Plain and Simple - Less Really is More!
I hesitated after I took this photo.
I thought, gosh how boring does this space look? Especially when we see all those other baby groups with loads of colour, props and exciting things to look at.
But then I remembered why I chose this space for my classes.
I chose it because it IS plain.
This means we can limit distraction and sensory overwhelm for new babies.
Babies are able to fully process the purpose of the class - bonding through nurturing touch.
Parents are able to fully focus on their babies and massage mindfully - bonding through nurturing touch.
My classes don't need sensory extras. There is already so much going on - stimulation, interaction, relaxation and relief as we massage.
I won't dilute that with unnecessary extras just to make it look more attractive.
What matters is what is already happening.
Sometimes less really is more.
