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 many families and primary schools. Research now shows teaching Mindfulness and Meditation 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.

What do the facts say about mental health?

Early intervention programs and a focus on younger people are 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.

This week I did something amazing- I completed the Teacher Training for the Mindfulness and Meditation Program for students and children with @mypeacefuluniverse

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 🙌🙌
