Mindfulness and Children

Mindfulness and children. Perhaps this is an unlikely pairing to you now, but it may be the future in classrooms. A study, linked here https://www.mindful.org/mindfulness-at-school-improves-critical-learning-skills/ ,explores the benefits of practicing mindfulness with school age children. Children read books on mindfulness, practiced breathing exercises, performed body scans (a relaxation technique), and used mindfulness diaries.

Some of the benefits:

-Improve executive functioning

-Pay better attention

-Regulate emotions

-Make plans

If your child could benefit from mindfulness, give us a call! We work with ages 3 and up.
