When I started practicing mindfulness I quickly realised that some people are more naturally mindful than others. Both my husband and my daughter, regardless of their age, are, in my opinion naturally mindful. They have both taught me alot in expressing gratitude, being present and being attentive listeners. They don't tend to dwell in the past or worry about things that may or may not happen they just focus on the now...what's happening at presnt in their lives. mindfulness-based practices can help children calm down, become more focused, fall asleep more easily, alleviate worry, manage anger, and generally become more patient and aware.
