Looking for Mindfulness Apps to Try?

Posted on March 29 2017

When I first heard of mindfulness apps, I wasn’t too eager to check them out. Practicing mindfulness was supposed to get us off of technology and out into the world where we could appreciate the present, right? Well, that’s true, however, I see now, how beneficial they can be. As a teacher of elementary children, I found that many of the mindfulness apps currently out there are very developmentally appropriate and great for parents and teachers who many not be overly familiar with mindfulness, but want to guide children through mindful exercises. Kids can also use many of these by themselves for their own emotional regulation. The list below is just a short list of some mindfulness/meditation apps for children that either I have tried or my colleagues have. Some are free and some have a small fee. Check them out and if you have others you like that are not on this list, please comment!
