Kids are incredible. Their little brains soak up information so quickly, and their curiosity allows them to be more open and accepting to new ideas and concepts.

If you have been getting into meditation or considering trying it for yourself, you can also share the practice with your children. It's a wonderful way to teach them patience and also to give them a tool to release stress. As with anything, the younger you start, the easier it is later on.

Check out some of theses resources for guided meditations for kids.

Headspace for Kids

"It’s almost as though meditation was designed for kids. They just ‘get it’ – there is this elasticity and freedom in their minds which allows them to be present in the moment and free from any external thoughts or pressures. By introducing meditation and mindfulness at an early age, not only can we build on this and help nurture their mind development, but we are also making meditation simple and accessible."

—Andy Puddicombe, Co-Founder of Headspace
