Relaxation routine for toddlers: Techniques for calming down.


Last updated:

Introduce a relaxation routine for toddlers to help them unwind and calm down. Start by setting up a serene atmosphere with dimmed lights and gentle music, while incorporating calming scents. Teach them various techniques to soothe their minds and bodies, such as deep breathing, muscle relaxation, and guided imagery. Encourage them to find comfort in cuddling with their favorite plush toy, listening to a tranquil story, or swaying gently. Additionally, introduce them to the concept of mindfulness through age-appropriate activities and provide a soothing touch or massage to further promote relaxation.
