    < Raising children within the structure of our busy lifestyles can be a challenge. Not only do we juggle many roles and responsibilities, but so do our children. More than ever, kids are faced with more opportunities and also more distractions.Considering that children are now learning how to swipe before learning how to read or write, we as adults have a lot to think about.

    While there are certainly many benefits to living in the information age, growing up is much different than it was even just twenty years ago. There's less time spent outdoors, so much to manage within daily living, and food has turned into something fast and highly processed. As adults, we have an obligation to help the next generation develop in a way that brings out the most health and happiness possible.

    Mindfulness is one of the most beneficial techniques and traits that we can work on enhancing in our children.

    What is mindfulness?

    < According to Psychology Today, mindfulness is ''a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.''
