About the Mindful Frog Adventures
The Mindful Frog adventures are audio-only recordings to help children ages 4-7 become more mindful every day.
The idea is to encourage them to constantly notice things around them in the world using all of their five senses.
During these adventures, Simon guides them to look, feel, taste, listen or even smell, all in their imagination.
There are lots of atmospheric sound effects to help them feel like they're actually in the scene.
Years of research by Ellen Langer Ph.D., a professor at Harvard University (known to many in the field as the "Mother of Mindfulness"), shows that noticing things, particularly new things, is the fastest route to mindfulness.
If you want to "be in the moment", just pay attention and deliberately notice things. It really is Instant Mindfulness.
If we combine this practice of noticing with the formal mindfulness meditation that is starting to appear in our schools, we'll have the whole package.
The best thing about the Mindful Frog adventures is that you can use them anywhere, anytime. They're a relaxing way to spend time in the car on the way to school. Teachers can use them in the classroom, and they'll work as a bedtime story too!
The added benefit is that your kids won't be looking at a screen while they listen. They can close their eyes and get some "Imagination Training".
Every few weeks, a new Mindful Frog podcast is released. They run anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes, and are absolutely free.

Enjoy being Mindful!
