Mindful Tips

  • Start by taking a few deep breaths. Begin with belly breaths to settle in and get centered. Inhale slowly through nose, letting belly fill up with air, hold for a moment, and then exhale slowly through mouth.
  • Do what feels good. Have kids listen to their bodies. If an exercise includes something that is not possible for them or feels unpleasant, have them explore ways to do the exercise in a way that best suits them.
  • Build consistency. A daily practice for at least a few minutes per day is recommended; however, you can identify specific times that suits your schedule.
