A Mindful Activity Jar gives kids a go-to when they’re looking for something fun to do. Decorating the jar and determining what activities go inside challenges them to think about the kinds of projects, hobbies and games they truly enjoy.
Whenever kids are feeling frustrated, angry or anxious, squeezing a stress ball can help them notice difficult emotions and release them.
Kindness is at the core of everything we do at Mindful Littles. By practicing kindness to oneself, we in turn are able to spread kindness in the world. Even the smallest acts of kindness have a ripple effect into the world, and can have such a great impact for both the giver and the receiver.
For many of us, the “Shelter-in-Place” orders have created highs and lows and everything in between. As we continue making daily choices on how to cope with and survive this new reality, cultivating a positive perspective can have a great impact on our physical and mental well-being.
While it feels as though there is very little that we can control in our lives right now, we can choose to respond with peace for ourselves and for the world around us. When faced with life’s stressors, it takes courage to not react, but to respond with peace.
