Are you a parent or caregiver that often feels like their lifestyle seems chaotic, hectic, or unmanageable? Do you and/or your child have the feelings of stress, anxiety, or worry? In this course we will explore different techniques of mindfulness through breathing, movement, and other mindful activities to help you and your child live a calmer lifestyle.
The Mindfulness Matters Course offers parents hands on tools to easily make mindful practices part of daily family life. Discover how mindfulness for kids and families can build stronger connections, playful and fun. You will learn a wide variety of tools and techniques to help you feel confident in introducing mindfulness to your child. Practices for Parents are included, to support parents in modeling the behaviour you wish you see in your child. A variety of ideas to support parents with daily mindfulness are shared such as journaling, intention setting, simple breathing, mindful movement and much more. Parents will learn the benefits of mindfulness for themselves and for their child so they are able to gain a greater understanding of the positive impact these simple practices can have on their child’s healthy development.
In the course you will be introduced to The Mindful Corner concept and benefits, with easy ways to make mindfulness accessible for the whole family. The Mindful Corner may be used with children at a variety of ages and developmental stages, and be easily adapted according to what works best for your child. The three mindful corner components of: breathwork, movement and mindful activities are fully explained and demonstrated so parents have hands-on tools for supporting their child when they are dealing with stress, anxiety, worry, fear and other big feelings that are a part of everyday life. A series of tools and video demonstrations will support parents to see how fun it can be to share breathing, movement and mindfulness with their child.
