Feel calm and good: Meditation for Kids 40 Activities to Manage Emotions, Ease Anxiety, and Stay Focused by Tejal V. Patel

So we have had many days now of being inside and tempers and moods may vary.  Are your children struggling?  If they are (and even if they are not), this illustrated book is filled with good mindful activities.  As the subtitle notes, the activities could help children to “manage emotions, ease anxiety and stay focused,”  things that all of us could use really. Chapters include Rise and Shine, Focus Your Mind, Open Your Heart, Explore Your Imagination, and Relax and Let Go.  There are then things to try.  The book also includes a helpful introduction for adults.

Each activity is explained clearly and suggestions are given for when an activity may be helpful and why it works.  My impression is that doing some of these activities with children, especially now, could be very helpful.  Adults could try them too.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.  I will be using this title.
