SUMMARY

If you have been listening to the Shining with ADHD podcast for a bit, you’ve heard us talk about the Zenimal. This screen-free audio device has been a GAME-CHANGER in our homes regarding sleep. But the Zenimal isn’t just for sleep support. The device also comes with meditations to guide your kids and teens through helpful breathing practices and mindset shifts. In fact, our favorite thing about the Zenimal is that every meditation ends with “And don’t forget, you’re a good kid!” In this episode, creator Anna Macsalka discusses the story behind those words and the benefits of meditation for the mind and body. Her personal experience shows the immense value of meditation for kids. And listen, you might be thinking…” My child with the Ferrari brain and bicycle brakes will not slow down enough for meditation.” We’ve also been there and have heard story after story of kids who were resistant initially but now ask for their Zenimal at school and home. Check out the episode and see why! 

MEET ANNA

The company Zenimal was founded in 2017 by Anna Peterson Macsalka. She is a mom entrepreneur who wanted to help people lead healthier, more joyful lives through meditation. She believed that meditation could help everyone, both adults and children, to navigate our endlessly connected, fast-paced world. After suffering from severe anxiety as a child and finding solace in mindfulness practice at an early age, Anna wanted to give this gift to her children and to all beings everywhere in a way that doesn’t require a stress-inducing screen. Anna created the Zenimal+, which is a screen-free solution to practice and learn the art of mindfulness through meditation.
