It’s a sunny day and Bodhi the beach buggy is excited! He hopes for a beautiful day at the beach. It’s time for some sand surfing!
Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 6:35
Sand Surfing Story Excerpt:

Soon Bodhi’s driver had steered him out of the neighborhood and onto some bumpier roads.  The little beach buggy bounced a little bit as he traveled down the street.  Then he saw a sign welcoming him to the sand dunes.  Bodhi’s driver was taking him to a special park just for beach buggys.  He was going to drive on the sand! Bodhi saw the hills of sand just ahead of him.  The little beach buggy was so excited he began to bounce even higher on the bumpy road.

Today’s Meditation: Deep dragon breaths are a key part of this guided meditation as you relax your body from your toes up to the top of your head.

Dandelion Fun: a kid’s bedtime story and relaxation

Dandelion Fun: a kid’s bedtime story and relaxation

Anora notices bright yellow flowers in the field next to her house. It’s a day for dandelion fun! What will Anora do with these friendly flowers?

She began to gather up dandelions. Anora felt a fun pop, as she gently tugged their stems. She picked one, two, three, four, and five. That should be just the right number of dandelions to make a bracelet. Anora sat down and gently pulled the stem of a dandelion apart so there were two. She took another stem and pulled gently again. Then Anora tied the stems of the two flowers together. She kept going until all five of the fuzzy flowers were tied together. Anora put the bracelet on her wrist and smiled. She took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath). The dandelions looked beautiful around her wrist.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.

Lalita smiled.  The rain had provided a lovely drink, and now the sun warmed her cool, wet leaves. She had been working hard to make beautiful flowers and felt refreshed by the gifts from the sky.  The little lilac stretched her branches out into the sunshine, and the drops of rain began to dry off her leaves, leaving Lalita cozy and warm. She enjoyed the bright light and took a deep breath, in and out (deep breath).

Dad to the Rescue:a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Today’s Story

Owen is inspired and begins to write a story but gets stuck. Fortunately, it’s Dad to the rescue! He helps Owen learn the importance of taking a break to feel refreshed.

Dad to the Rescue Story Excerpt:

“How’s it going?” his dad said.
“I’m stuck. I can’t figure out how to start the story.”  Owen said, feeling frustrated.
“You’ve been working pretty hard at this, I think maybe you should take a break.”  Owen’s dad suggested.
“That’s OK, dad. I can do this. I don’t need a break.” Owen said.
“Owen, a break isn’t quitting, it is giving yourself the option to find new ideas by doing something completely different. I take breaks all the time when I am stuck. Then when I come back, I have a fresh new idea. What would you like to do for a break?” his dad asked.
“It looks pretty nice outside. Maybe I’ll play for a bit.” Owen said with a sigh. He still wanted to finish his story.

Today’s Meditation:

Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

A Dancing Deer: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

A Dancing Deer: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Meet Deena, a dancing deer, as she leaps across the meadow. She discovers fresh water to drink and flowers to nibble in her dance through the swaying grass.

The little deer carefully stepped out into the field, watching everything around her.  The green grasses gently rippled with the soft breeze, creating a path to follow.  As Deena began to follow the path, she saw delicate little purple flowers tucked in among the grasses.  They shyly smiled at her, and then disappeared into the grass again as she wandered by. The little deer smiled and walked out a little further into the meadow.  She saw daisies waving and smiling in the warm light, encouraging Deena to join them.  The little deer closed her eyes for a moment and enjoyed the warmth of the sun on her fur.  She sighed, opened her eyes and walked even further into the meadow. 

Today’s Meditation:
