What Is Mindfulness, and Why Do Kids Need It?

From our earliest moments, mindfulness can help minimize anxiety and increase happiness. 

 

Mindfulness and its benefits can be introduced to children as an idea, an activity and a skill that reaps rewards in so many ways. 

The benefits list from Mindfulness is long, many layered and similar to the benefit lists that flow from many healthy ways of living such as adequate exercise, sleep, entertaining healthy thoughts and consuming nutritious food for example.

Mindfulness is staying present and experiencing 'now'. Children respond well to encouragement in this regard. If the parents are interested in mindfulness and its benefits the children will lean in this direction and trheir interest can be nurtured. 

What is Neuroplasticity? What can it do for you?

For as long as you are alive you can change your brain to benefit you! 

Neuroplasticity is activated when you challenge your brain by learning skills such as a new; language, games, dance or new fields of study, for example.

This causes the creation of new connections within the brain. This 'brain training' can help you stay 'younger' and free you from old or unhelpful patterns such as negativity or fear that may be an undercurrent in your life.

This is not just 'use it or lose it' but use your brain 'differently' to build more of what you want in your life.
