What is Mindfulness?



Mindfulness involves training our attention to experience the present moment with greater curiosity and kindness. This helps us to not only appreciate what is going well, but to respond more skillfully to life’s inevitable challenges.


Being mindful is the opposite of rushing or multitasking. When you’re mindful, you’re taking your time. You’re focusing in a relaxed, easy way.


Mindfulness happens naturally sometimes. Let’s say you’re getting ready to take a shot in netball. You carefully position your feet. You look up at the net and feel the ball in your hands. Taking your time, you raise your arms. You tune out all the other sounds and take your shot. Swoosh — yes! Nicely done.


That calm focus, that way of paying attention to what you’re doing, taking your time, taking it easy — that’s you being mindful! And being mindful just helped you take your best shot.


How does mindfulness benefit children?


Although most of the studies into mindfulness are based on adults, early research suggests that children may benefit in similar ways. When we teach mindfulness to children, we equip them with tools to build self-esteem, manage stress, and skillfully approach challenges. Research suggests that mindfulness also has a positive impact on academic skills and performance, as well as general wellbeing.

Be the Pond | Cosmic Kids Zen Den - Mindfulness for kids

A short mindfulness video for kids. I explain in a kid-friendly way that we are separate from our feelings. They come and go - and we can observe them - without getting swept up by them. There's a really clever way of remembering this: our mind is like a pond full of fish.
