Mindfulness and meditation aren’t always easy concepts for energy-filled kids to grasp, but a new series on Hulu can help. Stop, Breathe & Think Kids mindfulness videos on Hulu can help those never-stop-moving tots do exactly that, which means maybe you can have a minute to stop, breathe and think too.

The makers of the Stop, Breathe & Think wellness app for kids have launched a series of mindfulness-themed animated episodes. The videos aim to teach kids mindfulness techniques in an entertaining and fun way. The episodes focus on ideas like Quiet, Focus, Caring and Connecting and Sleep. The episodes can turn screen time from a mindless distraction to an engaging activity that promotes wellness.

“At a time when everyone is concerned about young kids’ device usage, these videos are like healthy digital snacks,” CEO Julie Campistron said in a press release. “Rather than offering escapism or distraction, they nudge kids towards full presence and help them address the complete range of their emotions. We have learned so much recently about how effective screen-delivered mindfulness and meditation activities truly are, and we are excited about what this will mean for today’s kids.”

The episodes are available to stream now on Hulu. They range in time from 30 seconds to six minutes in length. The Stop, Breathe & Think app, which features over 40 mindfulness activities, is available to download on iOs and Android.
