How to Meditate with Your Kids

By teaching children meditation and mindfulness skills we help them increase their well-being and enable them to meet the stresses of the world with presence, self-compassion, and openness.

In order to help kids of all ages find their way into practicing mindfulness, it can be helpful to give them an easy definition they can relate to.

A Definition of Mindfulness Meditation for Children

Mindfulness meditation, at its simplest, is paying attention to what is happening in the present moment. It may be what you’re feeling, hearing, or anything else you notice. There’s no special place of calm you have to reach and it’s not about clearing your mind, it’s just an honest and kind look at what you’re experiencing in this moment. 

A Mindfulness Practice for Families

By Christopher Willard

One easy way to introduce mindfulness to your children is through informal practices that you can do along with them. Start with a simple kindness meditation—offering good wishes and compassion to others.

1. To begin, find a comfortable sitting position. You can even place a hand on the heart. Allow your eyes to close or lower your gaze toward the floor.

2. Bring to mind someone who you really respect and look up to, and who really loves you in return. 

3. Notice how you feel as you bring this person to mind.

4. Make a kind wish and send it their way. What would make them happy?

5. Next, bring to mind someone else you love and care about: A family member, a friend, a beloved colleague. Just bring this person to mind, sending this person a kind wish.

We’ll move from here to a more neutral person. Perhaps someone you don’t know very well: A parent you see occasionally in the pick-up line, a person who delivers your mail, or makes your coffee in the morning. Just bring this person to mind and imagine yourself sending them some kind of kind wish.

6. Lastly, bring to mind someone who has frustrated you lately, someone who is a little difficult. Send this last person a kind wish—something nice for them in their life.

7. Check in with your mind and body as you conclude this practice. Allow your eyes to open if they’ve been closed. Notice if there’s any shift

Why Teach Mindfulness to Children?

When we teach mindfulness to kids, we give them the tools they need to build confidence, cope with stress, and relate to uncomfortable or challenging moments. The earlier we do so in their young lives, the greater the opportunity to help them cultivate resilience and develop and refine their mindfulness practice as they mature.

Teaching mindfulness to kids can also help shape three critical skills developed in early childhood: paying attention and remembering information, shifting back and forth between tasks, and behaving appropriately with others. These abilities are known as executive functions and they are essential for more advanced tasks like planning, reasoning, problem-solving, and positive social relationships.

There Benefits of Mindfulness for Kids

Studies show that the benefits of mindfulness for kids may include:

1. Increased focus, attention, self-control, classroom participation, compassion.

2. Improved academic performance, ability to resolve conflict, overall well-being.

3. Decreased levels of stress, depression, anxiety, disruptive behavior.

Mindfulness Activities for Kids

To introduce the idea of mindfulness more directly to your kids, you can use exercises that encourage them to tune into their senses. Make a game out of eating a snack very slowly, savoring the smell, texture, and taste. Or, dive into an afternoon of glitter jar making with any variety of materials: glitter, different-coloured beads, food colouring and oil, pieces of lego. The DIY craft doubles as a creative exercise and a mindfulness tool to represent the mind settling.

An Appreciation Practice for Children

By Susan Kaiser Greenland

Leading the game:

  1. Ask your child: “Do you ever feel disappointed by something or someone?”
  2. Ask: “How did that make you feel?”
    Acknowledge their feelings and, if appropriate, talk about them.
  3. Say something like: “I bet even when you’re feeling disappointed there are good things happening in your life, too. Let’s name three good things together.”

Tips for naming three good things:

  1. Remind your child that the point of this game isn’t to pretend they’re not upset when they feel upset. It’s to remember that they can feel two things at once: they can feel grateful for good things while feeling sad, hurt, or disappointed by challenges.
  2. If children or teens have trouble thinking of three good things on their own, brainstorm and help them discover some.
  3. When kids understand that this game is not about sweeping their feelings under the rug, the phrase “three good things” can become a playful and humorous response to the minor gripes that show up in family life.
  4. Parents can encourage kids to remind them to name Three Good Things when they’re stuck on a trivial disappointment or minor annoyance, too.
  5. To develop a habit of thankfulness, play Three Good Things around the dinner table, before bedtime, and at other times when the family is together.

