Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
Ninja Focus, a mindfulness and mental wellness app for children, has been handpicked and is being featured by Google as part of its “Apps for Healthy Habits” collection.
The collection is designed to support kids’ learning about healthy habits to kick start the new year, according to a press release.
Ninja Focus is a digital mental wellness platform, created for kids and families. It offers digital tools in the form of breathing exercises, guided yoga and meditation, mindfulness, and helps children navigate their emotions, and sleep better, the release states.
The decision to include Ninja Focus was made by Google’s Kids & Families team, which manages the Teacher Approved Program. To curate the list, Google partnered with Alliance for A Healthier Generation, a leading children’s health organization driven by its mission to ensure that every mind, everybody, and every young person is healthy and ready to succeed.
“Post-pandemic there has been a significant increase in ADHD and anxiety, impacting the mental health of children of all ages. The Ninja Focus app was designed to improve the overall mental well-being of children, improve focus, reduce anxiety, and help them to sleep better,” said Praveen Mamnani, co-founder and CEO of Ninja Focus.
“We’re thrilled that Google and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation are recognizing our success and that Ninja Focus can be exposed to even more parents as a learning tool that helps their kids learn healthy habits in this new year.”
