This free mindfulness for children exercise focuses on mindfulness of feelings, thoughts and mental objects – for young children and is best delivered, after you yourself have experienced it. So, before teaching this to the children please take the time to do the exercise yourself. When we teach from ‘insight’ we teach from a place of true knowledge and understanding.
When you look at this picture – where do you ‘feel’ your emotions and sensations?
For me, I feel emotion within my face the strongest (even within my eyes) . Then I notice the sensations flowing down my throat and into my stomach. And I feel sensations traveling through my arms and into my hands.
What automatic thoughts pop into your head?
For me, it’s things like ‘Awwwwww, way too cute’ and ‘one day you will be mine’
