Miracle Mornings – Guest Lindsay McCarthy. Episode 9

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.

  1. I am enjoying listening to your podcasts while I’m working in my classroom. The idea of Miracle Mornings is hard for me because I am an extreme night owl, but I need to change that because extreme of anything is really no good. I appreciated her suggestion of starting small – 6 minute morning – with a minute for each one. Thank you!
