Keeping kids focused right now, especially if they are distance learning can be a real challenge for parents and The Doctors welcome mindfulness advocate Samuel Smith to share a technique that can help kids stay on task.
He tells physician Dr. Ian Smith that mindfulness -- which Samuel defines as "a conscious attempt to focus your attention in a non-analytical way" -- can help kids manage their stress and anxiety levels. He says if someone can slow down the world around them everything becomes much easier and much more focused.
"When you can focus, the world just becomes so much bigger for you," he tells Dr. Ian. "You become the god of your own universe...it's pretty amazing."
To incorporate mindfulness into your life or your child's, Samuel says it can be done it 2 easy steps:
1. Relax your body, from the top of your head down to your feet.
2. Close your eyes and breathe anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, which he says will help your mind reset.
Dr. Ian notes mindfulness and a mind reset can be practiced at any time during your day and anywhere you are.
