Ever considered sleep meditation? Bedtime can be nothing short of a nightmare if you have little ones who just don't want to go to sleep, no matter how tired you know they are. Or maybe you have kids who sleep well, but could benefit from a little mindfulness and help to develop healthy sleep habits. Either way, research suggests that children and adults, alike, could benefit from a little downtime before bed in order to aid sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.

So, why meditation? Well, researchers suggest that meditation can help decrease heart rate and slow breathing, which is really important for helping children unwind after a long day at school, extra-curricular clubs or whatever else they have been up to.

After all, it makes complete sense that we need a little time to still our minds before we can even think about the benefits of a good night's sleep.

And if you don't know where to get started with kids' sleep meditation, no need to fear. Headspace offer specialised programmes targeted at helping kids unwind and enjoy the benefits of meditation, with options for children aged five and under, six to eight, and nine to 12.

Once you've connected your account to your smart speaker, simply say 'Alexa, open Headspace' and enjoy some quality time with your kids learning how to unwind and become more mindful. Who knows, you may even reap some of the benefits yourself...
