Relaxation and stress management techniques woven into stories for younger children to improve sleep, manage stress, lower anxiety, reduce anger, and increase self-esteem.
Indigo Dreams is a 60 minute relaxation audio book designed to entertain your child while introducing them to relaxation and stress management techniques. Four unique bedtime or naptime stories incorporate breathing, visualizations, progressive muscle relaxation, and affirmations. These are the same self-calming techniques recommended for adults, but presented in a fun, interactive format that appeals to children. Children follow the characters along as they learn diaphragmatic breathing with A Boy and A Bear, make positive statements with The Affirmation Web, visualize with A Boy and a Turtle, and use progressive muscle relaxation with The Goodnight Caterpillar.
Each story ranges from 6 to 10 minutes long, making it perfect for beginners or children with shorter attention spans. Each story uses a different relaxation technique that children can use to relax, self-soothe, build self-esteem and improve sleep.
Note to Parents: Every child has a different emotional maturity, attention span, and need. While the stories are best suited for ages 4-9, this CD is great for any child with a short attention span, or as an introduction to the techniques. Even adults can learn the techniques within these stories if they will allow themselves to enjoy the playful format.
