Knowledge Bytes

The growth of smart phones, tablets and apps, can mean that children exist in a fast-paced ‘swiping’ culture where they can find it hard to stop and be still. Research shows that mindfulness techniques have a positive impact on the health of children and can decrease anxiety, stress, reactivity and unwanted behaviour. It can also improve sleep, self-esteem and help children better manage their emotions.

This latest Knowledge Byte from Meantóir, outlines the ‘What’ and ‘Why’ of Mindfulness with young children and includes 5 meaningful and fun exercises that you can incorporate into your daily routine in pre-school, afterschool or at home.