Guided Mindfulness Meditation for Children

Once your child is comfortable with the idea of meditation, you can offer them tools to refine their own practice. Here are three guided practices developed for kids. Feel free to join your child in these meditations if it helps encourage focus.

An 8-Minute Practice to Notice Positive Moments

A Mindfulness Practice for Kids: Coming Back to the Positive—From Dr. Mark Bertin

  • 8:00
  1. Lie down somewhere comfortable. Let your arms and legs fall to the ground. Close your eyes gently.
  2. Start to notice how your body changes with each breath you take. Each time you breathe, your belly moves up, and your belly moves down. If it is easier, put a hand on your belly. Or if you want, put a stuffed animal there.
  3. Each time you breathe, your belly moves. Your hand, or your toy, rises, and then falls. See if you can count ten breaths that way. Breathing in, one, breathing out, one.
  4. When you lose count, don’t worry about it. That’s normal, and happens to everyone. Come back to whatever number you last remember.
  5. Now, shift your attention to your day. Breathing in, focus on your breath as your belly goes up. Breathing out, focus on something that went well today.
  6. With each breath: breathing in, noticing your belly move, and with each breath out, noticing something that went well today.
  7. Now, picture something about yourself that makes you proud. Breathing in, focus on your belly moving. Breathing out, picture something that makes you proud of yourself. If nothing comes to mind, that sometimes happens. If that’s how you feel, picture what you’d wish for yourself instead.
  8. Finally, bring someone to mind who makes you happy. Before we end, try one more practice. Breathing in, notice your belly move. And now, breathing out, picture someone who makes you happy.
  9. As you come to the end of this practice, take a few deep breaths, and start to wiggle your arms and legs. Pause and decide what you’d like to do next.
  10. It’s normal to have thoughts that make us feel scared or bad. We should never ignore anything important, but it’s useful to focus on the rest of our lives too. Take a few minutes every day to notice what has gone well, and see what happens next.

Helping Kids Cope with Stress

Mindfulness practice can offer your child stress management strategies to calm their nervous system. Below are a few kid-friendly breathing techniques you can demonstrate and do with them.

5 Mindful Breath Practices for Children

1. Belly Breathing

When breathing in, the belly expands slightly; and when breathing out, it contracts. Do several rounds and return to normal breathing.

2. Mindful Breathing

Simply notice the breath and feel it move in the body. You can add visuals and words to make the practice more engaging. For example, on the in-breath ask your child to repeat the phrase, I am a lake and on the out-breath, I am calm. This technique can be adapted to use any visual and taps into the power of imagination.

3. Teddy Bear Breath

This is a great variation of the belly-breathing practice for little ones. Have them lie down with a teddy or stuffed animal on their belly, and let them watch as it moves up and down while they breathe, as if they are rocking it to sleep.

4. Four Square Breathing

This practice is a useful tool for older children. Breathe in for a count of four. Hold the breath for a count of four. Breathe out for a count of four. Hold the breath for a count of four. Do several rounds and return to normal breathing.

5. Basic Breath Ball Practice

You can use a Hoberman sphere—a geodesic dome that can be folded and unfolded—to teach your child basic breath awareness. The toy can be referred to as a breath ball because the dome’s movements mimic the movements of breathing: as the dome folds inward, we imagine the out-breath contracting; as the dome expands, we imagine the lungs expanding on the in-breath.

1. Using both hands, gently hold the breathing ball in front of your belly.

2. Hold one square on opposite sides of the sphere’s surface.

3. Take a deep breath in. As your belly expands, let the ball expand with it. 

4. Breathe in fairly slowly, maybe holding momentarily at the top of the breath as you fully expand the ball.

5. As you breath out, allow the sphere to contract to its smallest size.

6. Repeat a few times. You might even count along in a rhythm.

Mindful Parenting Tips

By Elisha Goldstein and Stephanie Goldstein

It’s important to follow the oxygen mask principle: put your own mask on first, before you help your child. The more we discover how to be mindful ourselves, the more we can turn to mindful parenting strategies and appreciate our children’s capacity to be present in each moment.

