Tend to The Children by Nina Sidell, M.A.

Considering the mental anguish and upset in our current society today with the Cornoavirus, we either tune-out or focus on how we feel and what can create. Depending on where you live and what your personal story is defines your reality. If you feel comfortable diving into what you need to grow and change, even if it’s a new thing, this is good news for you as a parent.

This growth-oriented mentality works as you experience and overcome aspects of your personal realm of reality. The decision to openly deal with the truth of your thoughts and feelings is essential. It must exist for your children, too. You are at the helm of your children’s world. As a parent, whether you live with your offspring or not- you are the leader. With a general attitude of growth and learning, moving forward, everyone can grow and get their emotional needs met.

Here are some things to be aware of to parent today:

  1. Notice what your children are saying and not saying (possibly showing).
  2. Be cognizant of your children’s mood and energy levels; be understanding.
  3. Listen to your children and invite healthy contact and resolution.
  4. Create and maintain healthy boundaries for appropriate personal space.
  5. Emotionally engage your children in daily ways to stay connected and display respect for one person to another.
  6. Maintain school/ learning time, creative self-expression and socialization regularly.
  7. Be affectionately demonstrative; ask your children what they need and listen to them.
  8. Everyone must feel safe, no matter what.
  9. Devise a system that works at home to encourage safety, communication, and respecting a variety of needs.
  10. Respect differences between family members, see each one as a special individual in their own right.
  11. Create a system that works for yourself and your children!
  12. Seek out professional help or assistance if needed. Whether or not you have needed it before, this is a monumentally challenging time.

Stay safe and take good care. Please see my recent video on YouTube and my two books. Reach out if you need therapy. I am here to help. www.LiveInspiredwithNina.com

“The practice of mindfulness coupled with self-compassion builds your resilience. You overcome stress and are more empowered.” Nina Sidell

Mindfulness is at the heart of effective coping and strategizing at home and at work. By increasing awareness and discovering neutrality, you develop greater self-compassion and resilience. I will be speaking at the Texas Librarians Association Fall Conference discussing this phenomenal and effective practice.

Practice Mindfulness

  • Awareness of Momentary Focus- “I am aware…”
  • Handle Feelings with Self-Compassion- “The only way out is through.”
  • 5- Minute Breathwork Builds Resiliency- “My breath keeps me calm.”

Some Types of Mindfulness:

  • Conscious, Intentional Thinking
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Mindfulness Meditation
  • Mindful Breathing
  • Mindful Eating
  • Body Scan and Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Health Benefits of Mindfulness: Practicing Mindfulness if Good for Your Health!

  • Self-Regulation (thoughts, emotions, actions) (respond vs. react)
  • Reduce Anxiety and Depression
  • Improved Sleep
  • Manage Stress
  • Improve Heart Rate and Blood Pressure
  • Better Eating Habits

You are Mindful when you are present in the moment, open to information and insight.

You are Self-Compassionate when you are kind and loving toward yourself no matter what.

You are Resilient when you thrive beyond difficulties or challenges, and learn to rise above.

 

Reach out to me if I can be of support to you, your family, company or organization. I am here to help~

Help and hope for the holidays~

Hello Subscribers!

I hope this note finds you well. I am reaching out to you before the holidays begin. We live in a chaotic and complex world that is reflected in inner and outer turmoil. I am here to provide safety from the stress of life as a viable solution. You deserve to be heard, express yourself, and learn empowering tools in a safe, supportive place as you release stress and overwhelm. If you want to, you can improve your mental, emotional and physical reactions thus building a better life and better relationships today.  I will help you build intentional self-compassion and “stand up tall inside yourself” as you continue your sacred life’s journey.

 

Life in general today mixed with the prospect of family time can bring up strife and unresolved dynamics. The media inundates us with reminders of the upcoming occasions, illustrated with joyous happy people. In reality, many emotions and expectations come up for many people during holiday times because they do not experience the picture perfect celebrations portrayed on TV. Life today for many people is not like an idyllic Norman Rockwell painting. “It is what it is” until you create a better way from this season on.

 

Please let me know if I can support you during this often richly complex and emotional season.  During transition and holiday time, people can feel particularly tense as finances, obligations, and interpersonal family issues can spike. Learn how to improve your self-care and mindfulness and let’s create an action plan to help you cope. This is an excellent and opportune time to explore a path of healing and forgiveness- for your relationship with others and yourself.

Feel free to schedule sessions with me to offer you understanding, resolution and fulfillment this holiday season.

 

Reach out to me at: Nina@LiveInspiredwithNina.com or call me at: 215-628-0282 and I will fit you into my schedule.

 

I am here to support you to live your best life,

Take good care,

Live Inspired! ®

You know what the holiday times do to you and to your family. You better than anyone can feel the undercurrents rattling and roaring in yourself, the world, and your environment. The question is: how present are you in the moment? How truly present are you with the ones you love, the ones who need your presence most? Your presence is required to respond appropriately to who you are interacting with. Your presence is required to guide you to talk and listen with the greatest calm, clarity and focus that you can with others. If you have a child or children, they need your loving, caring attention and connected presence, no matter what else is going on for you. When you are present within yourself, Continue Reading…
