What is MINDFULNESS and how can it BENEFIT STUDENTS?

Posted by:

Mindfulness is the act of being present...being aware of just the here and now. Students and adults in this crazy time of COVID-19, have concerns that can be overwhelming, and practicing mindfulness can help release the worries of things past and the fear of an unknown future.

Simple meditation exercises - belly breathing, body scan, humming or finger-tutting - can be practiced, and as we learn new tasks and practice them, we become better and better at those tasks. We build and grow those connections in our brain that help us to automate behaviors. Meditation has been proven to increase calm, responsiveness, memory, and attention spans.

This YouTube Playlist will introduce you and your students to Mindfulness practices and philosophies.
