In a world where adults are constantly talking about their busy lives and getting worked up over all they have to do, it's no surprise that kids are starting to stress out at a younger age. Being calm, however, is an underrated and important trait. Calm adults that keep their cool not only seem to handle these things better, but also radiate that relaxed attitude in the direction of those around them. So how do you teach your little one to be calm? There are actually things you do everyday that'll make your baby calmer later in life.
It might seem like you're fighting a losing battle — trying to encourage your baby to adopt that same sense of calm that seems to be evading so many members of society — but it's worth it. According to Mind Body Green, calmness and mindfulness create so many lifelong benefits including improved social skills and more independent thinking. While practicing yoga or cultivating a meditation practice with your little one would, maybe hilariously, likely do the trick, there are some relatively simple things that you already do that will help your baby grow into a calm, cool, and collected adult. And if you're not doing them already, the following are easy enough to add into your routine.
