About Pause with Panda
What is a Pause?
A “Pause” is a short mindfulness exercise specifically made for children. During these fun, audible exercises, children build skills such as self-regulation, focus, attention, compassion and more.
Taking a Pause with Panda is easy and fun:
Step 1: Pause
Children can take a Pause easily without reliance on an adult or being in front of a screen. To Pause, they simply press one of Panda’s 6 buttons.
Step 2: Listen
Panda then guides children through a short exercise based on the Pause category. All children have to do is listen to Panda to follow along.
Step 3: Resume
Once the Pause is over, children can resume whatever they were doing before, or take another Pause.
Panda’s Pause Types
Calm Pauses help children learn to regulate or calm down their nervous system by learning anchors like belly breathing.
Focus Pauses hone children’s attention and focus by teaching them to pay attention to their senses, feelings and thoughts.
Move Pauses encourage mindful movement through slower poses inspired by yoga, or more fast paced like shaking the sillies out.
Love Pauses help children cultivate and show compassion and kindness to both themselves, but also others.
Sleep Pauses are bedtime stories or soft music that a child can listen to when snuggling up and getting ready for sleep.
Panda’s Smart Heart allows parents, therapists or other adults to record their own Pause for a child to hear.
