1 Minute Meditations for Kids
One of my favorite mom-hacks is Headspace's kid meditations. They take 1 minute and are adorable. "Take your favorite stuff animal, put it on your chest, watch it move up and down."
Personally medtiation has had the biggest impact on my life of any of the healthy habits I've adopted. I understand what being present means, and my head does not swirl in thoughts overthinking life constantly. (I mean, I still overthink things, but no where close to before).
I've loved sharing this practice with my four-year-old, Chloe. We use this to wind down after the day and in SOS situations where she's having a breakdown. It melts my heart everytime she says, 'Mom, can we meditate?' It's honestly the best use of a minute you can do with your kids. Try it!
