What age should children start to meditate?

I get asked this question often, and it’s an easy answer! When they start to sit on your lap and look through books with you, then I suggest to start adding some age appropriate mindfulness and meditation activities. The internet and social media are loaded with ideas and there are videos on YouTube to get you started, however don’t overthink these activities! I’ve put together an easy, quick list of activities to get you started!

1) Nature walk – walking meditation and listening to animal and nature sounds. 2) Pinwheels! Have your child blow on a pinwheel and count with then! This is simple breathwork! 3) Meditate together as a family and set the timer for 5min to start! See how you feel, then you can always meditate longer! 4) Listening to sound bowls! Buy some small ones or watch a YouTube video! 5) Art! Have your child color, draw, or paint! Art can be a fantastic mindfulness and meditation activity.
