We discuss 8 different ways to help your children be more mindful:

1. Mindful breathing
2. Past/present/future
3. Take in the joy
4. Quiet time
5. Practice listening
6. Emotional awareness – feeling – asking questions about feelings
7. Gratitude – don’t judge what they are grateful for – role model
8. Do it yourself

We also discuss the idea of creeping separateness.  This is when we “ignore the cracks” in a marriage.  The little things that are done (or sometimes not done) which create distance between couples.  We come up with a few practical ideas on how to fill those cracks.
