Many successful people have attributed their success to the practice of Meditation. How great it would be if we could pass on this amazing skill to our kids at a young age? Listen to know how.
So, what is meditation? It is an ancient Indian method of calming our minds, looking inwards, and trying to be in the present. It leads to tranquility and purification from the negative state of our minds.
A mere 10-15 minutes of meditation each day can bring many positive results. It can be practiced anywhere and anytime. The first stage of meditation is to stop distractions and make the mind clearer and more lucid.
Let’s talk about why is it necessary to introduce our kids to meditation and the benefits:
For example take the story of “The Hare & The tortoise” which has been quite popular since our childhood. We all know, towards the end of the story Tortoise kept going slowly but steadily, and, after a time, passed the place where the Hare was sleeping. But the Hare slept on very peacefully; and when at last he did wake up, the Tortoise was near the goal. You can retell this story to engage the kids by saying the Hare had to rest in the middle of the race because it did not practice meditation which made the Hare get tired easily.
Parents should try and join them in this process. Calming the mind might prove difficult in the beginning. Varied thoughts keep popping up. Greet the thoughts, acknowledge them and then allow them to move away and continue to focus on the breath.
