This guided meditation for kids teaches the benefits of developing an awareness of the sensations of our emotions and being able to accept them and express them without judgement or overwhelm. Strong emotions can make us feel physically uncomfortable, e.g. pounding heart, tightness in our chest, feeling sick in the tummy. They can also manifest as a physical sensation or feeling, e.g. being emotionally exhausted can make your body feel sore, weak and tired. By focusing on our breathing, we can remain calm and reduce the effect of these emotions on our minds and bodies before we react to them physically. Being aware of where we usually feel an emotion means we can recognise it sooner next time and manage it before it intensifies. Sitting still for any length of time, can bring up strong thoughts, feelings and emotions. The more we let our emotions flow and be expressed safely, the better it is for our mental and physical health.
