Why teach Mindfulness to kids?

Children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing does not only hold great social value it is fast becoming the number 1 priority for parents, families and primary schools. Research now shows teaching Mindfulness to children is a vital activity, and, could possibly be the most important preparation for High School, University and Young Adulthood over the coming years.

Why a focus on kids?

This is a difficult time to be teaching and raising children. Many experts are now saying we have created an unrealistic environment for kids. Academic Pressure, Electronic Devices, Cyber Bullying, Stress, Worry, Anxiety and Insomnia are just a few of the alarming words that are now commonplace in our children’s lives. Read More

 

How common are mental health issues with kids?

Unfortunately, as we speak mental health issues with kids are on the increase. Kids are starting to suffer from anxiety and depression at a younger and younger age.

  • “Just a few decades ago the average onset age of depression was 29.5 years old. Today it is almost exactly half that: 14.5 years old.” - Source: Shawn Achor, Harvard University

 

What do the facts say?

One in six children and adolescents aged between 4 and 17 years will now experience a mental health disorder in any given year. - Source: Beyond Blue

  • Early intervention programs and a focus on younger people is important as research suggests that 50% of mental health conditions emerge between the ages of 4 and 14, making it vital to intervene and create positive healthy habits as early as possible

So what is it about Mindfulness?

In the last few years, Mindfulness has emerged as an effective way to teach children resilience, awareness and self-belief and how to manage a range of emotional challenges in their day to day lives.

Helping children relax and focus better so that they can concentrate and memorise more effectively at school, as well as still their minds and breathe correctly to assist with sleep, worry and unhelpful thoughts, leading to a happier state of mind and a more fulfilling life.

      Much gratitude to @isabellemaryfitzgerald for imparting her wonderful knowledge - a true inspiration doing so much life-changing work both in the local community and further afield 🙏🏼🙏🏼

      Im so excited to integrate this knowledge and resources into my clinic work and other areas of my life and those around me.

      EVERY CHILD deserves to have their own peaceful universe and should be given the tools to find that peace in times of trouble and adversity 🙌🙌
