When you see the words "find your feet" do you "feel" your feet differently than you did just a few seconds before landing on this sentence? Me too.

Mindfulness as a practice allows us to call attention to sensory experiences we don't orient to; things we experience on autopilot without tuning in. "Finding your feet" is a great verbal prompt for reminding yourself, and your kids to tune in, and be mindful.
