Join us for Tea
Being a parent can be hard, we at Kinder Buddies Oakville Daycare know how hard our parents work for their kids. While it can be difficult to find time to wind down it is important to take some time for yourself! In honour of our dedicated mothers Kinder Buddies will be having our Mothers Day Tea at the daycare. Please take a moment to relax with us and enjoy some tea, juice, fruit, and baked treats.
While sitting down and having a nice cup of tea is a great way to relax here are some other fun relaxation techniques to take advantage of this Mother’s Day!
Breathe In Breathe Out
Meditation is one of the best ways to relax. Meditation can reduce stress, improve concentration, and improve over all well being. You can start with just 5 minutes a day! Here are some ways to meditate:
- Guided Meditation – You can follow a verbally guided meditation found on youtube or an app on your phone
- Controlled Breathing – Set an alarm for 5 minutes. Breathe in for 3 and exhale for 3 seconds. Close your eyes and concentrate solely on your breathing.
- Read a Poem – Find a short poem or even a book of daily inspirations and slowly concentrate on the words and the meaning.
Meditation does not need to be a solitary exercise. Children benefit just as much from a short meditation. If you can have your child sit with you and go through the meditation together.
Get up and Move
While exercise can be physically exhausting it can improve your overall mental and physical health as well as give you more energy long term! Take a half hour and try out some at home exercises on youtube. A great exercise that helps with relaxation and stretching is Yoga!
Much like meditation, Yoga has many benefits for children as well. Here at Kinder Buddies we host a Yoga Activity for children from 2 and a half to 5 and a half. Maybe even get some tips from your little one!
Bust a Move
When all else fails it’s incredibly easy to turn on your favourite song and dance it out. Music/dancing/singing are all great ways to relieve stress and to take a break. In the privacy of your own home your performance doesn’t need to be polished, just fun.
Kinder Buddies wishes all our Mothers a happy and relaxing Mother’s Day weekend!
