Cool at School Guided Relaxation

Help your child remain relaxed and cool at school with calming breathing and feel-good techniques that brighten the days.

Imagine now inside of you, there a big beautiful bucket. Everyone has one though we can’t see it with our eyes. When we feel good, our buckets are full. When we’re feeling bad, our buckets are low… or even empty.  Did you know that when you fill someone else’s bucket with kindness, helpfulness or even a smile, your own bucket gets filled up too? That’s actually the way we fill our buckets. When we share goodness and think happy thoughts, our buckets are filled with so much goodness.

This kindness meditation for kids is based on the book: Have you Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids by Carol McCloud.

Now, as you finish watch how a very strong friendly wind comes along and carries your worry bubble far, far away…. it carries it so far away that you will never have to worry about that again. It’s leaving now. Watch as it goes. You can blow up as many bubbles as you need to with your magical bubble blower. Put anything in there that is bothering you and watch as the wind carries the bubbles far, far away. You can use this magic bubble blower whenever you need to… just by imagining it in…

Use a magical bubble blower to blow away any childhood worries. Read this script to your child in a gentle, loving voice and really savor each sentence.

Feel the rhythm of the calm waves flow over the sand – it relaxes you. Notice how your breathing becomes calm and even. Inhaling and exhaling slowly and calmly. Paying attention now, you slow down your breathing even further and allow your muscles to relax.  Feel the warmth of the sun melting your muscles into complete relaxation. Slowly and easily your body relaxes more and more …. releasing tension or frustration, releasing any worries or doubts you have.
