Description

Mindfulness for Children course: Level 3

Mindfulness for Children? It is usually thought of as something that only applies to adults suffering with stress, anger, anxiety, and depression. However; mindfulness is very easy for children to use.

The Mindfulness for Children course uses stress and its’ symptoms as its base point. When a child becomes worried, anxious, afraid, etc they are suffering from stress. These emotions, which a child may not fully understand, are stressful to them.

In the first part of the Mindfulness for Children we cover:

  • the symptoms of stress
  • the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed
  • why stress exists
  • the effects on the brain and body

The course also explains how mindfulness is effective at counteracting the negative effects. Afterwards we examine simple ways that mindfulness may be used in a daily routine of a child. (Just as easily as it can be used in an adult’s life, with positive effects).

From this you will learn:

  • what mindfulness and meditation are and are not
  • what their differences are
  • how a child can be taught to practice both
  • what the benefits mindfulness and meditation are

The course also provides some practical meditation exercises. These are very easy and only take about one minute or two to complete. Absolutely great for kids to practice.

There is information about the brain – it is not too technical. You will learn about its ability to develop new neural pathways and networks. So as to adapt to new ideas and actions. This demonstrates that it is possible to change thoughts and behaviour quite easily.

Mindfulness for children

To children there are many new things in their life every day. However; just like adults they can start living on ‘autopilot’. This is where it becomes important to stop and be more mindful of what they are doing and thinking. This course gives you techniques to help you, and the children you work with, to do this. There is a wealth of advice and strategies about gaining a more mindful life.

From an early age kids are ‘taught’ to strive for more and never be satisfied with what they have. They are surrounded by a world full of negative messages of the self and of the world through. The Mindfulness for Children course helps them regain a natural focus on the simplicity of accepting and appreciating what they have.

Modern kids frequently have great perceived wants and needs, to them it is ‘normal’. They appear to have no sense of gratitude. But, be able to appreciate what they already have and then be grateful for what they get can be life changing. To help students to practice gratitude you will get guided mediations and a 28 day gratitude journal for them to complete.

The Mindfulness for Children course provides child friendly, specially written, exercises for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence.

There is also an extensive appendix of affirmations. Children can to choose the ones they like to counteract negative thoughts, actions and emotions.
