Meditation for Kids

We want children to be healthy and happy, not just now but for the rest of their lives. And teaching them about meditation early would help them do just that. That’s why we created Headspace for Kids.

For now, there are five themes for kids to explore:

Headspace for Kids - Calm

Teach your child the fundamentals of meditation with simple, fun breathing exercises.

Headspace for Kids - Focus

Kids will use their imagination to practice a relaxed, precise kind of focus.

Headspace for Kids - Kindness

Visualization exercises that will teach your child about openness and generosity.

Headspace for Kids - Sleep

Help your little one get a good night's rest with relaxing mindfulness activities.

Headspace for Kids - Wake up
Wake up

These quick meditations will help you and your child start the day off right.

Teach your child the fundamentals of meditation with simple, fun breathing exercises.

Available to all subscribers, kids (and their parents) can enjoy fun, engaging activities that teach them the basics of mindfulness. They’ll practice breathing exercises, visualizations and even try some focus-based meditation. Of course, different exercises work best for different ages so we’ve customized the sessions for three age groups: 5 and under, 6-8 and 9-12.

Headspace partners with Barbie

In an increasingly busy, over-connected world, it is more important than ever to take time for yourself - this rings true for adults and kids alike! Headspace has partnered with Barbie to raise awareness around nurturing overall emotional well-being through mindfulness exercises.

Headspace teams up with Sesame Street

To help kids get the restful sleep they need, Headspace and Sesame Street have teamed up for the new podcast, “Goodnight, World!”. Join some of your favorite characters as they wind down for the day, explore Sesame Street, and add a little mindfulness to kids’ bedtime routines.

It’s almost as though meditation was designed for kids. They just ‘get it’ – there is this elasticity and freedom in their minds which allows them to be present in the moment and free from any external thoughts or pressures. By introducing meditation and mindfulness at an early age, not only can we build on this and help nurture their mind development, but we are also making meditation simple and accessible.
