It is designed to introduce them to relaxation and simple stress-management techniques incorporating visualisations, muscle relaxations and affirmations.
Children imagine they are the heroes and go on relaxing journeys in their mind so enhancing their creativity and imagination. These techniques are proven to help encourage mental and emotional well being and provide tools for children who suffer from sleeping problems, anxiety and worries.
I found myself breathing more deeply and relaxing greatly whilst I listened and my children loved these.
If you haven’t come across Relax Kids they are a fabulous company, they provide relaxation sessions for children directly through the teachers they train up and through the wonderful products they sell; Cds, stickers, posters, affirmations cards and so much more. They span the age range too. (and they were once on Dragons Den!) Do visit their lovely Relax Kids website to find out more. As a psychotherapist i am aware that increasing numbers of kids are uptight and stressed. Let’s help them chill them out!
