Children have a lot of ‘to-do’s’ on their plate and can feel the pressure of wanting to achieve. They can find the on-switch, but it is sometimes more challenging to find the ‘pause-button’. There is growing evidence that mindfulness has a positive effect on learning to calm down, focus, increase creativity, self-confidence and compassion.
The method of Eline Snel is an eight-week mindfulness training for children aged from 8-12 years old. During the training, 45 minutes per week, children learn to stabilise, focus and shift their attention using a kind, attentive attitude. They become familiar with their inner-world, thoughts and feelings without attaching judgements. They learn to deal with turmoil with calmness and to acknowledge troublesome thoughts. And above all: they learn to be kind, to themselves and to others.
