Finding Calm in Nature: A Guide for Mindful Kids
“Let nature be your teacher when your feelings are tangled up in knots."
One way to feel better when we are hurting is to spend time outside. Being in nature is good for both our bodies and our minds.
Each chapter of this practical guide explores a different element of nature and connects it with a mindfulness prompt designed to help kids manage their feelings. From dandelions to spider webs, children will uncover the lessons nature teaches about embracing a growth mindset, the benefits of living in community, and the transformative power of noticing the beauty around them. Breathing exercises, stretching, practicing mindfulness, and keeping a nature notebook are just some of the tools introduced to kids to equip them to navigate their feelings as they spend time outdoors.
