Mindful Mondays

Life is hard. Mindfulness can help.
Mindfulness refers to a set of practices, certain habits of mind - as well as a general way of being in life.
Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It’s about knowing what is on your mind.
Another way to say it - mindfulness is paying attention to your life here and now with kindness and curiosity.

When + How?
Mindfulness can be done during sitting meditation, movement activities such as running, walking or yoga and even while eating, doing school work or during other typical daily moments.
Beginning on December 7th, join Mrs. Cory each Monday morning at 8:15 am to learn how to use mindfulness as a way to help with the challenges present in your daily life. Meet details below!
Mindfulness practices in schools have been shown to improve students’ emotional well-being, academic performance and relationships.
Email Mrs. Cory with questions or for more information!

Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
Hello Fairview Park Families!

The last few weeks I have been writing articles related to students returning to school... organization, sleep habits, etc. Here is a great resource from the CDC.

The other day, I hosted a Parent University on Phone Addiction. Many educators are seeing that students are not getting a proper night's sleep — because they are on their phones. According to Dr. Michelle O'Connor, my guest speaker, she said the following are signs to look for that your child may have a phone addiction:
  • Negative impact on daily functioning (staying isolated in room, not attending family functions, etc)
  • Feeling uneasy or anxious when unable to access phone
  • Their phone becomes a coping mechanism.

Are you as the parent seeing your child with sleep disturbances, signs of depression and/or anxiety, low self-esteem, or increased irritability? Try to:
  • Limit cell phone use - involve your child in setting limits, designate times when using phone is prohibited and encourage face to face interactions.
  • Discourage phone use 1 hour before bed - and Yes....parents get the phone for the evening.
  • Find other activities your child enjoys

My interview with Dr. O'Connor will be posted to my FACE page soon.
