How to have ‘Mindful Mornings’
Mornings can often be a mad rush of getting up, getting ready and getting out the door.
So our preschoolers at Guardian St Kilda South have recently been starting their day doing some mindfulness, followed by yoga. This is a lovely way for them to calm and prepare themselves for a learning day ahead.
This is also something we encourage you to recreate at home – for you and your little ones. Because a little bit if mindfulness in the morning goes a long way throughout the day.
During this time of COVID-19 our children choose a space to themselves and a coloured felt shape to sit on which helps them to practice mindfulness at a safe, social distance.
How do you and your child start your day? Might you find a few moments for some deep breaths, a few stretches and take the time to simply ‘be’?
