Mindful Ways to Get to Sleep
In today’s show we speak with Louise Shanagher, Child Therapist and Mindfulness Teacher about ways we can calm our busy minds and get ready for a great nights’ sleep!
Louise explained that it is very normal for lots of kids and adults to have busy minds at the end of the day which even though we are tired, can sometimes make it difficult to get to sleep!
She taught Buster and Buddy some super tools they can use at night to relax their bodies and calm their minds to settle down for sleep. Now they have a plan and some tools to use, Buster and Buddy feel so much more relaxed and confident now for night times.
Listen to the show to hear what Louise taught us, as well as lots of other fun stuff, like the Big BB Quiz…and kids telling us their favourite jokes in Tickle Your Funny Bone!
And remember to Stay Healthy, Stay Happy and Stay Well!
Michelle and her team have a collective 50years experience working with kids as teachers, entertainers and parents!
