The series “Activity Spotlight” will introduce you to fun and easy ways to share mindfulness with your children in the classroom or at home. Through breathing exercises, mindful games and crafts, you can find moments of stillness and reflection to help your children focus and grow their awareness.

在这一系列的“活动聚焦” 中我将介绍和分析如何用简单的方法在家里或者在教室里和你的孩子们进行正念。通过呼吸的练习,正念游戏以及绘画手工的练习可以帮助您的孩子提高注意力和提高她们对当下的意识。

Practising mindfulness as an adult has a lot to do with connecting to your breath formally in meditation as well as at times in the day that helps us to come back to the present moment. We can introduce this to our children from a young age in a number of fun and practical ways, to start them on their mindfulness journey. But first we need to go back to basics. What is the breath and where is it in our body? Watch the video below to learn how to guide your children to find and follow their breath.

作为成年人进行正念,我们可以进行相关的呼吸练习,于此同时可以帮助你注意到当下的事情。我们可以把呼吸正念的方法介绍给我们的孩子们,哪怕他们还很小我们也可以以一种有趣的方法进行练习。但是首先我们要学习基本的正念。什么是呼吸,呼吸在我们身体的什么部位?请观看下面的视频去学习如何指导您的孩子去发现呼吸和怎么进行正念呼吸?

As the teacher, take a deep breath in through your nose and back out. Ask your child to copy you, pointing to your nose and the direction of your breath as your breathe in and out together. Ask your child, where do you feel your breath? Is it in your nose? Can you feel it in your chest? What about your belly? They may answer you straightaway with the suitable suggestions or you may need to guide them to find their breath in their body. Take a few deep breaths together and talk about the different places they notice their breath. 

作为老师,我们可以通过鼻子进行呼进和呼出的练习。让您的孩子模仿您,用手指着您的鼻子然后让您的学生和你一起进行呼进和呼出的练习。然后问您的学生,你在哪里感觉到了您的呼吸?是在您的鼻子里嘛?你可以在你的肺部感觉到呼吸吗?你的肚子可以感受到呼吸吗?他们可能直接的告诉你他们的呼吸在哪里?或着你也可以引导他们在他们的身体中找到哪里可以呼吸。练习一深呼吸然后一起讨论他们不同的地方可以呼吸。

Ready for the next step? If your child can already follow their breath, see if you can count 10 breaths together. Breathe in, breathe out, 1, breathe in, breathe out, 2, breathe in, breathe out, 3, and so on. You can practise this together regularly at the same time everyday to develop focus and notice their thoughts and feelings, or at a time when they need to calm down. 

接下来就是为下一步骤做好准备。如果您的孩子已经可以进行呼吸了,你可以尝试着通过数数字10的方法进行呼吸。呼入,呼出,你可以数数字1,然后继续让孩子听你的指令,呼入,呼出,2,呼入,呼出,3,以此类推。你可以采用这样的方法每天常规的进行练习,以这样的方法可以注意到孩子的注意力,他们的思考以及他们对待事物的感觉,或者有的时候他们需要平静下来也可以采用这样的方式进行练习。
