Welcome to Jubilee's Mindfulness Zone
Mindfulness is simply… noticing what is happening right now.
Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what you see, smell, taste and maybe even the emotions you feel in your body. Mindfulness is also noticing what your mind is doing.
10 Mindfulness Activities to do together
- Positive meal times. Healthy foods and enjoyable meal times help children feel better and more connected to their family. Serve plenty of veggies and fruit, choose water over sugary or caffeine-filled drinks, and enjoy a nice conversation instead of being distracted by the TV or mobile phone.
- Physical activity. Children feel better and more settled when they have an opportunity to burn off some energy. Children should get at least 60 minutes a day, but any amount helps.
- Sleep. A tired child is easily frustrated by simple, daily tasks. Rule of thumb: 6- to 12-year-olds need 9 to 12 hours/day and 13- to 18-year-olds need 8 to 10 hours/day.
- A regular routine. Routines help children feel more secure and in control. They need meals and snacks around the same time each day and a predictable bedtime routine. They also do best when they wake up at the same time each day.
