• Mindfulness

    Mind Full or Mindful?

    Guidance lessons this year have focused on topics including expressing and coping with feelings, solving conflicts, being grateful, optimism, and more. All of these skills require one main skill: MINDFULNESS!

    The power of mindfulness is proven through scientific research. It can help improve our overall health and well-being. Students will remember that mindfulness can help in areas such as: 

    • Coping with stress, anxiety, and other uncomfortable emotions

    • Focus and attention

    • Resiliency (overcoming challenges)

    • Empathy (understanding others)

    • Self-control

    • Engagement and connection to school, work, peers

    • Creativity

    Kids and adults alike can use mindfulness to experience real changes in the way we experience our day to day lives.

    Like any skill, the more you practice mindfulness, the more you will get out of it.
