Great strategy to practice mindfulness 👇🏽If you struggle to focus on your breath, or you are looking to practice mindfulness through breathing with a child, a fun activity could be creating a snow globe, or a “glitter jar”.
Find a mason jar, fill with water and add glitter. Start by looking through the jar while the glitter is at the bottom. What do you see, is it clear? Is the water still? After a few deep breaths here, shake the jar as the glitter swirls around the jar. Now as the glitter swirls around, begin to breathe. Slow, deep breaths until the glitter settles back to the bottom of the jar.
If you are using this activity with a child, you are able to adjust the teachings of mindfulness in an age appropriate way. For more mindfulness activities click here: bit.ly/2WAwO5V
