Research shows that the family as a whole can benefit from the effects of mindfulness including:

  • More resilience in day-to-day life
  • Improved focus
  • Better understanding of their emotions
  • A sense of calm
  • More positive thinking – promoting kindness and gratitude

The activities are split into four categories, beautifully represented by four characters. Thinky is on hand to help you improve your concentration which can positively affect their experience and progression at school. Giggles is here to help our children focuses on the happy, positive aspects of life while Sparky encourages us to be a little bit silly everynow and then. Finally, you can enjoy some relaxation and zen time with Snug to de-stress at the end of the day.

Lily and I have a had a wonderful time trying out some of the activites. OUr favourite one is a concentration activity from Thinky. Activity 61 is about concentrating on balance by placing your hands togetehr above your head and standing on one leg. We had a challeneg to see who could balance the longest…Lily was good, but mummy definetly rocked this one! Eitehr way, we both did well and had a sticker each as a reward!
