Resilient Family: Happy Child provides simple mindfulness based, movement and awareness training for individuals, parents and older and younger children. It uses movement to discharge stress and build body awareness. The aim is to support development of resilience and self-regulation through training in mindful movements.
The app contains video training for learning:
-Preparatory Set & Natural State
-Dropping the Weight
Additionally, for kids, there are also 18 Low Stim (lower noise and lower visual stimulus) and 18 High Stim (higher levels of sound and visual stimulus). Easy to follow for kids... but equally meaningful and enjoyable for adults.

Feelings of stress and anxiety in adults and children may be the result of life events. Also, autism and other neurodevelopmental challenges, can increase the likelihood of these feelings.
Family participation in activities such as those shown in this app, can promote well-being when parents and older siblings model behaviors and practices for and with, younger children. Family bonds are enhanced when families participate in activities together.
The app videos use nature scenes and music to create a fascinating and mesmerizing flow of imagery. This draws the watcher into a calmer and more present state that can help to restore balance to the nervous system. The videos show simple movements that can be used at any time to support inner balance and development of self-regulation.
This app is based on cutting edge neuroscience that demonstrates that body awareness and movement are important building blocks for developing positive feelings and self-regulation.
Parents, teachers and older siblings are urged to watch the training videos to develop skills and understanding. All age groups can also enjoy the beauty and practical benefits of the short, child-featured videos.
