Children ages 4-9 love to take a deep breath, unwind and relax with this easy exercise known as progressive muscular relaxation. This effective kids stress and anger management technique is widely accepted and used by both traditional and holistic communities.
The technique focuses awareness on various muscle groups to create a complete resting of the mind and body. Muscular relaxation can have a positive impact on your child’s health and immune system. It can lower stress and anxiety levels and can also be used to decrease pain as an alternative or complimentary treatment. This encouraging story quiets the mind and relaxes the body so your child can enjoy relaxation and fall asleep peacefully. Sweet dreams!
