We created Mindful Kids in 10 Minutes a Day to help you easily bring mindfulness to children.
This done-for-you workbook and handy video series will provide you with daily activities to help kids find quietude, calm, and focus in the midst of their otherwise-busy day.
These simple sensory activities and breathing exercises will provide new tools and helpful strategies for students and children to thrive… today and for many years to come.
- Have a fresh approach to exploring emotions and finding calm in a way that kids can easily understand… even if you’ve had a hard time getting buy-in from kids in the past.
- Teach children simple self-regulation and resiliency skills daily that you can easily incorporate at home or in a classroom… without having to hunt for new resources or figure out how to deliver the information.
- Gain the confidence and tools to introduce mindfulness in the classroom or at home to help anxious children self-regulate better… even when kids say they don’t need it and think it’s “lame.”
- Explore fun, engaging activities that meet them where they’re at… even when they have a tough time sitting still and are distracted by everything around them.
- Provide new outlets for kids to interact, connect, and share feelings with one another… even when they’re asked to do so at a distance or with a mask on in person.
- Discover how to easily embed or integrate mindfulness and breathing exercises during a child's day… regardless of whether it's distance-learning, in class, or a hybrid situation.
- Capture children’s attention with a variety of interesting sensory activities introduced through videos and worksheets… even if kids show little patience or are not willing to give mindfulness a try.
- Provide simple, engaging and fun brain and body breaks that children can easily remember and use at home, in the classroom, and anytime to self-regulate and destress… even if your students have zero interest and patience to even begin learning what mindfulness is.
- Encourage healthy interactions and connections between you and your children and between peers or siblings… even if children are frustrated, short-tempered, or agitated.
- Help kids become more in touch with their inner world and give them tools to express their moods, feelings, physical sensations, and emotions… even when they lack the words to express their feelings and emotions adequately.
- Have all the ten-minute exercises, tools, strategies, handouts, and videos in one place… so you can easily squeeze mindfulness into an already-packed schedule when you’re pressured to hit every standard and academic requirement.
" I just wanted to thank you so much for the creation of Mindful Kids in 10 Minutes a Day. I introduced my class to the activities last week and they are loving it so far. The thing they like the most is the "Smelly Tuesday", as I call it. I think that the kids have been learning how their senses make a difference in the way they feel. They had a fantastic time with the Mystery Smell activity, and I was surprised at how the children were able to identify the smells and say how it made them feel, (or more often, if they liked the smell or not). I am looking forward to the other activities and I will continue to use the activities until they run out." - Ariella L.
