This week we had the privilege of interviewing Lindsay McCarthy, co-author of Miracle Morning for Parents and Families. We talked about the different elements of a “Miracle Morning” and how they can help improve your life each day.
To have a miracle morning you should wake up earlier than your normal time and do S.A.V.E.R.S. These include time for Silence, Affirmations, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, and Scribing. Each of these give you time for meditation, goal setting, self improvement, and focus.
After starting to practice miracle mornings Lindsay involved her two children. They renamed the practice C.H.A.R.M.S for her children. This includes Creativity, Heath, Affirmations, Reading, Meditation, and Services. She has made this a daily expectation in her home for the children, herself, and her husband.
In the book she also shares some parents skills. One that we discussed was being more playful with your kids. She encourages us to take time to play whatever they want to play; really focus on the child without distraction.
MOM SQUAD CHALLENGE: Lindsay encouraged us all to try to have a “Miracle Morning.” It counts even if we just start with just one of the S.A.V.E.R.S each day, or do each one for one minute.
