    I’m a big fan of mindfulness, it’s really helped me and this book is a great guide to get into it. It’s really well explained giving a good introduction, explaining the hows and whys of mindfulness. Sets up easy tasks and how to make it a daily or weekly routine. There are some greats methods in here that I’ll be taking away. Great for kids and teens, but just as good for adults. Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

    I think all schools could do with a copy of your book. It would be wonderful for the children. I’ve downloaded your fantastic book today and in the new year will be using the techniques to introduce mindfulness to my children. It’s a fantastic book, thank you. We tried one activity briefly the other day whilst out walking, we stopped and used our senses to be present in the moment. Listening to the birds, smelling the fresh air etc. Was lovely!

    This book is an incredible resource. The author doesn't only lay out a bunch of helpful activities but has an incredible personal introduction that makes you see the importance of mindfulness, not only for children but for everyone. He has divided the activities not only in age groups (these are flexible) but also into three very helpful categories which help to develop a child holistically.

    I was intrigued by this title and the idea behind this book. "This book is filled with tried and true activities for both kids and teens...not therapy." The first couple paragraphs to the book could come off a bit condescending to some readers but just skip over it and keep going. The idea of this book is to help families and groups of children to experience "more joy and kindness and less stress and negativity...life skills to de-stress and calm down, navigate difficult emotions, control impuls I was intrigued by this title and the idea behind this book. "This book is filled with tried and true activities for both kids and teens...not therapy." The first couple paragraphs to the book could come off a bit condescending to some readers but just skip over it and keep going. The idea of this book is to help families and groups of children to experience "more joy and kindness and less stress and negativity...life skills to de-stress and calm down, navigate difficult emotions, control impulses, focus on what matters, and nurture empathy, kindness and positivity." That sounds like a lot! How can one small activity do all that? The activities are not meant for just children. Grown-ups, teens and whole families can be impacted. The author talks about positive changes with "tiny little steps." Could seem far fetched. But, he's right! Reading through the book, I noticed that the activities have zero prep time. This is always a bonus for me. There are a few activities that require items to use but the items are just things anyone would have around the house. I liked how the author took the simplest things into account because having to go out and buy items, make things to be super Pinterst like would never happen in my house. All the activities can be easily modified to fit your needs, family dynamic or whatever. He encourages people to focus on what they can do and not to let the age classification to dissuade them from trying an activity. The book is cut into categories to help the reader choose. The author includes personal experiences and examples, there is a while chapter dedicated to questions. The 3rd and 4th chapters are full of activities. Here is one example: The Star aka tracing five fingers Purpose: Body awareness, Mindfulness of breath, focus, Calm Best for: Ages 4+ groups or one-on-one What you need: Nothing After a few ties, your child can use this calming strategy independently. Here's how it works: Tell your child to an out his hand "like a star," (open his palm and spread his finger) and place it on a table , a knew or some other surface. The book goes on to explain further steps to this activity. That seems do-able and super easy. I also liked the activity of making emotion masks. This one requires a bit more prep, but the book lays out alternates and such. The items listed were all things I have in my house. If you don't have an item, leave it out and move on. No need to worry about having to include everything. I found it harder to follow the activities and sort through the activities on kindle. I can make notes and bookmark areas easily on kindle but I think it would be easier to do these things in a hard copy. Overall, this is a fun book to have in your home. Sometimes it's nice to have someone lay things out for you. It's a great place to start and it helps me when someone takes the time to tell me what to do. I need this to get started until the activities become familiar and I'm comfortable with what I'm doing. There's a troubleshooting page for additional help, if needed. Book isn't' super long. Activities are simple. I would recommend this book for FHE, some old fashioned family time and families with special needs children. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The author is a really nice person, and fun to be with. When I'm reading the text I can hear his calm, good humoured voice and a cool Finnish lilt to it. As a mindfulness instructor myself, I know that not every technique will suit every person. It's a question of finding what works for your students, let them make it their own, and let the technique work for them. With the range of techniques on offer here, there's sure to be something for kid and adult alike. I know I've gained some good ideas! As I've gone through the activity book, I've really enjoyed the friendly language and approach (and not just because I can hear his voice!) It's been truly inspiring for me to hear about the stories and experiences he's had teaching mindfulness to his son, who in turn teaches his dad some really good stuff too! It makes the techniques come alive for me to see how his young son actually uses the techniques for himself after he's learnt them. That's just so cool! I also enjoy the authenticity and just how much Chris shares with us in his journey of teaching. I'm impressed by the wide variety of techniques to cater for the different learning styles and developmental stages. Each one is categorised by age, tools required and the type of focus of that particular meditation. It helps to give variety or to find similar groups of meditations if a student really gets on with that style. There are also a lot of good hints and tips, not just about mindfulness techniques but ways of teaching and reinforcing good practice. So, in summary, it's a great teaching tool, by a good person, and there's something for everyone, kid or adult alike. Enjoy!

    This book gives some good ideas for ways you can start to introduce mindfulness to children. I loved the wide range of activities, suitable for anyone aged 3+, and the way the author had developed them to cater for all personalities and circumstances. The only negatives I have about the book is that the first two chapters seemed to say the same things and were very wordy, so could be condensed into one shorter chapter, and the layout of the exercises is very text-dense, and that's not attractive This book gives some good ideas for ways you can start to introduce mindfulness to children.

However, in terms of content, this is a great book that provides excellent inspiration for people of all ages (not just kids!) to start using mindfulness in their lives. NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions

Love your work Chris

    As I read through this book, I realized that much of what was suggested would be great for me to use with children who have ADHD and anxieties (and adults too) in order to help them to calm themselves. I found that it was helpful to relieve my own stress and to work through difficult situations. Too bad I didn't have this book when my kids were little but it is not too late. I now am incorporating some of these activities in my classroom and am finding it extremely helpful.

    This book has a wealth of information and it takes into account that all children are different. The author even specifically mentions that the age references are mere guidelines not meant to limit your child and that you should go outside of that when appropriate. There are tons of activities to work with children on mindfulness. Only time will tell for sure, but I think this will greatly benefit my whole family.

    I read this book in just few days and it made me smile and feel joyful. I also felt my inner child awakening. I am definitely going to do many of the mindfulness activities you shared in the book with my 3 year old daughter. Thanks so much for the loving way you have written it. All parents and educators should read and practise these mindful activities. Giuliana - full time working mum inspired by yoga and mindfulness

    An incredible book and resource for parents, educators, and anyone who works and cares about children, teens,or adults. Chris has written a book that explains mindfulness and how it can positively affect the brain and the development of emotional regulation. There is a great variety of activities that help incorporate mindfulness into everyday activities. A fantastic well organized, easy to use book and resource for daily mindfulness..

    So many ideas in one place I am trying to introduce mindfulness to my kiddos (and to learn it myself), and this collection is a gem. I love the variety of ideas for quick and easy mindfulness experiences. I also like the fun little names for the games. It makes them easy to explain and to recall. I would really like to have this book in print to thumb through (sensory, anyone?) and keep in my reference collection

    A good resource for anyone dealing with children- parents, teachers, daycare providers, etc. The activities range in age,from toddler to teen (adults can do them too!), and a variety of goals- focus, calm, gratitude, to name a few. The book begins with tips on how to get started, how often and how long to practice, all the things you need to know. I'm doing some of the activities myself :) #UltimateMindfulnessActivityBook #NetGalley

    I am reviewing this book for Christian Bergstrom and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review. Although aimed at parents I would use this in the classroom and a few of the ideas with the children / young people at the clubs I run. Very useful for all ages …. Including me!
