Beautiful picturebook stories showing how children can use mindfulness in their lives
Spending a few minutes every day can help you to feel calm and relaxed. In this story, Sam helps his friends, Lenny and Selina, to notice their breathing and use calming breaths to help deal with feelings of pain, worries and nervousness.
Mindfulness practices (exercises) are integrated into each story, and expanded on in the 'Notes to Parents and Teachers' section at the end of the books. Readers are invited to PAUSE at various points in the story to notice their own present moment experience.
The four stories in the 'Mindful Me' series explore how a mindful attitude to life can enhance enjoyment, promote a sense of calm and confidence, and provide young people with a 'friend for life'.
The books can be used at home or in the classroom, for storytime or as part of the PSHCE curriculum.
