Sometimes I hear people ask: why do children need to practice mindfulness, anyway? They’re kids! What do they have to be stressed about?
Well the answer is: plenty, unfortunately. Young children are dealing with more stress and anxiety than ever before (no thanks to ever-present devices and media that shout 24/7 about all the craziness in the world). If you’re a parent or a teacher of young children, I’m sure you know what I mean.
And like the rest of us, children hold stress in their bodies, which is why incorporating movement into mindful exercises with them is so important. (Here are two quick and easy, tension-busting ones for you to try: Shoulder Squeeze and Twister.) 🧘💫
