About Mindful Powers™

The technique of mindfulness has been very positively received by many of those who have taken the time to learn and practice it. Adults have embraced mindfulness apps to aid their learning and practice. Mindful Powers is a version of these apps aimed at children aged between 7 and 10.

The contents of this app in both presentation and method are well suited to the target age group. The child-friendly graphics have a dreamy quality and the audio is something of an ethereal soundscape.

Ideal for kids aged 7 – 10

Mindful Powers™ is designed to be a part of your child’s daily routine. It is simple, easy, and fun to use, so kids can pick it up and use it at any point in their day. The two key features are:
• Mindful Play | voice-guided mindfulness sessions
• Focus Time | a task timer

Mindful play:
Through a series of 10 progressive and interactive voice-guided sessions, kids learn how to master the powers of mindfulness – the ability to know and understand what is happening in one’s head at any given moment, without getting carried away by it. Before each lesson, kids sooth their very own Flibbertigibbet™, who is in an agitated state, with the touch of their finger. This sensory-based repetitive interaction triggers the body’s rest and digest response, helping kids relax and regain focus.

Focus time:
The Flibbertigibbet™ self-set timer helps kids set mental parameters around a given task by applying focus time until completion. When the focus timer is on, Mindful Powers™ deters kids from using the device for any other purpose, encouraging them to work towards completing their tasks.

Mindful Powers helps grow the following skills:
• Calmness & relaxation
• Stress & anxiety reduction
• Concentration & focus
• Navigating big emotions
• Getting along with others

“Mindful Powers™ is not a cookie cutter approach to mindfulness. Based on contextual behavioral science and inspired by an approach to therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, it recognizes that the mindfulness experience is a psychological experience that can be learned in small bits and gradually presented and trained.”
— Dr. Roger Vilardaga, Assistant Professor at Duke University
