This week can be a stressful one for those with 7 and 11 year olds – SATS week. The schools can be gentle and supportive – but these are young children doing tests over a week!

So this video is to share some quick and simple tools you can implement into your day for the benefit of any child – and you as a parent too!

The video is 43 minutes long – but you can always stop, pause and restart using this link on the page.

The key element is to choose something to do and to show your child that you benefit from this process too. So if you are asking for them to put their electronics down – make sure you don’t have your phone on either!

Wishing you all calm

Do you find your children go a bit emotional, loony or sensitive around the time of the full moon?

It’s not unusual. A few days before and for a couple of days after it can affect their emotions, behaviour and sleep patterns

In this video I share information around this subject and how you can support your children.

In the UK we have a full moon on 31st Jan, which is also a blood moon and a super moon and a blue moon! Plus an eclipse so the energy is beginning to affect us all already!

If the moon can effect the tides, the largest bodies of water, then why wouldn’t it affect us as humans, mainly made up of water.

Simple Tools to Support Children’s Wellbeing – Visualisations

1 Benefits of visualisations

What is meditation?

It is a practice to focus and relax & calm the brain.It can be as simple as relaxing, closing your eyes and concentrating on your breathing for a few minutes (as the kettle boils).

What is visualisation and how does it differ from meditation?

Visualisation is doing meditation but focusing on building an image or visual experience in your mind. It focuses the chattering, untrained mind so is ideal for beginners or children. It also allows you to experience emotions during the relaxation. It is often a way to review situations and images and observe how we feel and react rather than suppressing the emotion  and holding onto it.

Benefits for Children:

  • The brain neurons form complex connections in different areas of the brain – neuroplasticity (brain is shaped through regular exercise)
  • Cortisol (stress hormone) is reduced in the body and so the stress response reduces and the relaxation response increases and occurs
  • Endorphins (feel good hormones) are released creating a positive feel for the child
  • Relaxation response occurs
  • Children feel revived, re-energised afterwards
  • Children able to more able to manage emotions
  • Create positive imaginative ideas within the visualisation

Meditations for Children

These can be simple breathing exercises, or breathing in colour (such as a calm, peaceful blue). My favourite is the toast and butter example below. Check out my webpage for more examples

Well Easter has passed and I know my kids and hubby munched through their eggs within days! I’ve still got one whole one – its not that I haven’t eaten chocolate but more that I want to savour the experience.

As much as I love to eat chocolate  – a lot – I also want to try and be mindful with the experience – savour the texture, melting sensation and taste.

So I’ve recorded this mindful chocolate egg experience so I can enjoy the experience once the eggs have all gone!

Enjoy!
