In a busy world, take time to Breathe!

We all experience some level of anxiety in our lives, and sadly, so do many of our children. As parents, we want our children to feel safe, happy, and connected to their surroundings. Our family is familiar with meditation and yoga as a method for calming children and encouraging coping strategies, so the opportunity to explore a new CD for our practice was welcome. We’ve listened to this in the car and at home, and both my 9 and 5 year old were singing along.

 

The 21 tracks  from Breathe In total almost an hour of music. You might think that a meditation CD is about repitition, but most of these songs sound more like what you’d hear in a children’s music class. My favorite is “Monkey Brain,” which encourages children to be in the moment in a way which they can understand. I envision us playing this CD, and especially individual songs, when my children are in need of some confidence boosting, or calming words.

 

Lianne’s website offers a lyric sheet, and each song in the CD booklet lists an accompanying mindful activity or mindful moment. This CD is truly more than just music; children who can use some downtime and some time with their thoughts will do well to spend some time with Breathe In.
