Mindful awareness works by allowing you to pay more attention to what's going on inside of you - your thoughts, feelings, and emotions - in order to better grasp what's going on. Susan Kaiser Greenland's age-appropriate exercises, songs, games, and tales, created over more than a decade of teaching mindful awareness to children, expand the immense benefits of mindfulness training to children aged four to eighteen.
These fun and friendly techniques improve children's inner and outer awareness and attention, which benefits their academic performance as well as their social and emotional skills, such as making friends, being compassionate and kind to others, and participating in sports. They also provide tools to manage stress and overcome specific challenges, such as insomnia, overeating, ADHD, hyper-perfectionism, anxiety, and chronic pain. When kids take a few moments to think before reacting to stressful situations, they allow their healthy inner compasses to kick in and guide them to become more thoughtful, resilient, and empathic. The Mindful Child's step-by-step approach to mental training delivers tools that will benefit all children and all families.
