Practicing mindfulness from a young age creates a great foundation for consciousness and awareness in adulthood.
We are born with adversity. At every stage of our lives, we face certain challenges. From when we are born, to being a child, then a teenager, and finally an adult. Developing relationships, navigating school, and exercising independence are all stress-inducing.
The basics of meditation and mindfulness practices can help us in life through all the different obstacles we might face – reducing stress and inducing happiness.
Mindfulness techniques highlight cultivating focused attention to the present moment and learning to treat our thoughts without judgment but instead with acceptance. It has become popular as a practice in adults but also teaching it to toddlers and children.
Practicing and learning about mindfulness early on in life sets us up for an aware and purposeful future. It teaches us many fundamental skills that we can carry on into adulthood – many skills that people only learn later on, which might set them back in coping with various situations.
