For most parents, balancing screen time has always been a challenge. But over this last year, the struggle became even more real, with three in five parents allowing an increase in time spent on gadgets. And as Google saw searches seeking fun at home activities for kids and mindfulness for kids trend, they decided to help parents and kids navigate these difficult times by teaming up with Headspace for a new video series called “Headspace Breathers.”

Featuring seven fun, entertaining episodes, Headspace Breathers covers everything from balancing screen time to balancing emotions, as well as helping kids focus, finding positivity, and dealing with separation from loved ones and friends. These videos are aimed at providing the support families need to help find balance and contentment in a stressful time where screen time has increased dramatically. Over the next few months, an episode from the new Headspace Breathers series will debut weekly on YouTube and YouTube Kids.
