Children are suffering from stress and anxiety in epic proportions with society's pressure on them to perform and excel in school, sports, and extracurricular activities. I had a conversation with both my children on the same day discussing some of the daily anxiety they were experiencing. Hearing my son say he didn't know how to relax, triggered me to jump into action in researching products out there to assist. Learning to relax takes practice and time to master. Getting outdoors and regular exercise are a great start in assisting but let's take it to the next level. There are some amazing meditation and mindful practice tools out there that children and young adults can use to help create some more zen in their lives. Meditation is not just a tool to relieve stress and anxiety. It can assist with improvement in other areas as well, such as: creativity and focus skills, compassion for others, pain management, health and overall well-being.
Here are some of the best FREE mobile and iOS apps based on reviews. (They are also good for adults. Go ahead and see for yourself!):
