Students who have been instructed in “mindfulness” experience increases in test scores and executive functioning – as well as in focus and attention – while showing decreases in stress, anxiety, depression and bullying. This 90-minute webinar will highlight how mindfulness is gaining exposure as an effective tool in social and emotional development, especially in an educational setting.
Cultivating “mindfulness” involves acquiring the tools to live life with greater awareness, attention and intention. This means getting off autopilot – off circular, habitual and often unskillful patterns of reacting – and developing more insightful methods of responding. When being mindful, one has the ability to allow whatever is arising in the moment to exist, without judgment, to create space around it, to acknowledge it, and then to make a conscious choice of what to do with it.
Mindfulness is an ancient contemplative wisdom practice that has seen a surge in application in many facets of modern society over recent years. These time-tested tools have been further validated by current neuroscientific findings on neuroplasticity – the ability of our brains to change. This concept confirms what has been known for centuries: when we live with conscious awareness, not only do we experience greater peace, calm and joy, but we also have the ability to handle life’s difficult challenges. When being mindful, one has a greater ability to tolerate difficult emotions without them taking over.
Offering students the time to slow down in their day and connect with themselves is an invaluable tool that benefits the whole student. Mindfulness provides students the tools they need to be present and aware – so they can absorb what is being taught and increase academic achievement.
