The best teachers always begin each day in a mindful way. They make a point of standing by the school door and greeting every student with an open heart and welcoming smile. And now, it is time for the children to acquire these same skills of mindfulness and awareness so they too can enjoy the benefits. Benefits such as:
-strengthened resiliency and decision making
-increased enthusiasm for learning and academic success
-development of positive social skills such as empathy and patience
-reduction in peer-to-peer conflict
This presentation will introduce children to the practice of mindfulness, allow them to explore both mindful and unmindful choices, and to discuss the benefits of mindful awareness.
