Our last free relaxing body-scan meditation was so popular we thought we’d produce another one for you!
This short, guided kindness meditation encourages children to feel kindness towards themselves and others.
It is only 3 1/2 minutes long and is suitable for use with most children of around the age of 7 and above.
It’s a really gentle introduction to loving kindness meditation, which has been shown to increase positive emotions, feelings of empathy and general wellbeing.
This type of meditation helps children to think good thoughts about themselves and others, helping to introduce them to the idea that giving and receiving kindness is a positive experience.
Depending on the child(ren) you are using it with, you might like to talk through the ideas beforehand if necessary (for example thinking good things about themselves and others). This will help them to get the most out of the meditation.
We hope you enjoy!
