– A colorful adventure book to help children overcome anxiety and fear.
– Join Elizabeth on an adventure in Fairyland!
While playing in an adventure playground, Elizabeth becomes anxious about crossing the ropes course. She meets a fairy who helps her learn the valuable lessons of taking one step at a time.
We don’t seem to know the source—whether it’s our overscheduled lives, increased screen time, or world events—but we can agree on one thing: many children today are experiencing unhealthy amounts of stress and anxiety. Anxiety often takes over their lives and affects their schoolwork and relationships.
One of the yoga principles states, “Suffering can be eliminated if the mind is repeatedly brought to a single focus.” In this fairy yoga story, Elizabeth is paralyzed by her fear of the ropes course at the adventure playground. However, many other childhood experiences could inspire this same feeling of fear. Elizabeth meets a fairy who embodies the yoga principle of single focus and encourages her to take one step at a time.
Hopefully, this “single focus” strategy can become a part of your toolkit, as one more way to reduce stress and anxiety in order to find calm in a busy world.
