Being a Kid and Discovering Magic

Disneyland is beyond magical —three days of being totally involved in the excitement and joy of Mickie and Minnie, parades, light shows and rides! And of extra special note — I was there with my family. For someone who loves amusement parks and being a kid-at-heart, I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

I wasn’t the only one excited to be at the park. Even though it was raining, there were so many people who were thrilled to be at the happiest place on earth. So how did I contain some my excitement so I wasn’t a complete embarrassment to my kids? And how did I make sure my body cooperated so I could do everything I wanted to do? One of our days was fifteen hours long, so I had to make sure I didn’t lose my juice, especially since that day was cold.

Discovering Magic with These Energy Tips

As you follow these easy-to-do suggestions, you’ll notice that both you and your children can easily do them. All of you just might discover how much  smoother your days can be!

I started the day with the Daily Clean Your House Flow. And then while I was waiting in lines and waiting for rides to start I did the following to make sure my body was prepared for what I was going to ask it to do:

To release any neck tension and boost the immune system

  •     Right hand — hold fingers at base of right side of skull
  •     Left hand — hold fingers just below center of right collarbone
  •     Right hand — move fingers to right side of neck
  •     Left hand — move fingers to left chest below left collarbone

To warm up — hold fingers on outside of knees

To expand breath and “handle feelings”

  •     Jumper cable — gently cup each thumb and finger
  •     Cup ring finger and middle finger at the same time — will help create a sense of happiness and joy and take away frustration, all at the same time!

Being a Kid

One of the things I discovered as I played in Disneyland is that it creates a child-like excitement when you allow yourself to be caught up in the moment. I love being a kid and I don’t mind being seen as a kid. I might be sixty-three years old, but whether it’s Disneyland, or Christmas, or being with little ones, I’ll never grow up.

I wish for you to have lots of fun-filled moments — whether you’re on your own or with your children. My suggestion is to find ways to be a kid. It really is okay to be filled with the child-like joy!
