Soothing anxious thoughts technique for five to eight year olds

When your child wakes in the night, they can feel anxious about getting back to sleep. But don’t worry, we’re here to help.

This episode is a form of body scan meditation, which encourages your child to bring their attention to parts of their body – starting with the toes and working up towards their head. This meditation will distract them from their worries and help them to go back to sleep.

Sleepy Time is brought to you by In The Moment Magazine and MadeForMums, written by psychologist and yoga teacher Suzy Reading and narrated by Gemma David of The Quiet Heart.
