Creating healthy, mindful habits in a child’s early years can improve the behaviours and choices in later years. We have been given an amazing opportunity to give our children positive habits of self-awareness, cognitive control, emotional intelligence, self-regulation and higher tolerance to stress with simple mindfulness tools.
With mindfulness as a part of their education, we can encourage a great sense of self, contentment, patience, non-judgement and peace within themsleves. As the body becomes more practised in this, children learn to live more in their parasympathetic nervous system (calm, relaxed and slow), rather than their reactive nervous system (flight, fight, freeze or stress)
Mindfulness is a simple way to connect with your child, enjoy some down time and learn calming techniques together.
