• What is a Mind Jar?
    A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down”.
    How to Use a Mind Jar
    1.  Shake the jar until the sparkles are spinning around- this represents your mind when it is busy, upset, or mad.
    2.  Set the jar down and take deep breaths slowly.  
    3.  Notice hwo the sparkles settle slowly down to the bottom.  As they do that let your thoughts settle too.  
    4.  Continue this until all the sparkles have settled at the bottom.
