Visualization Exercises for Kids

We all want our children to happy and healthy. To do this we enhance them with skills which help them in life.

Visualization has been used with adults for ages to do things like reduce stress and heal bodies.

Children can learn these techniques to and benefit too! Here are some of the benefits.

These are a few of the main benefits that come from using visualization techniques.

  • Reduced stress
  • Help in dealing with anxiety, fear and phobias
  • Improve imagination and creativity

So what are some of these techniques that you and your children can use? To begin, create a space that is conducive to a stress-free and happy environment. Music, lighting and a comfy spot to sit can go a long way in kick-starting the visualization process.

Next, have your child close their eyes. Try to paint for them a peaceful scenario in which they can easily see themselves. Once they can do that, help them to breath at a steady slow rate.

Encourage them to visualize their stress melting away from them. Have them express how that feels. As they become more adept at visualization, have them come up with their own creative imagery.

Teach them to use these techniques whenever they are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed or just feel like relaxing. Some children may find it easier to express themselves through drawings. This can have a similar effect. Have them draw out whatever they visualize.

These quiet moments will soon become a bright spot in the day, and all who participate will find themselves more centered and in peace. Who wouldn't want that?

The pressures of the world we live in are mounting. Unfortunately for our young ones, this trend doesn't appear to be letting up. Give them an edge for coping with life's ups and downs.

Using visualization with kids can help with everyday anxiety and stresses. Having visualization sessions together is a nice way for the family to unwind together.

You may even notice that everyone in the home is getting along a bit better, there is less tension and more smiles. Using visualization with children has long reaching benefits, not only for the little ones in your life.
