17 ways to teach mindfulness to children

03/07/2019

What exactly is mindfulness, and why is it relevant for children? Mindfulness enables you to concentrate on the moment, in body, mind, and environment. Through its beginnings in Buddhism, it has developed to help to increase self-awareness, to be in control of your thoughts and negative feelings, to feel calmer, and to be kinder and more at peace with yourself. There are lots of ways of achieving this, and it has numerous benefits for any age group. Getting young minds into the habit of thinking this way will help them to deal with stressful situations, both now and later, and will enable them to make judgements and decisions with confidence. It will aid their concentration and encourage calmness, too - but how do you teach mindfulness to children?

However, we are only now beginning to talk about ways in which children can look after their emotional wellbeing in the same way. The fact that that is changing can only be a good thing.
