How can I be mindful at school? Educate. Tell students that mindfulness is when you pause and focus on the present moment. Explain that there are many times during the school day when being mindful can help them to greet others, manage mood, calm down, or get their minds ready for learning.
Why is mindfulness taught in schools? A new study suggests that mindfulness education — lessons on techniques to calm the mind and body — can reduce the negative effects of stress and increase students’ ability to stay engaged, helping them stay on track academically and avoid behavior problems.
What is mindful teaching? Mindful teaching occurs when one is aware of the self, aware of the environment, and engages in compassion (towards self and other) as a result. Awareness of the self means the teacher understands how she perceives with all her senses, which involves both cognitive and non-cognitive processes.
