There is a wealth of evidence that demonstrates the value of mindfulness. We are inundated 24/7 by some form of media, work schedules that are increasingly demanding because we are only as far away as our nearest device, after school schedules that require color-coded calendars to manage, and an ever-increasing pressure to do more, more, more. The brain isn’t designed to work that way.
Recent research exploring the value of mindfulness, has found from managing emotions to resolving conflicts to creating the optimal conditions for learning in the brain, incorporating mindfulness generates huge rewards for the teacher and the student. Mindfulness-based practices can be an effective way to reduce stress and anxiety in students and improve their academic and behavioral outcomes.
