Mindful Mondays

Life is hard. Mindfulness can help.
 
What?
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!
 
Why?
Mindfulness practices in schools have been shown to improve students’ emotional well-being, academic performance and relationships.
