Class 301:  Live Life With Enthusiasm & Passion

It is so important to live life with enthusiasm and passion in all that we do, especially in our daily interactions with our children.  First, we need to consider if our own needs are being met.  How do we enjoy ourselves?  How do we reduce our own stress?  Do we spend enough time doing things that we enjoy?  Many parents become so involved in the lives of their children that they neglect to take care of themselves and each other.  There is so much to do and so little time.  Soccer practice, karate, the tutor, the therapist, religious education, homework, projects, school meetings, doctor appointments, just to name a few of the activities, can create an environment so busy that parents often forget to come up for air and refresh themselves.

In order to live life with enthusiasm and passion, we must take care of ourselves.  If not, we burn out.  Exercise, walk, meditate, take yoga, art, or martial arts classes.  These are a few ways to rejuvenate and refresh.  These practices will build up your emotional reserve so that you can be fully present with your children.
