Have you ever tried to find Meditations for your kids? Or maybe look up kids meditations only to find stuff geared for way older kids? Or maybe (like me) you looked up meditations for kids only to be told that kids under the age of 10 or so “can’t be taught to meditate.”Well, I would like to introduce you to someone:Meet Splork! He is the mascot for KidCentered.com!
My 4 year old and newly 7 year old LOVE their MindTime Meditations! They are short, fun, and as my youngest put it, “feel like dreaming while awake.”
So why would you want your kids to meditate?
There are a number of scientific (not to mention spiritual) reasons why it’s optimal for kids to meditate, such as:
- Enhances brain function
- Enhances creativity
- Reduces stress
- Improves physical health
- Improves social and personal relationships
- Develops spirituality or a closer connection to [insert preferred name here for God, Universe, Source, etc]
(Pssssst those are all benefits for grown ups too!)There is a wealth of data available out there to support the benefits of #meditation
but my favorite thing about MindTime (aside from the fact that my kids LOVE it and ASK to do it each day) is that KidCentered.com doesn’t believe that kids need “fixing” they simply provide a unique solution for families who are struggling with specific issues like bedtime, or homework time, or tantrums, or any of the myriad of troubles that parents go through with their children.The folks over at KidCentered.com were kind enough to give us a free meditation for you to try with your little one.
