Why Meditate?

Why Meditate?

“Meditation” is a word that is often misunderstood. Usually, when we hear the word “meditate” we think of someone sitting quietly, legs folder, eyes closed, blocking out the outer world and creating a still mind. Easier said than done, right? But there are many ways to meditate, and they aren’t all quite so challenging.

Here at KidCentered, we have taught our children a number of ways to meditate, but the MindTime™ meditations for kids are our kids’ favorite way to meditate.

There’s something to be said for teaching children to still their minds, right? Yes, we agree. But the type of relaxed focus (like our MindTime™ meditations) helps kids to learn to settle themselves, and feel better equipped to handle life’s everyday challenges.

It’s a well-known fact that regular meditation carries benefits such as increased focus, improved personal relationships, stronger mental and physical discipline, increased ability to manage stress, increased productivity, and much more.

What you might not know is that we infuse energy healing properties into all our MindTime™ meditations, which further enhance the practice of meditation. This is done gently and operates in the background as your child listens to the audios.

Best of all, kids of all ages love MindTime™ meditations. In fact, we get many emails from happy parents who are enjoying the guided visualizations on their own, even when the kids have gone to bed or school.

We believe in empowering kids and parents to handle the challenges we all face: doing chores we don’t want to do, taking the time to do something properly, picking up after ourselves, doing necessary things that are physically or mentally challenging, cleaning, handling conflict and difficult people, and much more.
