Relaxation and Mindfulness

With so much going on in their lives, children need to find time to simply unwind, put their feet up, and have some all important 'me-time'. We take a look at the educational and psychological benefits of encouraging children to relax.

Help your child to relax:

  • Create a comfy space for your child to relax in – throw in cushions, teddy bears, pictures, pastel colours, a fish tank…
  • Encourage your child to tell you if they are tired or do not feel like doing an activity you have planned
  • Do not overload your child with too many out-of-school activities
  • Before bedtime, help your child to relax with a warm bath, bedtime story or a guided meditation CD
  • Yoga is an excellent way to help kids relax and concentrate on their breathing and posture
