Miranda Kerr shares how she practises mindfulness with her son

The supermodel uses meditation to put her seven-year-old son to sleep

Miranda Kerr cares a great deal about living as healthily as possible, from following clean eating regimes to maintaining a fit lifestyle.

However, it’s not just her physical health that the 35-year-old model diligently maintains.

Kerr is also a strong believer in mindfulness, a practice that she’s been passing onto her seven-year-old son Flynn.

The former Victoria’s Secret model is of the opinion that children are more heavily influenced by watching what their parents do as opposed to hearing what they say, which is why she encourages Flynn to take part when he spots his mother meditating.

When he sees me meditating, he’ll come sit by me, just feeling the energy,” Kerr wrote in Well+Good.

“He won’t stay for the whole 10 or 20 minutes, but he’ll join me for a bit.”

When putting Flynn to bed, Kerr joins him in doing some guided meditation, which they follow by listening to them on her phone.

However, if Flynn isn’t in the mood for guided meditation, Kerr will improvise and tell him a bedtime story instead to help him drift off.

“It might be about a butterfly and a ladybug that go on these adventures, like swim through crystal clear waters that remove any worries and makes them feel joyful and relaxed,” she said.

“It’s almost like a story and a meditation at the same time and he really loves it; he falls asleep in no time.”

Practising mindfulness isn’t just about doing meditation. It can also carry across to all aspects of life, as Kerr explains.

“I encourage Flynn to have creative time to express himself, during which he does things like draw and paint. He also loves to be outside,” she said.

“I just feel that, at the end of the day, health is wealth. When you take care of yourself – body and mind – you’ll be able to give so much more.

“I’ve learned this along the way, but I want my kids to know it from the start.”
