Mindfulness for Kids and Teens

Cultivating mental resilience early provides students with a toolkit of life skills to cope, or even thrive in the face of adversity and challenging circumstances. Mindfulness is the moment-to-moment awareness that arises from paying attention to our body sensations, emotions and thoughts. The mindfulness curriculum is adapted from the paws b and dot-b curriculum (Mindfulness in Schools Project, UK) and tailored to meet the needs of our students in Singapore.

Through mindfulness practice, participants will learn to cultivate self-awareness and apply simple and effective mindfulness techniques to regulate their emotions, improve their focus through enhanced attentional control and to make better choices in stressful situations.

Each session will be taught using a combination of fun-filled games, hands-on experiential mindfulness practices and interactive group sharing.

Topics include:

  • Making Friends with Our Body, Brain and Mind
