Create a Zen Den

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.