There’s an inner skill set called for in parenting—an awareness of what is, what’s changing, and what matters going forward. In day-to-day life, take the time you need to notice your own feelings, pause before responding, and practice listening. 

7 Things Mindful Families Do Differently

1. Embrace Imperfection

You are going to make mistakes, you are going to hurt your children’s feelings, and you are not going to be able to show up in all the ways you want to or the ways your children want you to, but none of that makes you a bad parent—it only makes you a human one. When you can move into a place of acceptance of this you are able to shift into a greater ease and grace within yourself.

2. Listen with Curiosity

When we pause and listen to each other more in our lives, we can engage the experiences in our family with a growth mindset. We can see the struggles and triumphs as opportunities for learning and growth. Instead of judging each other, we can get better at recognizing when we don’t understand where the other person is coming from, lean in with curiosity and say, “tell me more.” Or we might try and stand in their shoes to understand their perspective by asking ourselves, “why might they be acting this way?”

3. Communicate Courageously

Being clear and honest with each other about what you need and how you feel is ultimately an act of kindness that creates trust and connection. This means showing up with our partners and kids with an open heart and an open mind. It builds on listening with curiosity and creates space for everyone to feel comfortable to share how they feel and what they need.

4. Practice Appreciation and Gratitude

While words of affirmation may or may not be your primary love language, we all want to be seen and appreciated and there’s a surprisingly simple way of doing this that can have huge benefits—intentionally practicing being appreciative and expressing gratitude to one another. By taking the time to acknowledge our kids or our partner when they empty the dishwasher or are ready on time, we can shift the culture of the household from demanding and frustrated to cooperative and grateful

5. Forgive Ourselves and Each Other

In practicing mindfulness we come to understand that our mistakes aren’t signs of failing at being a human. Instead, they are opportunities for learning about the inevitable pitfalls of life, what gets in our way and understanding the optimal route to get back into a space of balance and connection.

The simple phrase of “forgive, investigate and invite” can be enormously helpful. If we have transgressed, we can set the intention to “forgive” ourselves for this wrongdoing, understanding that we can’t change the past, remembering that we aren’t perfect, and realizing that we often make mistakes out of ignorance, confusion or upset feelings.

6. Practice Support and Generosity

Our kids are always watching us, learning how to be in the world and modeling our behaviors. So it’s important that we model this way of being in the world and include them in these acts as often as possible. Want some ideas? You can consider getting involved in service projects at a local school or organization. You can encourage your kids to make pictures or cards for their grandparents or someone who is ill. These small or large acts are the essential healing agent within the family system, our culture, and the world. Ultimately, connection is the cornerstone of well-being and it starts in the family.

7. Remember to Play and Have Fun

It seems silly to say that any of us would forget to have fun and enjoy each other but it’s more common than you think. Raising children is probably the most important job you will ever be tasked with and the pressure of raising good humans can be weighty. So much so that we can fall into a pattern of taking things too seriously and being overly focused on tasks (chores, homework, activities, etc. ) that we lose the enjoyment of being together.

10 Powerful Meditations for College Students

College life can be stressful, but that doesn't mean students should let stress take over their lives. By incorporating meditation into daily life and practicing meditation techniques for college students, students can not only reduce pressure, but also improve their memory, concentration, and ultimately their grades.

For many students, the college experience conjures up images of night parties, a frightened freshman 15, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. nine0003

However, no one said it had to be, and many students use college as an opportunity to explore new, healthy lifestyles they may not have experienced at home.

Those already accustomed to a healthy life can use their increased independence to tailor their healthy practices to their specific needs.

In this part, we will look at 10 Powerful Meditation Resources for College Students and related meditation tips. nine0003

College is an ideal time for students to maintain physical and emotional well-being and well-being. in other words, to find their zen. Technically, Zen is a specific mind-body practice that comes from Chinese Buddhism.

However, because of the emphasis on meditation, personal insight, and self-expression, Zen is often used as a collective term to describe a general sense of physical and mental balance.

