What's the best way to use the box?
Upon receiving the Be You Living Mindfulness Toolbox your child’s mindfulness practice will begin.
Opening the toolbox can become your child's first mindfulness practice where they sit comfortably and take a few deep breaths looking at the toolbox with ‘Beginners Mind’, like seeing something for the first time by letting go of any preconceived ideas and having an attitude of openness, curiosity, non-judgement while engaging the senses.
Depending on the size of your chosen box, you may want to work with your child to plan the activities over a number of days or let them manage at their own pace.
Each mindfulness activity is an opportunity to practice the qualities of mindfulness. The instruction booklet contains a ‘How to use the Be You Living Toolbox’ page which will guide your child through the steps of how to best use the activities in the toolbox.
