**Spend some time everyday in green spaces.
Research shows 20 minutes in nature can lower stress hormones! Get the whole family outside with a walk, hike or bike ride.
**Practicing Mindfulness for 2 weeks can rewire the way your brain reacts to stress.
Studies have found that after doing mindfulness exercises like meditation and deep breathing for 20 minutes a day, people had lower blood pressure, while performing a stressful task.
** Teach your children deep breathing and positive visualization as calming down tools that they can use before falling asleep and also during “calm down time” – ie: “time out” to get in touch with feelings and possibly consider an apology.
** Learn EFT (emotional Freedom Technique), tapping and teach to children old enough to learn it or simply tap on them.
