WHIS

Too many children suffer from stress and all sorts of mental health issues. Lack of sleep plays a major role in this devastating tendency in our societies. Children today in general sleep one hour less than we did 25 years ago. And that hour makes a big difference in their lives. When you read The Children’s Meditations In my Heart to your child before bedtime and you give your child the tools to wind down, find inner peace and fall asleep.

Herfamily.ei

By Sharyn Hayden

Whenever something – anything – promises to help our kids go to sleep at night, we parents are all ears.

Lullabies, clocks, particular colour paint on the bedroom walls, blackout blinds, scents, specialised toys – we have heard about them all, we have bought them all and we use them all. But what about something far simpler, something that doesn’t require a tonne of money or set-up? What about.. love?…

ALL ABOUT U

By Rebecca, All about u, UK based family life & travel blogger and mama of two.

“I have been reading this book lately and have been really impressed by it… The stories are a way of teaching little ones to understand all of the beauty and immense strength they have inside. When they find their inner resources and get to know the power of their hearts, the stories teach them how to find the important balance in life, the aim being that they’ll grow up to make a difference.”

A Dusty Olive Green

By Birgitte. She is Danish – from Copenhagen – but has lived in Italy for almost 15 years.

“The main philosophy behind the book is simple: It’s all about love. Love between children and their parents, love to the universe and other people and – maybe most importantly – love to oneself. But the book also touches other important things in life such as gratitude for what we have and empathy towards people who may have less or nothing in terms of love. It also provides some great tools for children to deal with separation and loss.”

UK Yankee

By Alisa, a born Midwesterner who had a culture-reassignment operation nearly 20 years ago and is now British (by residency).

“Here’s the astounding thing. I mentioned before that a lot of the reviewers said their children would fall asleep during the meditations. Even Gitte mentions this in the introduction. I kind of thought this was one of those ‘side-effects’ that a few people experienced. But hand-on-heart, Minnie-Sue falls asleep in the meditations about 80% of the time. And if she doesn’t fall asleep, she is in such a deep state of relaxation that she’s not far from the Land of Nod. I had to experience this to believe it! And I sleep better that night too.”

A mum reviews

Hygge has made its way into homes all around the world lately and the Danish way of doing things is widely talked about. Bedtime is no different! The Children’s Meditations in My Heart by Gitte Winter Graugaard is a collection of meditations designed to help children drift off to sleep within minutes. It became a hit in Denmark straight away and is now available in English here in the UK as a beautifully illustrated hard-back book.”

Now available in three different languages, it is beginning to change bedtime routines the world over.
What’s her secret? A method so simple it will surprise you: you’ve just got to turn up the love.”

The Sue Atkins Show

Sue Atkins mentions “The Children’s Meditations In my Heart” on her radioshow on March 31st 2017.

“Wonderful book for children for relaxing, and sleeping. The artwork of the book is wonderful. You get your children to snuggle in, close their eyes, relax, and then you read this wonderful meditative and uplifting kind of visualization, which mentions their names and celebrates their uniqueness. Personally, I couldn’t think of a more wonderful way to fall asleep nurturing your child’s self-esteem and self-confidence. You calm your children down, help them relax and fall into a nice slumber.
