Mindfulness Practice for Children

Child Therapy

Mindfulness practice can help with many challenges. It is specifically helpful in child therapy to assist children in managing stress, anxiety, and worry in a gentle way while increasing happiness. 

By paying attention to the present moment in an accepting, nonjudgmental manner, children learn to self-regulate and experience relief in that moment. Mindfulness aids in developing the skills that are controlled in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, like focus and cognitive control. 

This can therefore have a particular impact on the development of skills including self-regulation, judgment, and patience during childhood. Oftentimes, incorporating mindfulness into work with children helps kids name body sensations, thoughts, and emotions.
