The practice of mindfulness is one of the simplest ways to help lead a more mentally healthy life. While the techniques of mindfulness can be quite simple and attainable for kids and humans of all ages, it does require discipline and some help from the people around you. I have found personally that practicing mindfulness has greatly helped me stay present in the moment and fight off the some of the daily struggles thrown my way. As a parent I have already introduced these techniques to my 6 year old in hopes of getting his brain wired to be more present in the moment and understanding that life is nothing more than a collection of moments that pass and get followed up by more.
On today’s show I discuss what mindfulness is, ways we can achieve it, and give examples I think might be helpful to you and your children. Towards the end of the show I bring on Samara Zelniker, a certified holistic wellness coach and creator of Mindfulness Matters
, a company aimed at spreading the positive message and benefits of mindfulness, to further the discussion.
