    What is mindfulness?

    Mindfulness is the development of awareness in relation to our bodies, emotions, and thoughts. With mindfulness, we can increase our ability to respond appropriately in any given situation.

    Benefits of mindfulness for children:

    • Mindful children experience less stress, anxiety and sadness, are better able to cope with change and other stressors.

    • Mindful children have more confidence in themselves and their decisions and tend to perform better academically

    • Mindful children are better able to focus and concentrate, are more resilient and are all around happier and more content
