Congratulations to all the children (sorry some of you were away when the picture was taken) who have completed the 12 weeks programme of Mindfulness.
Mindfulness involves training our attention to experience the present moment with greater curiosity and kindness. This helps us to not only appreciate and be grateful for what is going well but to respond more skillfully to life's inevitable challenges.
During the course we have learnt about our amazing brain and many other things, including:
- Specific areas of the brain and how these affect our ability to focus, make good choices and recognise when we need to steady ourselves when our body or mind is busy or out of balance.
- Ways that mindfulness can support us in many day-to-day activities, including concentration and memory, behavioural self- management, and in relationships with family and friends.
- Ways to respond rather than react – and therefore make better choices and take better care of ourselves.
