Coping with Pain Using Imagery and Deep Breathing

Benefits of Mindfulness

Childhood is filled with scrapes, bruises, and falls. When a minor injury occurs, children usually shed a few tears, receive a hug and a bandage, and promptly move on. But for some children, pain is a way of life. When a child suffers from something more serious, like cancer, burns, or pediatric arthritis, the management of pain becomes a primary, ongoing concern for both the child and the adults in the child’s life.

Exercising the Mind and Body: Kids, Sports, and Mindfulness

Benefits of Mindfulness

Athletic activities are a wonderful way for kids to have fun, get in shape, and connect with friends.  Sport performance is not only physical in nature, but it has been suggested that performance is also a highly mental process.  Many coaches and parents spend a great deal of time and attention on the physical aspects of sports and on skill training.  Little, if any time or energy is placed on the mental aspect of athletic performance.

Mindfulness Activities for Anxious Children

Practicing Mindfulness

Childhood and adolescence are marked by rapid change, growth and challenge—and they are often periods of high risk for developing anxiety. This is especially true today, when children of all ages are immersed in technology and constantly bombarded with stimuli of all kinds. When fears and anxious feelings become difficult to manage, one effective tool that may help your child is mindfulness.
