The practice of quietening the mind to bring awareness and attention to the present moment is known as mindfulness. It’s a skill that can be very useful in educational settings as it can help increase concentration and instill a sense of calm.
Practiced regularly, mindfulness helps children to regulate their emotions and reduces feelings of stress and anxiety. It can improve their ability to cope with distress by restoring emotional balance when bringing their attention to the thoughts, emotions and physical sensations they’re experiencing in that moment.
Many teachers who use mindfulness report calmer classrooms, more attentive students and more effective learning. Based on adult research, mindfulness is growing in popularity and being used in schools around the world as an effective tool to enhance student and teacher well-being, as well as academic performance.
