100% of donations we receive will be used for scholarships.
Mindfulness is a research-based technique that involves purposefully bringing awareness to one's own body, mind, and environment before taking action. Mindfulness creates space, changing impulsive and habitual reactions to thoughtful responses and helping to address issues at their root, before they gain strong momentum.
It has four major benefits in schools:
- It helps educators reduce burnout and increase their resiliency.
- It improves student behavior, giving teachers a highly effective classroom management tool.
- It helps children regulate their emotions and increase their learning aptitude.
- It counteracts the constant shortening of attention spans (both in children and adults) by media and technology.
We are a non-profit organization that offers professional training, online courses, and other resources to support mindfulness in education. Learn more at www.MindfulSchools.org.
