“Mindfulness is the act of being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling at every moment — without interpretation or judgment. Spending too much time planning, problem solving, daydreaming, or thinking negative or random thoughts can be draining. It can also make you more likely to experience stress, anxiety and symptoms of depression. Practicing mindfulness exercises, on the other hand, can help you direct your attention away from this kind of thinking and engage with the world around you.” MayoClinic.org
Schools are now implementing mindfulness into their curriculums. This is an introductory course to give you a chance to try it out for yourself as well as for your classroom.
