About

Babies are naturally mindful. They come pre-wired to explore the world, using their senses. As we get older, our minds are often so filled with the hustle and bustle of modern life, and with worries about the past and future, that we are taken further and further away from the present moment.

As a mum of a toddler, I marvel at this instinctive mindfulness every day. She will study the tiniest details of a flower or point with delight at an aeroplane flying high up in the sky. As she grows I don't want her to lose this ability that comes so easily to her now.

Mindfulness benefits children in many different ways. Teaching them to be grateful, helping them to understand their thoughts and feelings and how to manage them appropriately and promoting an overall sense of wellbeing are a few examples. Mindfulness is slowly being introduced into schools across the country for older children, but there is currently nothing in place for younger children. It makes sense to me to continue nurturing this skill that our babies are born with, rather than wait for it to be lost, and then start again.

I have used my experience as a primary school teacher, and my understanding of child development, as well as my training and own personal experience of mindfulness, to put together my favourite simple, tried and tested mindfulness based activities. I have carefully adapted them so that they are appropriate for young children (from preschooler age up through primary school) and the whole family.

I hope you enjoy them!

Warmly,
Sal
