WHY:  Mindfulness is "The awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally to the unfolding experience moment by moment." ~Jon Kabat Zinn. Developing a mindfulness skillset at a young age can help children self-regulate, reduce anxiety, and thrive during times of frustration or change. Living in and through a pandemic, reaching the age of attending preschool and school, are all really big things for children to experience and mindfulness practices can help them thrive through those transitions.
