Mindfulness in the Middle @ Roycemore School
We spend a lot of time developing our intelligence in school and strengthening our bodies through sports or exercise. But we give our mind very little attention. In fact, where do we think our mind even is? Most of us aren’t exactly sure, especially right now during COVID, our minds are EVERYWHERE!
When we develop and strengthen our mind we are increasing our ability to focus, recognize and manage our emotions, make better decisions, and empathize in our relationships.
Mindfulness is paying attention to our experience in a way that allows us to respond rather than react. It is a quality of inner-stillness that is always available, even when our life or circumstances feel out of our control and chaotic.
During the month of September and the early part of October, during homeroom each morning, we are teaching our students the eighteen 15-minute lessons that make up the Mindful Schools curriculum. As a faculty, we are benefiting as much from learning these practices as our students!
