Mindfulness and meditation could be an important resource for you and your child. These activities can be helpful for coping with stress and anxiety and sometimes just a relaxing break. The Cosmic Kid site also has fun yoga videos! Physical activity is also an important stress reliever.

Cosmic Kids Zen Den – (Mindfulness and yoga) Jamie is the host of these fun videos. The boys love her!

Mindyeti (Mindfulness) – This has a lot of different mindfulness activities. Most are about 4-7 minutes.

YoMind (Mindfulness for upper elementary) – I’ve done these with our 4th and 5th graders (younger boys can do these, too!) I usually skip the intro part.
