Meditation & Mindfulness is a practise which is becoming more popular everyday among children and adults.
Mindfulness is a form of self-awareness training. It refers to non-judgmental awareness of moment-to-moment experience. Through mindfulness practice, the children intentionally pay full attention to whatever is occurring in the present moment without judging it hence enabling them to be more open and curious to their experiences. The children learn to observe their thinking and their emotions without becoming ‘them’. In this view, freedom becomes a possibility and enables the child to continue to unfold in his/her life rather than having heavy thoughts and feelings dominating his/her life. Furthermore, it enables children to act with care and consideration rather than reacting impulsively to various stresses.
The practise is known to:
- Strengthen self-control
- Lower anxiety and stress levels
- Increase positive moods
- Improve emotional regulation skills.
- Increases self-esteem.
- Improves health and body image.
- And lots more...
