The Benefits of Starting the Day with a Meditation

16 February 2022 • Words by Alyssa Morgan 2 mins

Morning meditation is one of the best ways to start the day, even for kids! It’s been shown to improve focus, boost moods, and lower the chance of anxiety and stress later in the day. Moshi gives children a safe and whimsical space to connect with their minds and bodies before jumping into the day, setting them up for success in all aspects of life – school, extracurricular activities, and relationships. Here are a few favorite Moshi Moments designed specifically for waking up on the right side of the bed.

Morning Meditations for Kids

Wurley’s Happy Morning Meditation

Kids can get off to a great start every morning with this short session that encourages little listeners (and grown-ups) to stretch, move and fire up their imagination, just like Wurley, a Twirly Tiddlycopter who’s always raring to go. An ideal way to kickstart the day and now available on our YouTube channel! And if your little one loves Wurley, be sure to check out our free Wurley Tiddlycopter Craft, too. 

Morning Rise and Shine with Chirpy

Little ones can start their day the Moshi way thanks to this short audio session that will help awaken both mind and body with some invigorating breathing exercises, happy thoughts, and energizing stretching. Best of all, it’s filled with joyful birdsong!

Little Feel Goods with Peeps

Moshi is all about mood-boosting self-affirmations. This enchanting audio exercise is filled with Little Feel Goods, positive statements that kids can repeat as they listen. Perfect for bolstering confidence in challenging situations and starting the day filled with positivity and self-love, this is a Moshi Moment that kids can return to again and again.

If you want to get started meditating with your little ones but don’t think their attention spans will allow for it, even 1 minute of daily deep breathing can make a big difference in slowing down their thoughts and calming their nervous systems. Moshi has several easy-to-follow deep breathing exercises available in the app featuring SleepyPaws, Fluttercup, Purdy, and more!
