Kids have busy minds too! A day full of activities, feelings, and interactions can make it hard to settle down and sleep! This special meditation is suitable for children of all ages. It is full of lots of slow breathing, yawning, and slllloooooowwwww turtle metaphors. We know that yawning and slow breathing are contagious….so we made sure to do lots of these in the meditation.

I created this meditation with my daughter Hailey because she loves guided meditation to help her sleep. We decided to use a turtle because they are so slow.

We are also passionate about the animals and the environment, so we wanted to highlight the Turtle which is an endangered species! We are using this meditation as a fundraiser, so please consider making a donation of any amount to the World Wildlife fund. We set up a private page here and our goal is to raise $500!!  Want to learn more? visit the official page for the endangered sea turtle and find out what you can do to help.

A special note to parents…..this is a very useful meditation for you too!!
