This program is for families who would like to bring more peace, ease and happiness into their homes. It is for children who are struggling to deal with their BIG emotions and feelings and who need some extra resilience and support in life. It's also for families who want to teach their childen to be happier, more confident, emotionally aware and resilient. All we really want for our children is their happiness. And mindfulness teaches children how to live a happier, more high vibe and positive life.
Children experience stress just like adults do – if not more so – and teaching them how to embrace mindfulness can go a long way to helping them live a happier and more peaceful life.
Long lasting and intense stress has been linked to a smaller memory centre in children’s brains. These differences in the brain also extend to cognitive ability, with children who live stressful lives performing less well on spatial memory tests.
Most parents and teachers would probably agree that stress in children is not good and finding ways to help them counter-act it can be life-changing.
Mindfulness and meditation helps children to counteract the effects of stress, with simple ways it can be brought into the child’s daily routine.
Happy In The Moment mindfulness courses help children to benefit from practising mindfulness, providing techniques which will help them to handle negative emotions and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives. They're fun, relaxed and focussed on positivity.
Following a course in mindfulness, children show improvements in attention, calmness, social compliance and even caring towards others! Research also shows that mindfulness training for children has the ability to increase attention and social-emotional awareness as well.
