It’s common knowledge that meditation is a great tool to find peace and balance amid our hectic lives—that’s why so many people enjoy the practice. Exposing our children to these ancient, yet practical, techniques can help them cope with stress in a more positive way and lead them to living healthier lives.
Unfortunately an increasing number of children are showing elevated signs of stress and anxiety starting at a very young age. So, how do we get our kids invested in meditating? We lead by example.
Children often copy the behavior of their parents. Initiating a meditation practice can be as simple as leading by example. When your kids observe you in meditation, it sets a tone and inspires them to join in.
We’ve designed this mindful meditation to be practiced together as a family. We suggest you use the podcast to meditate together, then discuss the practice, what you saw and how it made you feel.
