What is Mindfulness?

Teaching is incredibly challenging work. Educating and mentoring our youth is a calling that draws some of the most dedicated people on the planet.

It’s tough, high-stakes work, which can lead to one feeling stressed, burnt-out and overwhelmed.Cultivating mindfulness means developing skills to build attention, improve focus, and manage stress.

As teachers, this allows us to feel nourished and energized to support and connect with students in the classroom, at home, and beyond.

When Mindful educators, mentors, and parents feel more calm, effective, creative, and confident; they’re less likely to burn-out, and our students are less likely to miss out on their talents.

Research confirms that, mindfulness can help adults and children in many ways including:

Improvement of mental health and wellbeing.

•Reduction of the effects and impact of bullying.

•Improved feelings of joy and being able to cope.

•Enhancement of focus in those with ADHD.

•Reduction in problems related to lack or mis-attention.

•Improvement in social skills (especially when well taught and practiced in children and adolescents).
