The month of September is special at Brooksfield School here in McLean, VA. We begin a new year at our Montessori school and have so many new friends and families that have joined us for a Mindful Year. New friendships are budding on the playground. Excitement is in the air and so is PEACE!
International Day of Peace
The International Day of Peace was celebrated at our school last week and our children will now learn about personal peace in the practice of Mindful Meditation. Give yourself permission today to sit for just one minute with your eyes closed, allowing your attention to go to your breath. Breathe in slowly and relax with an exhale.
For just 60 seconds allow your mind to unplug from all the many distractions of your day and simply, BE. As you try to put this practice into your day, remember that in a heated moment, taking the time to pause and breathe can prevent an argument from erupting. You can avoid reacting out of impulse or from a negative emotion. Other choices will have the time to surface.
Join us and be an active member of our Mindful Community! Your children will appreciate it!
