Grow Up Mindful: A Path to Clarity Balance and Happiness

by Greg Justice and Art Still

Mindfulness. It is an easy word to say. It is also an easy one to practice. For the millions of people across the world who take time out of their day to practice mindfulness, there are plenty of benefits to be had. For those who don’t, the door is always open. Though mindfulness is a healthy and mind-awakening habit for everyone, it can be particularly useful for children and teens throughout their developmental years.

Unlike some stress-relieving habits – such as exercise or vacations – mindfulness is an always available, life-long option.

For parents, teachers, and role models, encouraging and demonstrating mindfulness for the next generation may be one of the most impactful lessons that can be left behind.
