How Does Mindfulness Help Kids?
Children are often affected by their surroundings, which can lead to negative emotion build-up such as stress and anxiety.
Stress and anxiety can adversely affect children’s performance at school, as well as their family and social life.
Mindfulness for Kids can help parents and teachers find and implement strategies to successfully help navigate the child’s world inside and out.
Through mindfulness children can learn to handle difficult emotions. Children get the opportunity to develop an inner compass of knowing and feeling what they need.
Through the mindfulness process, they also learn how to express themselves appropriately, which leads to less conflict with their environment.
Mindfulness for Kids encourages children to learn about themselves and act appropriately.
With the help of mindfulness practices, exercises, and creative arts projects such as art, poetry, painting, music and writing, children are taught to relax and soothe themselves.
