2. Benefits of Practicing Quiet Time



Here are some ways kids and teens can benefit from different "quiet time" techniques.

Learn even, regular breathing to give instant stress relief on a moment's notice. The regular even breathing is a bridge that ties body to mind; when breathing is made regular it calms the physical body. And further, when the body becomes calm, the mind regains more peacefulness. For example: breathe in one count; breathe out one count; breathe in one count; and continue the pattern. Do not hold your breath at any point.

Following the sequence within a "quiet time" plan develops memory and the ability to concentrate. This is extremely useful in academic work where the kids are expected to learn new skills every day, and build upon those skills as they progress through the grades. Memory and concentration are needed outside the classroom, too, to learn daily living skills, and mastery in the arts and sports.

Longer periods of "quiet time" give the body and mind time to relax and center. The practices pay off when stress has taken hold and caused agitation and unrest, and the inability to get anything accomplished effectively.

I found in teaching, that active or hyperactive kids moving in rhythm with the group, such as in the circle dancing, derive a calming effect. Rhythmic movement soothes the body and mind with its regular recurring patterns.

"Quiet time" is non-competitive, and each can participate to the best of their ability, with adaptations if needed, or by sitting with a partner.

"Quiet time" can be done individually or in a group setting, and it does not need a special place. Though some ideas for quiet places to practice include: sitting on a rug in the bedroom with the door closed; a private spot in the yard, perhaps using a turned over log or a tree stump as a seat; quietly watching a body of water from the bank; rocking on a porch; taking a quiet walk through the park with a buddy.
