So how do we make this wisdom more accessible to kids? When we thought through different approaches, we explored the various ways mindfulness can be achieved for adults. From there, we built a set of exercises that focus on a few key areas:
Mindful Movement: Using creative stretches and movement to encourage realtime awareness of the kids' bodies as they're creatively in motion.
Mindful Awareness: Encouraging the kids to get still with their bodies and become deeply aware of the world around around them by using their senses to tap into sight, sound, taste, and smell.
Mindful Meditation: Building a practice where kids learn to be deeply still with their bodies and their minds. This stillness and quiet allows for them to create space between themselves and their thoughts and emotions.
