Growing bodies need additional sleep, and this sleep meditation can help children learn to relax their minds and bodies in preparation for a good night’s rest. Dr. Gail Gross guides children gently through a series of breathing exercises that help them learn to calmly breathe in joy and happiness, and breathe out anxiety and fears. By the end, they are better prepared to set aside the day’s upsets and troubles and settle into a deeply relaxed, optimal night of sleep. In today’s stressful world, meditation can provide the modern man, woman, and yes, even child, with many mental, emotional, and physical benefits. By creating a consistent daily practice of one or more of the meditation exercises provided by Dr. Gross, you open yourself to a healthier and more balanced life. Meditation throws more blood to the prefrontal cortex and helps circulation, thus meditation helps you process information better, increases memory, reduces stress, and enhances learning.
