Mindfulness can help children understand complex emotions and their physical manifestations in our body. The awareness helps us to understand that we are not our emotions. We are separate from our emotions. This helps children to recognise and regulate.  For children, emotions can be overwhelming and all-consuming at times. Mindfulness gives a child the space needed to respond consciously to a challenging situation instead of simply reacting automatically.

Mindfulness is a very effective response to stress and enhances children’s  “executive function”. This is the neurological process used to make decisions, manage time, organise tasks and set priorities. Mindfulness improves clarity of thought and the ability to make better decisions. The focused awareness practised in mindfulness helps children improve their ability to pay attention and in turn helps to improve their memory.

All children can benefit from learning to focus their attention, becoming less reactive, and more compassionate with themselves and others.
