Meditating isn’t just for adults, and meditation for kids can be beneficial too. The thousand year old relaxation technique can help kids to focus better, have less anxiety, improve their self esteem and even sleep more soundly. Introducing your kids to meditation can be easier by following these steps: Firstly, designate a quiet place to meditate, free from distractions and explain to your children exactly what’s involved and what to expect. Most children need to be guided at first, until they have the confidence to meditate alone and sessions should be taken seriously, with no giggling or fighting, and an emphasis on proper breathing. There are different methods when it comes to teaching, such as breath meditation, body relaxation and creating what is known as a mind place, and you may have to practice trial and error to see what works best.
