Emotions and Me: A Mindfulness Guide to Exploring Emotions

Franklin Watts
Authors:
Franklin Watts

Everyone notices the weather outside, right? But did you realise that weather occurs inside of you too? In fact, it is here right now... Outside it is hot and sunny, but Billy's internal weather is different. His gran is very sick and in the hospital. He notices that he is experiencing an emotion - sadness. Sadness, like other emotions, comes and goes. It is normal and natural, even though it might not feel pleasant. For Billy, sadness feels like a dark, cloudy day inside his body. Betty's internal weather is a little different. She also feels sad but there is a worry inside too. Worry feels like a wind that blows around in her belly making her feel scared. 'What will happen to gran? Will she get better?'The children and their friends all experience different kinds of weather: Anger (burning hot sun); Relief (a cool breeze); Delight (sun breaking through the clouds); etc.Weather is always changing. Just like emotions. And just like Billy, Betty and their friends, we can watch the changing weather inside us. Pause and look now! What's the weather doing?Mindfulness practices (exercises) are integrated into each story, and expanded on in the 'Notes to Parents and Teachers' section at the end of the books. Readers are invited to PAUSE at various points in the story to notice their own present moment experience. The four stories in the 'Mindful Me' series explore how a mindful attitude to life can enhance enjoyment, promote a sense of calm and confidence, and provide young people with a 'friend for life'. The books can be used at home or in the classroom, for storytime or as part of the PSHCE curriculum.The other titles are:Just Breathe: A Mindfulness Guide to Keeping Anger at BayIt's Beautiful Outdoors: A Mindfulness Guide to Noticing NatureSleep Easy: A Mindfulness Guide to Getting a Good Night's Sleep

Billy and Betty are bored. It's raining, they have no internet connection, there's nothing to do. Then, the doorbell rings. A cheerful, rain soaked woman introduces herself: she's selling secrets. All it will cost is 5 minutes of their time.'What's the biggest secret in the world?', the children ask.'It's right under you nose!', she replies. 'But there's nothing there!''Look again. But not with your eyes.'When they look again, with their awareness, they find the breath. They feel it move. Over the next few pages they are guided through a mindfulness exercise, feeling their breath like waves rising and falling. Each wave feels different. 'Wow, I never realised there is a whole sea inside of me!''And there's another secret too!', the woman says, as she leaves. 'But you need to find that out for yourselves...All it takes is five minutes of breathing a day'.The children sit and wonder what the secret is. It's still raining outside. There is still nothing to do. But, strangely, they no longer feel bored. In fact, they feel calm. And full of ideas!'Let's paint the sea!'So...do you know what this secret is?Mindfulness practices (exercises) are integrated into each story, and expanded on in the 'Notes to Parents and Teachers' section at the end of the books.
