Sattvic Activities for the Family and You!

Sattvic activities to try

Readers of Sattva Tattva #blog have asked for tips and sattvic #activities for the #family at this time of self-quarantine. Some have asked for activities for the family with kids. Others have asked what they can do with their teenagers and their children to keep active. The idea behind these requests is to learn some sattvic activity or skill that they can use in their daily life.

A sattvic lifestyle is an active participatory lifestyle. That means you naturally restrict the amount of time you sit down or participate in passive activities such as watching television or chatting on the phone. All sattvic activities are intensely #active, even if it does not seem to be so.

If you have other suggestions, please share it in the comments section. Hope you like this post, please share the article and #subscribe to the #blog and YouTube channel.
