Lovatts Media adds to teen mindfulness collection with KIT

Publisher Lovatts Media has added another title to its suite of mindfulness products, this time aimed at helping teens navigate the stress of modern life.

KIT was created with eight to 14-year-olds in mind, and will offer something for both boys and girls who are searching for meaning and purpose in their everyday lives, the publisher said.

The launch issue of KIT will cover topics including mindfulness, mental and physical health, sports and hobbies, science, coding and positive life skills such as cooking and knot tying. There will also be hands-on activities like drawing comics, building a compass and enjoying nature.

KIT editor Carly Saillard said KIT will aim to help young people escape.

“KIT acts as the trusted friend young minds can turn to when they need an escape from the pressures often thrust upon them by modern society,” said Saillard.

“Between the bombardment of materialism and the blurring of lines between virtual and real life, our digitally inclined youth can find renewed inspiration to create their best lives now while chasing their dreams for the future. KIT presents an entertaining handbook to foster their adventurous spirit while encouraging them to develop their emotional intelligence and resilience.”

KIT joins Lovatts title Teen Breathe and comes as the publisher seeks to continue growing its mindfulness for teens offering. Where Teen Breathe focuses on thoughtful and calming pursuits like arts, journaling and mediation, KIT will look at active mindfulness including sports, hands-on science and outdoor activities.

“Since the launch of our best-selling magazine Teen Breathe, we’ve been inundated with letters and requests from parents for a mindful equivalent to inspire both boys and girls with a more adventurous spirit,” Publisher and Lovatts Media CEO Rachael Northey said.

“After years of thoughtful planning and curation, KIT embodies a truly unique, quality magazine that our loyal readers have patiently waited for to support their teens through their most impressionable years.”

Lovatts recently launched Mindful Parenting, adding to their expansive network of mindful content including Breathe Magazine Australia and Audrey Daybook. The publisher also recently revamped its online store to allow readers to shop online for its titles.

Contributors to KIT include Maggie Dent, Rebecca Sparrow, and Mark Crilley ,as well as notable organisations including Scouts Australia, Shark Conservation Australia and Decks For Change.

KIT is currently available online or will be available at newsagents and supermarkets from August 5 with a retail cover price of $9.95.
