The Meditations for Concentration mp3 is a tool that helps kids calm down and be present. It contains nine practical mindfulness skills that you can easily incorporate into your life and work with kids. The mp3 leads kids through short guided mindfulness meditations that ‘use their imaginations’ to calm down their ‘monkey brain’ and learn to be present. Kids love it.

The mp3 contains nine short vignettes ranging in length from 1 minute to 2:38 minutes. Each vignette asks the listener to close their eyes and use their imagination. The vignettes are titled:
•In the Tree
•In the Classroom
•Taking A Test
•In the Game
•Sitting still

Listening to these mindfulness exercises trains mindfulness and concentration. They are aimed at kids from 2-12 but many teens have enjoyed them as well. Some of my adult clients have found them helpful but the topic of the vignettes is more relevant to kids and teens. I use them in session and parents often use them at home with their kids. Some Special Ed teachers use them regularly with their students.

I have discovered that kids really pay attention while listening to the meditations. Some who listen several times on different occasions actually start to memorize it. In fact, one young boy who was way too cool to listen, gave himself away when he noticed I stuttered on the recording and he immediately said ‘ah ha, you made a mistake’. He was listening to every word while pretending he wasn’t.

Parents regularly tell me how the kids start to remind themselves to concentrate using some of the phrases they hear on the recording. And parents can reinforce what the kids learn from the recording during the day.
