Miracle Morning with Kids

We’ve been getting asked almost daily on our Facebook posts what exactly this Miracle Morning is that we are doing in our lives but more importantly with our kids.  The Miracle morning is a routine that we learned from the book, believe it or not, called The Miracle Morning.  You can hop on Amazon and order it.  There are a couple different versions of the book but the one that we read is this one.   The Miracle Morning with kids routine that we do is based off of what you can see in the image below referenced as S.A.V.E.R.S.

You spend however many minute you feel needed to focus on these 6 areas.

Silence

Affirmations

Visualization

Exercize

Reading

Scribing

So what we do in our Miracle Morning with Kids is spend only about 5-7 minutes.  We first start with 20 Jumping Jacks which is from the exercize category.  After we do that we go into the backyard and they stand on one of our landscaping rocks and they stretch and stand their in silence.  We tell them to think about their goals.  This takes care of the visualization and the Silence category.  Next we have them read a paragraph from one of their books. Here is a blog post of some books they have read.  Next they have a little journal on our piano and they write out something that they are grateful for. This is their Scribing. The final thing is we go to the door and their is a quote or affirmations on the wall and they read it out loud with us.  This is their affirmations.  The last step that we take is we kneel in a circle and say our morning prayer together before they head out the door.

We have found this to be a great way to build a relationship with our children and help create good healthy habits in them while they are still young.  It also starts the morning off in a peaceful and more calm way which we all know as parents is a CONSTANT struggle.  It’s still a work in progress but they look forward to it!
