Our world is so crazy and fast paced. Even my kids get caught up on the busyness of life with school, soccer, and friends. We often don’t take the time to just rest and relax and center our bodies and minds. Zafooz are adorable, plush animal pillows that help teach kids how to stop, by mindful, and reset their minds and bodies. Teaching kids to be mindful will help them calm nerves when they are anxious or learn how to take a few minutes and refocus.
We have tried this summer to find balance and not be over-scheduled or over-stimulated. Honestly, I needed a break from the crazy schedules during school and soccer season, and the kids needed to rest their bodies and minds. We have added going to the library every other week as one of our ways to reset and take time to be quiet with a book. The kids will grab their zafooz mindful monkey or lotus ladybug and either lay on them or rest their books on them while they soak up new adventures they read in their books.
It is amazing how a simple thing like a stuffed animal/pillow could help my kids find some rest and centering during summer. I hope that they will look at the ladybug and it be a reminder that when school or soccer seems overwhelming that they can take a few minutes to cuddle and allow the anxiety to pass.
All six zafooz were given unique, interesting names and descriptions that are associated with mediation, yoga, or wellness. Don’t tell the kids, but I have borrowed their zafooz a couple times when I was having a rough day!
