Able takes you through body scan meditation. Kids love this and so do parents and educators. In Mindfulness for kids, Shamash Alidina describes the body scan as a way to get in touch with the body, let go of feelings of needing to get stuff done, and release pent-up emotions. Just like other forms of meditation, the body scan also trains attention. Alidina says: The body scan alternates between a wide and narrow focus of attention; from focusing on your little toe all the way through the entire body. The body scan trains your mind to be able to move from detailed attention to a wider and more spacious awareness from one moment to the next. In our 3.5 minute body scan meditation, we let the practictioner experience the meditation in a fast paced world allowing oneself to be in touch with one’s body..
