Do you ever feel that there is so much coming at you that you start going in circles (either metaphorically or in my case physically)? Of course you do! You’re parents! Instead of standing in the middle of the room and screaming, which is my first reaction, I am learning to breathe deeply and check in with my shoulders (which at this point are nearly where my ears are from tension). In class, we also on occasion, practice deep breathing and shoulder relaxation. Everything, including music, is better when we are relaxed, calm and happy.
We are headed to Disneyland on Thursday for music and fun! Reach out to Yvonne Lim if you would like to chaperone.
Have a calm, happy week!
