Personally, I try to take some time to myself everyday to self-care and to practice mindfulness. It might not be as much time as I’d like (because having 3 children at home while I work is hard) but you have to take the time.
Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique. And being able to practice it makes you aware of your senses, thoughts, and feelings. It can help you control your temper, help your ability to focus and help your anxiety.
My 3-year-old Olivia loves to watch me when I do yoga or anything within the house. So, getting to practice mindfulness with Zafooz was exciting to her. She feels like they are stuffed animals she can snuggle up with but also cushions for her to be comfortable.
We were sent the Mindful Monkey and the Lotus Ladybug.
Lotus Ladybug is by far Olivia’s favorite: she does love ladybugs. But the lotus ladybug fits her: This Zafooz is ideal for the high spirited, highly sensitive child. The child who may tend to take on others energy along with his/her own. Like the Lotus this Zafooz may remind him/her that they should always be themselves no matter what their environment they come from.
I’ve gotten her to practice mindfulness with Zafooz twice without interruption. Because she is 3, it is hard for her to sit still for too long but it is more of a game to her. I’m happy she is able to learn to sit still and breathe with me.
Since Zafooz is a round seat, we’ve also been able to take them outside to sit. And they are easy to clean! That is one of my favorite parts. The cover is removable so you can wash it or just spot clean with a mild non-allergenic cleanser.
