In aid of National Stress Awareness Day we held the first of four sessions of Relax Kids for the local looked after children. Relax Kids offers unique classes that take children on fantastic magical adventures each week while teaching them to feel great, feel confident and relax. The sessions are fun and creative helping children become more resilient and improving their emotions. By giving children a toolbox of relaxation and mindful exercises from a young age, they will grow up with good mental health.
The sessions aid the children in how to relax and improve their sleep, self soothe, increase their brain power, develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, regulate their moods or emotions, manage stress and anxiety, be more focussed and concentrated, and how to feel more positive, mindful and happy.
Relax Kids classes last between 45 and 60 mins and are different from any others as they use a unique combination of mindful games, storytelling with exercises, stretching, breathing, massage, as well as, positive affirmations, visualisations, mindfulness and relaxations. The program allows children to have fun but also learn vital skills that will help them for years to come.
The children really embraced the session on the day and are looking forward to the next session.
