About this event

WHAT?

Two MIT studies suggest mindfulness can enhance middle schoolers' academic performance and mental health. Practising mindfulness helps one develop the ability to focus on the present moment and not be distracted by external things or internal thoughts.

The program incorporates principles of mindfulness with an emphasis on attention training, emotion regulation and relating with others. It offers an opportunity for participants to know more about mindfulness and explore ways mindfulness might support them through the challenges they face. They will also learn some tools that could help them to train their attention, calm down and reduce stress. In addition, the course will heighten participants' awareness of the present moment and encourage them to cultivate attitudes such as gratitude, curiosity and kindness.

Learning activities include:

  • Fun Quizzes & games
  • Discussions
  • Reflections
  • Guided mindfulness practices & mindful movement

What to bring:

  • a yoga mat (for lesson 2),
  • a water bottle and a thin jacket/shawl.
