Healthy Holidays for Kids: Mindful Movement Exercises, Part 2

It’s tough being a kid. Balancing the stresses of studying, homework, extracurricular activities and a social life can make a child’s school schedule look more like a CEO’s day planner. Which is why it’s so important to instill a healthy respect for exercise and mindful movement at a young age. The benefits are myriad, from improved concentration at school and enhanced confidence, to a sense of self-discipline and improved quality of sleep.
