How meditation helps children

Each child is different but here are some of the issues that meditating can help with:

- Improving sleep

- Letting go of stress

- Reducing anxiety 

- Relaxing the body and mind

- Grounding excess physical energy

- Balancing energy
- Building self esteem

- Increasing happiness

- Connecting to others by developing kindness and compassion

- Enhancing their ability to deal with difficult situations (resilience)

- Processing difficult emotions such as anger, worry, grief and sadness

If a child learns techniques to process stress and negative emotions now, they help to prevent the accumulation of acute stress and blockages that so often cause problems in adulthood.
