Teaching simple meditation techniques for children does lots of great things. You teach them focus, mental discipline, patience, resilience and how to slow down and access their own mind. It’s the start of an inner life for your kids. And… perhaps best of all …. healthy family activities bring your family together in the very best ways.
Your kids may remember these moments as some of the best times with you.
