Mindfulness is paying attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them. It’s being aware of surroundings and our state of being. It can be as simple as just focusing on the present moment. Not dwelling about what happened in the past or worrying about the future. You are focused on the now.
For my own children, practicing mindfulness has helped them be more relaxed and calm. It’s important to keep any practice of mindfulness simple and fun. It also shouldn’t be forced. If they are resistant to a specific practice, try something else. In this video, we are going to go over 5 simple mindfulness exercises for kids. They are fun and really easy to do.
