If you are wondering how your kids can snap out of a bad mood, ease their anxiety, or relax to go to sleep, they may be in need of some mindfulness.
Mindfulness is simply being present and aware rather than being distracted and reactive. Being mindful lifts you out of stagnation and into the here and now so that you can view the present with a refreshed outlook. A renewed perspective can generate new energy, ideas, and momentum. Mindfulness, like a muscle, becomes stronger with use, and therefore, easier to do.
So what are some examples of mindfulness? It is being aware of one's own breathing. It is placing focus on smell, sight, taste, or sound. It is being deliberate with one's actions. These are some of the simple tools that can lift a mood, relieve tension, and promote calmness.
