We just added a new addition to our family’s bedtime routine—Zen Den, from Cosmic Kids. These short YouTube videos teach my kids mindfulness and wind them down at the end of the day.
I discovered these one Saturday when I was a stressed out mess. I personally needed them, and we binged watched six until I calmed myself down. I’m learning in each, let alone my kids. Some highlights…
Thoughts are like bubbles, just pop the ones that aren’t serving you
Instead of feeling ‘want-y,’ take 10 deep breaths
When someone is mean to you, instead of being upset, become curious about why they are so unhappy
I love that my kids are demanding to meditate. Thank you, screentime.
