Loved this piece on meditating with little ones. I haven’t been as successful at this as Kara is.
My daily, morning half-hour meditation is a must-do.
It’s the first priority as soon as I wake up, and whenever possible, I’ll get up and do it before my toddler is out of bed.
There are times though when he’s awake before me, and that means I meditate with him.
I’ve done this ever since he was a tiny baby – tiny enough to lie nestled on my lap, sleeping, while I meditated.
He out-grew that at about four months old, and now he’s quite happy to play around me while I do my practice.
There are a few tricks I’ve learned along the way that make the whole process smoother though, and that’s what I’m going to share with you now.
