Mindfulness with Everyday Objects

Mindfulness isn’t just a buzzword; it is actually a powerful tool for both adults and children to reduce stress and help with emotional regulation.  Although the techniques can be very effective, they can be difficult to explain to children.  This article from Offspring shows us how to teach mindfulness to children using everyday objects, such as stuffed animals, an ice cube, an apple, and even a Hershey’s Kiss. The activities come from Susan Kaiser Greenland who wrote The Mindful Child. Visit Offspring.lifehacker.com to learn more about these techniques and see videos that demonstrate the activities.
