Kids' Mindfulness Audio on Yoto
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is giving something your full attention. It means calming the mind, resisting the urge to act, and taking a moment to pay attention. By doing so, you train your mind to observe without judgement and to take in stride the ups and downs of life.
Mindfulness can help kids develop greater mental, physical and emotional wellbeing by teaching them to control their impulses, to improve their focus, and to be kind to themselves. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
Meditation is a great example of a mindful activity. By focusing on their breathing, kids can quieten and focus their minds. This is an excellent way to prepare for a good night's sleep, and can form the cornerstone of a bedtime routine.
At Yoto, we're big fans of kids' mindfulness and meditation! And so we're thrilled to be introducing a range of fantastic mindfulness titles to the Yoto Card Store.
