simple as a 5 minute SOS Immersive Meditation. SOS Method helps you connect to your superpowers, your Mind + Body Intelligence, to get inspired and create new solutions.

If finding this alone time is difficult, invite your kids! Establishing a “Recharge Time” is important for your state of mind and your kids’, as well.


Give yourself permission to not get it right all of the time. Explain to your kids that you can get frustrated, overwhelmed and sad, too, and that it’s OK and temporary. Make sure you show them how to release the tension by breathing in, powering up with a meditation and taking a break.


When unfocused, angry, or overwhelmed by frantic energy, the Stop, Drop & Roll tool is fantastic for both you and kids to release stress and get refocused .

DANCE: Play fun music and just dance.

SING: Sing at the top of your lungs until you feel like laughing.

WATER: Get in a tub, shower or pool. This helps to deactivate that excessive negative energy that makes you feel anxious or depressed.

WALK or RUN: Your body needs to move to reset. Breathe in the fresh air.

LISTEN: Listen to an SOS meditation to get your creativity flowing again.
