Did you check out my previous post with GoodNites? Well, this is Part 2 of this series and today I’ll be sharing with you Michele Kambolis, Child & Family, Therapist tips on Mindfulness. She was like an angel, she is everything I inspire to be and once the twins are in JK this September, I can’t wait to read her book, Generation Stressed. Below, please have a look at Michele’s advice and the method’s to help our kids for a better bed time.
Mindfulness is a form of meditation that allows you to be fully present, aware of where you are, and what you are doing. Countless studies encourage its practice among children, showing that it can bolster both physical and mental health. Mindfulness is associated with decreases in anxiety and improvements in focus, self-confidence, memory, compassion and connection with others. For children facing nighttime wetting, mindfulness can help minimize worry and feelings of stress, increase quality of sleep, and encourage a sense of well-being and self-acceptance.
As we all get ready for back-to-school, a whole host of stressors can affect kids and in all kinds of ways. I hope you love Michele’s tips as much as I do. I hope it will help you find ways you are looking for to manage nighttime wetting at home and getting back into a healthy bedtime routine.
