There’s a lot of fuss in the media right now around mindfulness and what it can do to reduce stress. That’s why I decided to talk about mindfulness exercises for kids as it’s not quite as widely talked about just yet.
The reason for this is most likely due to the fact that mindfulness is really still in it’s infancy stages when it comes to mainstream acceptance.
For some it’s looked at as the new buzz around the world, much like yoga was a few years ago. For others, it’s either something they are sceptical about, or they already use it daily and understand how it works.
Mindfulness And Children
Firstly, let me explain what mindfulness is. It’s all about becoming an observer of the mind and body so that we can be focused in the present moment. This helps us to step back from the ‘busy’ mind which in turn leads to more calm, clarity and focus.
In the past few years mindfulness has been used as a way to treat children with a wide-range of conditions ranging from anxiety and depression, through to ADHD and stress. And the results have been tremendously positive.
But the real secret behind getting this to work with children is how you go about explaining it to them so that it makes sense to them even at the age of four, five or even fifteen. I’m going to explain exactly how this works in the video below so that you can decide for yourself if it may be something your child may benefit from.
