I have instilled meditation practices early on in my children and have also encouraged my nephews to practice it.
I started with visual meditation where I cuddle up in bed with them at the end of the day. I guide them soothingly through a relaxing scenario which puts them off to sleep. I sometimes also do loving-kindness meditation where we think about everyone in our lives and wish good health and happiness to them, one by one!
Recently I purchased some meditation CDs and I must say they were excellent. I rather miss not guiding the meditation myself though but these CDs are effective, particularly if you are unsure how to conduct mediation or your child is older. These meditation CDs are definitely the easy way to get your child into meditation and live smarter.
Here are some of the best CDs I have come across. I prefer CDs because I do not allow devices in bedrooms so I find the CD player option works best.
