You can give your children this gift by meditating with them. If youre new to meditation, it may be intimidating at first, but dont worry - your child is likely a natural.

This is good news for anyone interested in teaching their children how to relax and stay calm in stressful situations; skills they can carry well into adulthood. Meditation is something everyone in the family can benefit from practicing, and its something you can do together.

What is Meditation, Mindfulness & Guided Imagery?

Meditation produces a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind. When you meditate, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress.

Some research suggests that meditation may help people manage anxiety disorders, depression, high blood pressure, pain and sleep problems.

There are also emotional benefits of meditation, including:
* Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
* Building skills to manage your stress
* Increasing self-awareness
* Focusing on the present
* Reducing negative emotions

Mindfulness is a form of meditation rooted in spiritual teachings in which you focus your full attention on the present moment. You acknowledge what you feel and experience, and accept it, without judgment or criticism.

Recent studies indicate that children who practice mindfulness show:

* 24% increase in positive social behaviors
* 24% decrease in aggression
* 15% improvement in math scores
* Reduction and prevention of depression-like symptoms
* Improved classroom behavior, including self control, paying attention and showing respect for others


Guided imagery is a way to access the images of the unconscious mind to help resolve problems and to gain greater insights and deeper understanding regarding a specific illness, issue, or situation. It may or may not be interactive and it usually uses prompted or suggested imagery.

Please note: In some cases, meditation can worsen symptoms associated with certain mental and physical health conditions. Be sure to consult your health care provider before meditating if you or your family members have any of these conditions.

As a key exercise in the mastery of meditation you will find that repetition brings a higher sense of peace and security.

Latest reviews of Meditations for Kids app for iPhone and iPad

No sound!
App doesnt work. Theres no sound!
LOVE!
I started using this app to help my 4 year old twins relax at bedtime. I am amazed at how the meditation practice really has helped and especially with this app. Weve used the app at bedtime for 3 weeks now and if they dont fall asleep during the meditation exercises, its within 10 minutes after. Bedtime has never been this easy! They like it, look forward to this new bedtime routine and hopefully have these skills as regular practice as they get older.
Zen for the Under 10
Meditation is the path to the stillness and inner fulfillment we all seek. This beautiful app delivers this gifts, and all its rewards, to children.
Doesnt work!
This app doesnt work at all. I hit the play icon, it appears to be playing... but no sound comes out. Ive tried all the different options, tried restarting the app several times. Nothing. Very disappointing.
My kids love this
Im so happy that there is an app like this to help kids learn the power if mindfulness. Ive seen instant improvements, they love the voice and ask me to play it every night before they go to bed.
