Peace Out


Tried and True

Written and narrated by Chanel Tsang

"This is what we really hoped and imagined in our mind's eye," - NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory Rob Manning. NASA’s Mars Insight lander reached Mars last week but work on this started a long time ago when humans imagined themselves reaching another planet. This relaxation story has three breathing exercises and we talk about how it’s important to try new things and to get up and try again when things don’t work out.

This season we’re heading out to space, and with that, we are introducing a new feature: SafeSPACE. If your child would like to share where/who/what their safe, happy, or calm space is, please send in a recording of them, picture, or message to or on our Facebook page @bedtimefm or Twitter @peaceoutpodcast. We’d love to hear what makes them feel this way and why and we’ll share it on a future episode or on our social media!

We were inspired by Emma Seppala’s article on Quartz! Check it out for amazing advice on supporting your child’s happiness and success:
