Mindfulness in its simplest form is paying attention, being present, and focused in the moment to experience the most out of life. We chat with teacher Sarah Fuller, the founder of Mindful Kids Melbourne about supporting kids through mindfulness practices to get through challenging times and navigate all emotions.
Sarah discusses how mindfulness enables children to tune into their bodies, the emotions they are feeling, and how to calm their mind and body with simple tools like their breathing. As an educator, she believes teaching children about mindfulness and promoting positive wellbeing from a young age leads to positive outcomes and the development of resilience and problem-solving strategies that they will take with them throughout their lives.
Positive-Psychology Mindfulness practices can help kids build problem-solving strategies and have a positive impact on their brain and neural pathways by teaching them to self-regulate an array of emotions by using their five senses.
Mindfulness enables children to pay attention to the present moment without judgement and to be aware of the range of emotions not just happy or sad ones. Positive-Psychology mindfulness practices allow children and parents to fill their cups and experience the small moments of simple joys.
