“Bullying is when you tease a person, call them names, hate them and leave them out of your games. Bullies also take your lunch or your lunch money. Sometimes they ignore you exist. Some people are bullied because of their skin colour.” – Brian

If you have been bullied you know how bad it feels. It can leave you feeling hurt, scared, embarrassed, and lonely and even not wanting to go back to school. Bullies hit, kick, punch and push to hurt people, they also use words to call names, threaten, tease and scare them. Bullying is a big problem in our schools and sometimes even in our homes. It breaks down our self-esteem as we are battered by unkind words or angry fists. Bullying is never right. No matter what the situation is, we all have a choice as to how we treat other people.

Mindfulness has an extraordinary capacity to build a strong body, mind and spirit in ourselves as adults, as well as in our children. Science has told us that it can help to protect against stress, anxiety, depression, illness and pain, ease the symptoms of autism and ADHD, improve academic performance and social relationships, as well as expand the capacity to experience positive emotions.

Mindfulness is about stepping back and seeing thoughts and feelings come and go, without judgement, but with a relaxed mind, fully focused on the present moment.

Children are wonderfully present in what they do, but as life picks up speed, the capacity to experience that calm, strengthening stillness can become more difficult to access. The sooner we can encourage the little people in our lives towards mindfulness, the greater their capacity for mindful presence will be. A regular mindful practice will ensure that existing neural connections are strengthened and new ones established.

Mindfulness for children generally works best it’s kept to about five minutes or less. Of course, if they’re able to go for longer, then brilliant – go with that. Ready to play?
