A Mindful Minute: 3 Fun Mindfulness Exercises For Kids

The goal of mindfulness is to train your mind to observe your thoughts and feelings without judgement or criticism. In this, you can cut out habitual, negative thought patterns and prevent downward spirals of negativity. You further carve a path to access expansive inner resources of peace, contentment, meaning, and well-being.

One goal of these exercises is to train the mind to purposefully focus attention on a present experience. Try them in the morning, before bed, or at my favorite place/time: the dinner table right before you eat. 🙂

1. Breathe like a bee.

2. Create magnetic hands.

3. Dissolve a thought.
