MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is the state of being aware of what is happening in the present moment. One tends to attentively analyse one’s actions and reactions when one is mindful. When kids are encouraged to practise mindfulness, they can understand and express how they feel in different scenarios. Mindfulness activities for TIPS kindergarten children include various breathing exercises and listening exercises which involve children attentively listening to sounds around them. Guided imagination exercises encourage kids to imagine themselves as a tree or an animal or anything. This improves children’s imaginative powers. In addition to these, ‘what are you feeling now?’ conversations help kids express what they are feeling in the moment.
