Mindfulness for Children | Meditation App
Imagine more presence and harmony in your kids at home and in the classroom! The meditations in this app are used in schools in Denmark and getting great results! Meditation can help our young ones to calm down and improve focus and concentration. In our overstimulated environment today, kids need to relax as much as parents and teachers.
The Mindfulness for Children app can be used for daily relaxation for all of our kids. If you are dealing with ADHD, this app can be a priceless tool. Kids will love learning that they can have an impact on their well-being, calm down, and get more out of life.
Doctors can be inclined to prescribe more and more medications when our kids encounter social anxieties and their health-related symptoms. That can become a lifelong practice. In many cases all that is needed is a quiet room, a soothing voice to guide them, and the sounds of nature to soothe stresses away. This is a practice that can carry them along a smoother path throughout life.
As you will hear in the videos below, the narration and sounds are high quality. A calm and reassuring voice guides the way to a completely relaxed state of mind and body. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate when introducing this concept to kids. You might listen together in the beginning. It is suggested that you allow openings to dialogue while letting kids decide how this impacts them, on their own. The videos are only clips from the full meditations that range from 5 to 24 minutes long. There are 4 versions of the Goodnight meditation. These are enhanced with various sounds from nature. Sounds include waves, birds, forest sounds and streams.
Parents: There is an option to see more meditations when you open the app. Please check out our Parent Section at the top of the page for videos with tips to be sure you are doing the buying 🙂 Don’t miss the developer interview below! Learn of their reasoning behind the app and other suggestions.

What was the initial inspiration for your app?
We are firm believers that if every child started meditating at an early age the world would certainly be a different place!
So we made this ”teaching tool” – A parent’s and teacher’s delight!

Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
Pia Holgersen wrote the meditations/body scans after working with children, introducing them to mindfulness. Some of the children asked for meditations to use at home, after school. With inspiration from Susan Kaiser, Dr. Dan Siegel and from what Pia work with as a trained psychomotor therapist, Pia wrote three body scans and Jannik decided to make the App “Mindfulness for children”, so the children could have easy access to the meditations. Our original idea with this app was, and still is, that children should be taught by a trained mindfulness teacher and then use the app to practice at home, and preferably with their parents.