Are mindfulness and meditation the same thing? nine0006

Although mindfulness and meditation are closely related, they are not the same. This section contains information about mindfulness and meditation, and the benefits of practicing both.

What is mindfulness?

Every day, students face distractions that prevent them from concentrating on the work they need to do. Mindfulness is the cure for these distractions that advances life today and focuses on what is happening. nine0003

Mindfulness not only increases awareness; it also helps people not to be overwhelmed and overreact to what they experience from one moment to the next.

Although meditation can help increase mindfulness, people can practice mindfulness with every daily activity. Whether students are studying, spending time with friends, or sitting in a classroom, they can practice mindfulness by simply conveying the meaning of everything they do.

What is meditation?

Meditation is a process in which people create a feeling of deep relaxation and calmness by calming their mind. This can be achieved by focusing on a specific point in the room, chanting a mantra, visualizing or focusing on the breath.

Although many people think that meditation is only done while sitting cross-legged on the floor in the lotus position, meditation can be practiced while standing, walking or lying down.

Meditation can be done alone, but is also related to yoga, tai chi and qigong.

Why meditation?

Meditation about connecting with the individual self. It offers space for personalization and there can be a transition between different types of meditation practices, depending on which methods are best for the individual.

Meditation can help us relax in the present moment. By allowing yourself to listen and feel deeply, meditation uncovers the little miracles that happen throughout the day. By simply being silent and accepting what is happening, we can become more focused and less anxious. nine0003

What are the benefits of meditation for students?

Meditation is a great way to improve your health. And the benefits of these practices can also affect your academic life. Here are a few ways students can benefit from meditation.

Relieve Stress and Anxiety

College attendance is a high-pressure environment in which some students may feel intimidated by the constant demands. Research shows that regular meditation can help reduce anxiety by lowering the levels of stress hormones in the body. nine0003

Increased focus

People who practice mindfulness and meditation tend to focus on tasks and avoid distractions. According to awareness and cognition studies that compared study participants who practiced meditation with those who did not, the mindfulness group had higher attention spans and cognitive flexibility.

Enhanced Memory

High academic achievement requires a sharp memory, and mindfulness practice can go a long way in improving students' ability to remember course material. nine0003

A study in the psychological sciences found that students who did mindfulness exercises had short-term memory. They were also less likely to be distracted and had improvements in verbal thinking.


Confident minds also enjoy finding inventive solutions to problems and puzzles. Good teachers usually appreciate students who are willing to think outside the box.

Meditation has been shown to enhance creativity and empower curious minds to stimulate innovation. nine0003

Possible reduction in drug abuse and addiction

Meditation often focuses on self-care, which improves self-esteem for some students and may lead to less addiction or reduced compulsions to addictive substances.

Increased confidence

Good physical and mental health, along with mindful practices such as meditation, can lead to increased self-esteem.

Types of meditation practices for students

The purpose of meditation is to be aware of the present moment. Sounds simple, but the monkey mind is strong and keeps pumping us into the past and the future. To stay centered, you can use a variety of meditation techniques and find one that works well for you:

#1 Breath Awareness

Meditators have a simple reason to focus on the breath: it anchors us in our bodies. When we hold our breath - every breath in, every breath out - we stay connected to the present moment. nine0003

Do not control your breathing, but be curious. Watch the air flow that flows through you. Feel the air hitting your nostrils, fill your lungs and exit. Whenever your mind wanders, use your breath as a means to take control of your mind again.

# 2 body scan

Start at the top of the head. Pay attention to sensations, tightness or resistance. Can you relax this area at all? Then train your forehead and again pay attention to the sensations and tensions to relax this area. nine0003

Move down slowly - focus on your eyes, cheeks, jaw, neck, shoulders, arms, chest, stomach, fingers - down to your toes. Like breathing meditation, this exercise strengthens you in the present moment and creates a systematic way to release the stress your body is holding onto in the past.

# 3 guided meditation

If you find it difficult to concentrate, try guided meditation. Guided meditations are available on apps (see recommendations below) and can be targeted at different goals such as sleep, concentration, happiness, self-confidence and relaxation. nine0003

Some have background music and sounds, others do not. Some include repetitions, others hear you silently. Try different ways to find a guided meditation that suits your personality and needs.

