Lets face it, life is beautiful, but it's also stressful and the path is not always clear. Finding balance is something that often takes years, but why?
Adam believed in a world of balance, peace, love and respect. Although he didn't get a chance to continue his mission of spreading these virtues, we will continue to spread them for him.
Part of balance is maintaining emotional and mental strength through stressful and difficult times. As children we often don't understand how to manage the different challenges we may encounter.
While counselling, ultimately talking to people about our concerns can be helpful, tools like creative expression through painting, writing and building, cooking, yoga, meditation, hiking and more can allow children to open up and be open to finding balance in their lives.
