Product Description
This worksheet asks middle and high school students what might be the benefits of knowing where your mind is going, followed by a description of the train metaphor of mindfulness. Your thoughts are like trains--they come and go, and you don't have to jump on every one. This is followed by mindfulness practice, which is cued on the worksheet with a “Let’s Practice” picture. The practice of the day should have the students be aware of every time their thoughts wander off, and then have them gently come back to their breath. After practice, the students are asked to write down where their thoughts went during practice. This is followed by a written reflection, and a challenge for the week.

This worksheet is designed to support those educators who are teaching mindfulness in small groups or classrooms. In my own experience teaching mindfulness to high schoolers, I found that some students needed a little more structure to keep them focused on the mindfulness lessons, especially after we had been practicing for a while. They needed something other than just listening to me talk at the front of the room! I designed these worksheets to keep the students engaged during the lessons, and have found myself quite moved at the honesty in which they express themselves in the questions and the reflection.
