our brains are a bit like trees
If there are good nutrients in the soil, a tree will grow a strong root system, trunk and branches. It will develop leaves and become an active part of the ecosystem, helping support other life. Our kids' brains are the same way!
The “roots” of the brain are the systems that feed the whole body. Science tells us that in order to have a strong root system and a happy, healthy brain, we need one thing: mindful awareness of self and others.
To develop a happy, healthy life and strong root system of mindful awareness and connection to ourselves and others we need courage, creativity, gratitude, kindfulness, respect, responsibility, growth mindset and healthy living to boots brains and feed the root system of wellbeing and growth.
You can also get access to The Rooted Family programming online, so parents and caregivers anywhere can give the kids in their lives access to what it takes to grow their own strong roots!
