Newsletter #2 January 28th, 2024

Updated: Jan 28

Snowstorms, freezing rain, and wind for days.

Welcome to the end of January and beginning of February.

We in the northeast are eagerly awaiting a warm day to feel like we can spend more time outdoors, and our indoor activities are feeling stale and overused.

What are some things you do to keep your mind and body moving during this time of deep winter?

Reading is a good way to feel active. Here are some books we are reading at Tamar Cares:

Tiny Humans, Big Emotions: How to Navigate Tantrums, Meltdowns, and Defiance to Raise Emotionally Intelligent Children, by Lauren Elizabeth Stauble, and Alyssa Blask Campbell

Olivia Forms a Band, by Ian Falconer

The Story of Philosophy, by Will Durant 

The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles by, Terry Wahls M.D., Eve Adamson

Here are some things we at Tamar Cares are currently doing to move our bodies:

Dance Parties. Put on your favorite music and dance. Move that body. Feel a release in just being joyful, by yourself, or with friends, or with family.

Obstacle courses: I take all the pillows, ribbon, yoga mats, whatever I feel like, and make an obstacle course for me and my toddler to do. You can keep it simple or make it complex. Keep in mind something for balance, something to climb, something to crawl under, and something to make you jump. 

A walk in the cold. Bundle up and brave the cold. Get a buddy so you can complain about the cold and be motivated to keep moving. 

Find an online workout or yoga class. There are so many these days to choose from. Just find one that is exciting to you and you like the way the instructor talks and makes you feel. Currently we are using Every Mother, Duello TV, and yoga with Marilyn .

We are also finding time to take a course or class to keep up our interests and skills.

Montessori Research and Development is hosting a week-long free conference for parents and teachers called The Childhood Potential. They are a great resource for understanding human development and giving some good ideas to inspire thoughtful practices while helping children to grow.

A Cognitive Behavior Therapy class on compassion and anxiety. 

Studying math to keep up your reasoning skills and keep your mind sharp. We are using

We hope you continue to enjoy the winter.
