PAGES OF IMAGINATION
Written by Marneta Viegas - founder of Relax Kids, this book combines well-known and loved fairytales with simple meditation and mindfulness techniques to help children relax.
Children go on magical adventures in their mind as they imagine they are Aladdin floating on a carpet, Jack climbing the beanstalk and floating in the clouds, the little mermaid swimming in the ocean and Sleeping Beauty lying in a satin bed.
The book supports children's imagination as they become the main character in each story.
This highly imaginative and captivating book holds childrens attention whilst teaching important relaxation skills. The story relaxations have been designed to help children relax and destress.
These relaxations aim to develop confidence and creativity. This book is designed to engage children while introducing them to relaxation and simple stress-management techniques.
Relaxation strategies such as progressive muscle relaxation and visual imagery have been shown to be extremely effective treatment components for reducing stress and anxiety in children.
This book is an invaluable bedtime and classroom tool. Each relaxation lasts around 4-5 minutes and is perfect to bring rest and calm to the room.
These story meditations are a wonderful way for children to explore learning and mindfulness. Children love to tell stories, role-play stories and teach others what they learn from stories. Research supports that mindful meditation calms the brain, inspires creativity and enhances cognitive and social-emotional skills.
Practiced regularly, these exercises can have a profound effect on children’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
This book can be used in the classroom to bring quiet and calm before lessons, during assemblies, PSHE classes, after PE and during wet play time.
