They are always watching, why not show them the correct way?
Teaching my kids yoga and meditation is so important to me. Learning that by taking deep breaths, you can slow your heart rate and calm your mind.
It’s so much easier with children because Children naturally exercise mindfulness, a key component of meditation, because they have less mental barriers, biases, and pre-determined beliefs that allows them to experience a pure state of mindfulness.
If you start them young I believe they will know it’s there in a time of need. I sometimes forget it’s there when I am in that moment when it is fully needed, but if I start a habit of doing it every morning or evening before bed I’m hoping it will stick with them.
