Christmas can be a stressful time. With so much to remember to do and buy, it can often feel like we’re not enjoying it as much as we could. Sometimes, and often without realising it, this stress and angst can also be passed onto children.
To combat this, it might be worth exploring mindfulness. Mindfulness is a brilliant technique to instil in children; with suggestions that it can help children to focus, as well as to take better notice of their own thoughts and be more aware of what is happening around them.
So, whether you work with children or have children or grandchildren of your own, we have a few ideas to help you (and the children in your life) to have a more mindful Christmas this year.