No matter which method you choose, remember to be gentle with yourself and start over. Your mind will wander. This is part of the process.

#4 Take a deep breath

Deep breathing helps to slow down the mind and heart rate, which can go a long way towards relieving stress. When students are afraid of an upcoming assignment or test, they can calm down by taking deep breaths to focus on the task at hand. nine0003

# 5 Keep a gratitude journal

When students are stressed about school, they may focus on those negative feelings that can eventually lead to depression and anxiety. Keeping a gratitude journal can cut through negativity and remind students of the good things that are happening in their lives despite the stress.

By taking a few minutes each day to write down what you are grateful for, students can break down the negative chatter in their heads and retreat to the present moment. nine0003

# 6 Attention to nature

Nature is everywhere, but often people ignore it because they rush through their busy days. When students go to class, they are probably thinking about their work and don't appreciate the things, trees, grass, and sun on campus.

By paying attention to these things and appreciating them, they can enjoy the moment instead of worrying about what to do next.

# 7 Do One at a Time

Students often do more than one task at a time. However, this practice can overload the mind and increase stress. nine0003

Ultimately, this results in students being less efficient and effective. Instead, students can become aware of their work by prioritizing tasks and focusing on one thing at a time.

# 8 Visualize

Athletes, actors and leaders use visualization to see themselves as successful, which helps them overcome feelings of self-doubt and fear.

Students can also incorporate this mindfulness exercise into their day by watching them take a test, get a good paper grade, or improve their GPA. This will help them build their trust. nine0003

# 9 Keep your expectations under control

If you didn't believe that meditation could lead to greater well-being, you wouldn't care. Follow these expectations.

Expectations of what will happen when you begin to sit can be a major obstacle. Some people think that they will experience transcendent states of mind, others expect immediate peace of mind, and yet others believe that when their third eye is opened, they will develop supernatural powers. nine0003

How to start a meditation practice in college

College challenges meditation: crowded dorms, crowded schedules. Even thoughts are full of thoughts, plans, memories and stressors. Buddhists call this "monkey mind." Imagine a monkey swaying from branch to branch and not wanting to rest. This monkey is our brain.

A monkey needs a special place to calm down. It does not have to be completely calm, but it should be peaceful. If your roommates or family members don't rest, try noise canceling headphones. nine0003

Find a quiet, comfortable place

If you have a special place to practice meditation, that's great. If not, a quiet place is enough.

It is very helpful to find a place to practice where you are sure that you will not be disturbed for those few minutes. It could be your own meditation nook at home, a quiet room at work or school, on the street, or some other special place.

Some colleges have meditation rooms, or you can find a quiet work space in the library or conference room where there are no books. You can even find a meditation group on your campus through your wellness center or interfaith group. Meditating in nature can also lead to a calming and deepening of your practice. nine0003

Choose a meditation posture that suits you.

You don't need to sit for hours in the perfect lotus position, you need to find a posture and position that will be stable for your chosen period of meditation.

Relax your shoulders and release any tension you notice in your body, especially in your neck, jaw and other magnets for physical tension, but keep your back straight.

Whether you are sitting in a chair or on a cushion, your straight back and orientation maintain awareness and prevent drowsiness. nine0003

Sit comfortably

Sit comfortably to begin meditation. Meditators usually sit in a chair or cross-legged on the floor, although meditation is also possible while lying down, standing, or walking.

When practicing sitting meditation, make sure you sit in a relaxed but upright position so that your head rests on your spine.

Decide how long you want to meditate each day.

A quarter of an hour is ideal, but you can start with intervals of as little as 5 to 10 minutes. Before you begin, dedicate yourself to the practice. As you meditate, set your intention to be physically still by carefully noting any type of tension that arises in your body. nine0003

Don't give up!

Meditation can be frustrating at first, and it's easy to give up if you feel you're not benefiting or taking too long to learn. However, try to stick to it!

Try to meditate for shorter periods of time and develop over longer distances. The benefits of meditation will show over time, but only if you keep working on it.
